Our 30-year history began in 1986 with two people – our founder Philip Sacré and a part time office manager named Lesley.

The primary focus of the business was to provide excellent SERVICE in our chosen field. Our mantra was: “When your client calls, serve them. People don’t want to be told they have to wait when they have an immediate problem”. Since our inception, we have grown steadily into a company with engineering and project management expertise in fields as diverse as pulp and paper, oil and gas, clean technologies, ports and marine, chemicals, food and beverage, and the film industry. While we have evolved into the global Sacré-Davey Group with staff totaling in excess of 150 people and offices in North Vancouver, Vernon, Calgary, Regina, Toronto, Seattle, Portland and the UK, our mantra has remained the same, and we are proud to present to you the Sacré-Davey Difference.
