Who We Are
IBI Group is a global team of industry leading architects, engineers, planners, designers, and technology professionals united by a common desire: to create livable, sustainable, technologically advanced urban environments. We are a technology-driven design firm.
IBI Group is defining the cities of tomorrow
From high-rises to industrial buildings, schools to state-of-the-art hospitals, transit stations to highways, airports to toll systems, bike lanes to parks, we design every aspect of truly integrated cities.
Our collaborative approach focuses on future-forward solutions. We’re bridging the gap between design and technology, unlocking new potential in data-driven environments.
We believe in cities built upon intelligent systems, sustainable buildings, efficient infrastructure, and the human touch.
What we stand for
These are the guiding principles and beliefs that inform and inspire everything our firm does.
Our Senior Management team and Board of Directors are made up of professional practice leaders and industry experts guiding the operations of our publicly-traded global firm, and more importantly, setting out a compelling vision for the cities of tomorrow for our clients, investors and partners.
Our team is a global collective of urban experts in design, architecture, engineering, civil, transportation, urban geography, real estate, landscape, communications, software development and so much more. These are the people defining the cities of tomorrow.
IBI Group was founded in 1974 by nine partners to provide professional services in planning and design for urban development and transportation. Even then, we maintained a relentless focus on integrating all of our different disciplines to provide more holistic solutions to our clients.
From the initial two offices in Toronto and Vancouver, IBI Group has grown to over 60 offices in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, with more than 2,500 employees.
In 2000, we experienced strategic growth through acquisitions and in 2004, the firm went public with the formation of the IBI Income Fund. The Fund was converted to a corporation – IBI Group Inc. – at the end of 2010.
Global reach. Local focus.
IBI has over 60 offices in major urban centres across the globe, all of which are tightly connected to promote international collaboration and intelligence sharing.
As the global partner to plan, design, build, and sustain the cities of tomorrow, we are committed to doing what is right. We encourage environmentally responsible practices inside and invested in a sustainable future.
