Creating public and private sector infrastructure is one of the pillars on which Dillon was founded more than 70 years ago and remains a key component of what we do today.
Our clients are local, regional, national, and international, and we are geographically positioned to serve them all well. Our network of offices serving every region of Canada means we are fully conversant with local needs, approval mechanisms, and construction practices.
We plan, design and manage Canadian and offshore infrastructure in three key areas: transportation, environmental facilities and utilities.
Our clients will tell you that Dillon knows their systems and facilities as well as they do. They’ll also tell you that we share their passion for making things work better, more safely and cost-effectively.
Dillon’s strength lies in providing clients with a wide range of specialized services, including strategic planning and policy development, systems and facilities planning, capital planning, facilities design, environmental assessment, and operational optimization.
Many of our transportation clients depend on us for planning and design services related to new facilities. And with the maturation of much of the public transportation system, timely maintenance and rehabilitation of existing facilities has become an increasingly important area of practice.
The technology for public health protection and environmental management has undergone radical change over the last two decades. Dillon has been at the forefront of that change and we take the view that there remains much opportunity for innovation in the way environmental responsibilities are executed.
Our clients know that environmental infrastructure is as much about economics and public acceptance as it is about technology. Public-private partnerships, community-based facility siting, alternative dispute resolution, contract operations, and cooperative business solutions are part of the new language of environmental infrastructure.
Clients depend on us for policy development and research, environmental assessment, feasibility analyses, system planning and development, optimization, and maintenance procedure development as well as for traditional engineering design.
Dillon is a familiar name to Canada's public and private utilities sector. Whether it is natural gas, hydroelectric, nuclear, or communications, we’ve been there. Our utilities sector planners, designers and managers understand the technological, safety, economic, environmental and political sensitivities inherent in the field. We’ve been exposed to every facet of the business, from co-generation to distribution.

- Dams, weirs, channels
