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

Lindsay Austrom, P.Eng., CEM, LEED® AP BD+C – Principal Engineer, Sustainability

I started as an engineer-in-training assisting with mechanical design projects, but I was also exposed to sustainable design very early in my career.  My first position was with Keen Engineering here in Edmonton, when the firm was right in the middle of the green building boom that saw widespread adoption of the LEED green building rating system as well as energy modelling. 

After I earned my P.Eng. in 2006, I continued to split my role between mechanical design and LEED certifications. I focused on the related standards and calculations (heating and cooling loads, ventilation, thermal comfort, stormwater management) and I became the LEED specialist to assist design teams in solving technical issues.

Once I had ten years of project experience, I started taking on project management to expand my skills and work more directly with clients.  It was also around this time that my team started expanding our sustainability focus to existing buildings, so I got involved with LEED and BOMA BEST certifications for building operations as well as energy management. I started conducting energy and water audits and I earned my Certified Energy Manager credential in 2018. I then joined WEC shortly afterwards as the Sustainability Team Lead in Edmonton, to finally take on a full-time role in sustainability.

Marla Snoddon, P.Eng. – Team Lead, Building Science

I started my career as a co-op student with a start-up building envelope firm in 2010 and graduated from the University of Calgary with a Civil Engineering degree. I realized I enjoyed the hands-on involvement that building science engineers experience in their day-to-day work. Working on existing buildings provided the gratification of helping people recover their homes.

Over the years, I have been exposed to many different building types and environments and have worked with various architects, contractors, and owners. In addition, I believe in giving back to the building envelope industry by volunteering my time on several boards and committees. As part of the ABECN board and IIBEC peer review committee, I have exposed myself to different perspectives within the community while contributing to improving the industry.

As a building science engineer, I’m proud to have delivered consulting and design services for a wide range of new and existing buildings; however, I’m most passionate about helping owners better understand their buildings and how to best construct, repair, and maintain them in order to meet the needs of their tenants, the environment, and the communities in which they are situated in.
