Global professional services company acquires Cavalieri & Associates as it increases its industrials footprint in Canada.
Turner & Townsend is increasing its project and program management services in Canada with the acquisition of Ontario-based Cavalieri & Associates Ltd., a project and development manager with specialization in commercial and industrial construction.
Based in Cavalieri’s existing office in Mississauga, Ont., a combined Turner & Townsend Cavalieri team aims to expand and diversify the firm’s client base across the industrial, manufacturing and technology sectors.
The company says the team will enhance value for its clients through combined scale, capacity and capability, in addition to providing a more diverse suite of services, expertise and geographical footprint, which is timely given the rising demand for large scale industrial buildings and distribution centres.
Cavalieri & Associates has almost four decades of experience in the design and build, and development industry. The firm has been involved with hundreds of facilities totalling millions of square feet of industrial and commercial space, working with such clients as Toyota, Kubota, Enbridge, Dream and Carttera.
Their experience closely complements and further enhances Turner & Townsend’s own track record in delivering major projects and programmes across the infrastructure, real estate and natural resources sectors in Canada. With offices in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, the business is involved in the delivery of Centre Block Rehabilitation Programme for Canada’s Parliament building, Metrolinx on its capital investment programme, and LNG Canada, one of Canada’s largest energy projects.
“The coming together of Turner & Townsend and Cavalieri will give us the capability and the footprint to ensure superior services for any industrial or manufacturing project requirement, of any size or complexity, anywhere in Canada,” stated Gerard McCabe, managing director for Canada at Turner & Townsend. “This is a unique offering in the market place, which is reinforced by the strength of our growing track record in delivering real impact for our clients across the infrastructure, real estate and natural resources sectors.”
“Almost four decades ago, Cavalieri & Associates set out to challenge the status quo in development and construction, ensuring that the best decisions are made with the best information available while maintaining the highest levels of professionalism, integrity and honesty,” added Claudio Cavalieri, director at Turner & Townsend Cavalieri Inc. “In combining our own deep expertise in project and development management, with the strength and capability of Turner & Townsend in Canada and beyond, we are realizing that mission, while ensuring that we can continue setting the bar ever higher for our clients and their projects as Turner & Townsend Cavalieri.”
Globally, Turner & Townsend has a presence in over 50 countries, employing over 2,000 people across the Americas.
