About Us and Our Integrated Approach


WalterFedy has big plans for the future and we need the best talent to make it happen. As a multi-discipline architecture, engineering and construction firm, the business is always evolving. Our team needs to be agile, ambitious and persistent in the pursuit of our shared goals.  

We have a long history in the Waterloo Region, but that doesn’t mean we’re old-fashioned. We strive to push the envelope, think differently and address everything we do with creativity. When we consistently approach projects in inventive ways, clients get better results, our team thrives and we challenge our industry to redefine what’s possible. 

At WalterFedy, collaboration is a key part of our identity. With so many talented professionals under one roof, you’ll find cross-discipline support for your projects is always within reach. Our team is made up of the industry’s best architects; civil, electrical, mechanical and structural engineers; technologists; energy and carbon specialists; asset and facility management specialists; construction managers and corporate services professionals. Together, we’re building better communities with smart, influential design. 


Facilities management is the combination of management, financial, economic, engineering, and other practices applied to physical assets with the objective of providing the required level of service and occupant comfort in the most cost-effective manner.  Major facilities management and infrastructure projects are typically characterized by uncertainty of outcomes, high stakes related to cost, liability and the inherent competing interests of a host of key stakeholders, including Board members, owners, contractors, architects, designers, and construction staff.  

We are a team of dedicated project professionals that have unsurpassed, cross-sector, deep building industry experience in every aspect of the capital project lifecycle.  Our people possess practical and effective project management, engineering, consulting, and communication skills, as well as strong professional qualities and financial acumen.  


Role Overview

The Facilities Management group at WalterFedy was created to help our clients achieve long-term sustainability and/or optimize the return on investment for their buildings. We accomplish this by providing the necessary experience, technology, and resources to ensure high-quality data is captured, superior analysis is conducted, and capital renewal projects are soundly planned out and executed, thereby maximizing the value of our client’s limited resources and finding the optimum balance between cost and risk.  Our specialists are experts in strategy development, change management, risk management, and decision making to support investment and maintenance planning.  The Facilities Management Group brings practical solutions and adds value at every stage of the project lifecycle for clients in the highly competitive multi-billion-dollar international construction industry.
