A Little About Us

At ISL, we share an enthusiasm for community infrastructure. From planning through to design and construction management, we create nimble teams to tackle the unique requirements of every project. Our technical expertise encompasses transportation, land use planning, civil engineering, municipal, landscape architecture, heritage services, environmental management, water, structural, community engagement, geomatics, construction services and 3D visualization. Just the right size, ISL delivers on complex projects while being small enough to maintain strong, cohesive project teams and personal client attention and service.

  • Ongoing Development - we have a culture of mentorship and leverage both hands on and formal training opportunities to ensure that you have a versatile and diversified skillset.  And did we mention, it is fully funded?
