Global perspective, local presence
Open to the world and often working in an international environment, our engineers combine global expertise with local experience to provide the best possible response to the various problems encountered by our clients. This means that we can understand the specificities of a given context, interpret the issues at stake and apply our knowledge and skills in concrete situations, rooted in everyday realities.
Technical quality and expertise
In Canada, where there is substantial demand for transportation, Egis offers a wide range of skills and technical expertise on all types of infrastructure, including roads, trains (high-speed and suburban), light rail, metros, electric buses and cable cars.
In the highway sector, we are assisting the Ministère des Transports du Québec with the extensive upgrading of the Louis-Hippolyte-La Fontaine tunnel (expert advisor and then independent certifier), the only road tunnel running between Montreal and its suburbs, and with the preparation of the preliminary design and supervision of the Québec-Lévis tunnel within Union des Rives consortium, which runs under the St. Lawrence River between Québec City and Lévis.
In public transport, we are assisting the Société des Transports de Montréal (STM) with its metro network extension and modernisation projects. Egis is also an Independent Safety Assessor (ISA) on the Réseau Express Métropolitain (REM) project on behalf of the NouvLR consortium. We advise several of our private clients on public transport projects in alternative modes (PPP, Alliance or Progressive Design and Build) with design, engineering and integration assignments.
Our Group has also worked on consulting and auditing missions in civil engineering, ventilation, transportation systems, safety, operation and maintenance on several greenfield (public or private) or brownfield projects in Canada.
The people commitment
In application of our values and commitments, our teams are committed to developing and implementing, on each of their projects, a policy of innovation, sustainability and social responsibility in accordance with the needs and requirements of their clients.
