The Industry

Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the most livable communities in the world (The Economist, 2012), and this title comes not only as a result of Vancouver being surrounded by scenic mountains and ocean, but also for the city’s spectacular modern architecture.

Now in the run for being the world’s greenest city by the year 2020, Vancouver is investing heavily in sustainable architecture as well as in green design.

With numerous elite civil engineering and architecture firms spread throughout the city, Vancouver’s architecture industry continues to boom with abundant opportunity at hand.

Also recognized for being a clean and efficient city, Vancouver’s top-quality infrastructure design contributes to the high standard of living which the city offers to its residents.

Recently, Vancouver has been facing issues with significant traffic congestion, giving its civil engineers plenty of opportunities to develop more efficient and innovative solutions to this issue and many others.
