TORONTO — Kansas City-based CRB, a design, engineering and construction services firm specializing in builds in the life sciences and technology sectors, recently announced it has opened its first Canadian office, in Mississauga, Ont.
The firm espouses a One Solution approach to projects, notes a July 9 release, combining architectural, engineering development and design through to construction and commissioning services in one team.
The office will be overseen by Daniel Lachapelle, a mechanical engineer and veteran CRB regional team leader with 30 years of professional experience in the field. He also holds a certificate in advanced management from McGill University in Montreal.
