Help us brighten lives!

Our passionate team of professionals embodies Williams Engineering’s values, while pursuing safe, inclusive, resilient and sustainable cities.

What Drives Us

After decades of operation, we did a deep dive into our core purpose:

How do we change lives with what we do?
Why are we different?
What is our impact?

Through this journey, we realized that our team members’ collective energy, care and attention isn’t solely focused on designing a building. Instead, our focus is on every person who walks into a library, condominium, school or hospital and how these structures impact their lives both today and in the future. For us, this work is about who uses these spaces and how, creating buildings that serve our communities, not the other way around! We provide the people we serve with inclusive spaces designed to foster positivity.

Our experts focus on staying up to date with the latest technology and trends in each of our disciplines. Delivering inspired solutions and exceptional results occurs by taking responsibility for the success of our client’s projects and creating communication that supports that success. Our greatest resource is our people, and we believe investing in our team members’ growth, development, and technical training ensures our mutual success.

Why Join Us

We are a passionate group of changemakers. We thrive on challenging work which inspires us to do our best each and every day. Our culture supports that through training and development, office social events, reward and recognition programs, open communication, and a strong belief in bringing joy to our work! Each of us is celebrated on our birthdays and when we reach service milestones with a special gift. Our teams have a mix of long-tenured, highly skilled team members along with new and learning employees. Many of our teammates have moved through the organization and upskilled into management or specialized roles. We believe in promoting and developing our talent from within!

What We Offer

We believe that a diverse team leads to diverse thoughts and better work. We recognize that our team does much more than engineer solutions and solve our client’s challenges; they can impact the communities where they live and work while developing and growing relationships with community leaders. To positively impact our communities, we must start by positively impacting our own team. As a result, it means providing fair compensation, training, advancement opportunities and an open and honest team environment. For every team member to thrive, Williams Engineering believes maintaining a healthy work-life balance is essential. We offer a flexible work environment to support our team members’ full, unique lives.

Teammate Career Path Stories

Sarah Davies - Project Coordinator

I began my career in 2019 as a Human Resources Assistant and Receptionist at TransCanada Turbines. In this role, I provided company-wide administrative support to a variety of service lines with responsibilities that spanned from onboarding new employees, scheduling training, and supporting employee offboarding processes. I initially joined Williams Engineering as a Project Assistant in 2021, quickly enjoying the variety of projects I was able to work on and the opportunity to hone my organizational skills and attention to detail.  

After building a solid foundation as a Project Assistant, I moved into my current role as Project Coordinator, playing a pivotal role in supporting the Project Managers I work under. In this position, I’m able to learn how to manage complex project schedules, track deliverables, and help ensure seamless coordination for a successful project outcome. Over the years, I have benefitted from the incredible mentorship culture at Williams Engineering, which has been instrumental in shaping my professional growth and learning within my career, while also fostering a collaborative and enriching work environment.

I’m excited about what the future will hold at Williams Engineering and encourage other individuals with a passion for problem-solving and overcoming challenges to consider a career in project coordination. The opportunities to collaborate with diverse teams on a massive range of projects are endless, and each day begins with a new challenge!

Ben Feltmate, P.Eng. - Mechanical Engineer

IIn 2016, I graduated from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering and the Engineer’s Nova Scotia Convocation Award. I immediately hopped on a plane to Iceland and continued to travel east until I returned to Nova Scotia after a full lap around the world in one year to the day. After returning to Nova Scotia, I worked as a stone mason’s apprentice until I found an engineering job as an Energy Efficiency Coordinator. Then, one day like getting struck by lightning, I knew I was going to move to the north. I borrowed $1,500 from my Dad for a one-way ticket to Whitehorse and found a new home. I worked 6 different jobs simultaneously my first year up here and saved every penny I could until a year after landing with nothing but $1,500 in debt, I’d bought my first house, made some amazing new friends and practiced as an EIT. My first project in Whitehorse was a solar PV installation at 183 Range Road, and if you check the satellite view on Google maps, you can see it! I worked at Northwestel Inc. for my first 3 years up here, then took a mini-retirement down to South America and started at Williams immediately after getting back on my birthday!

Since starting at Williams in August 2022, I have become a significantly better engineer than I used to be. Designing buildings has been a new challenge for me to learn and it’s been rewarding both in how I appreciate buildings as I walk through them and how I’ve been able to help my friends and families with questions they’ve had on comfort in their own homes. I’m proud to be part of a team that impacts so many different communities across western and northern Canada, and especially proud that there are projects here in Whitehorse that I’ve been able to help with and one I even had the opportunity to personally stamp; a milestone moment for me. I get to work with excellent people and I’ve learned a lot.

My recommendations to anyone are to treat others well, ask for and accept help, stay positive, be tenacious, always learn, and invest your time and money wisely. These are the things that have served me the best so far.

I’m looking forward to more time and projects with Williams. I have no doubt the future will be an adventure.
