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.
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.
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 3,000 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.
