Fast + Epp launches Toronto office

March 12, 2024

In recent years, we’ve had the privilege of working on several remarkable projects in Eastern Canada. Inspired by these experiences, establishing a permanent presence in this region became the natural next step in our firm’s growth. With great excitement, we announce the opening of our Toronto office.

Located at 119 Spadina Ave, our Toronto office underscores our commitment to providing ambitious and creative structural design across North America. Our newest location will serve as the hub for project delivery in Eastern Canada, with a continued emphasis on collaboration and design excellence in various sectors, including cultural, post-secondary, sports and recreation, civic, and transportation and aviation.

Our projects in this region –  including the award-winning Limberlost Place at George Brown College (main image), Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation Headquarters, New Brunswick Museum, and  Ādisōke (Ottawa Public Library and Library and Archives Canada joint facility) – have been a catalyst in deciding to open our Toronto operations.

“As a firm dedicated to advancing structural design and propelling architectural imagination across North America, a hub in Toronto is a natural next step for us,” said Robert Jackson, Partner at Fast + Epp. “We place great value on our ability to provide consistent and exceptional service on all our design commissions, and this new office in Eastern Canada will enable us to do just that.”

Newly appointed Associate Principal Pierre Koch will oversee the Toronto office. With over 25 years of local experience, Pierre brings a wealth of knowledge to his new role at Fast + Epp, and will be joined by a team of engineers and technicians, with support from Fast + Epp’s North American and digital offices.

“I have been a part of the design community in Toronto for two decades and I am very excited at the opportunity to share my passion for efficient, elegant design with the talented team at Fast + Epp,” said Pierre.

“It’s an exciting time to be in Toronto. There continues to be great design opportunity for architectural expression and exposed structure on many projects in the region, and we are eager to play a small role in contributing to them,” said Robert Jackson. “Our commitment to reducing embodied carbon within our structures is stronger than ever, and we look forward to collaborating with designers who share these same values.”
