Lemay Broadens Western Canada Reach with Toker + Associates Merger

Calgary, Canada

Lemay

Award-winning Architects, Designers key to Canadian, international leadership 


Montréal, Canada, 2017-05-12 -

Lemay, one of Canada’s largest and most creative integrated designers of built environments, is proud to be merging with another outstandingly talented team: respected Calgary-based architecture and interior design firm Toker + Associates.

 

Toker’s professionals have demonstrated their exceptional capacities and expertise through a great number of visionary and impactful projects across Canada. This is a concrete step towards Lemay becoming the nation’s integrated services leader.

 

“We are delighted to welcome the Toker team to the Lemay family,” said Louis T. Lemay, the firm’s president and excellence facilitator.

 

“Toker’s excellent reputation and commitment to sustainability and innovation perfectly support our vision to become the Canadian leader and a world reference in the integrated design of sustainable living environments, through a distinctive approach.”

 

The addition of Toker’s 32 architectural and interior design experts boosts Lemay’s headcount to close to 450 Canada-wide. This union of talent and resources from both sides will produce broader career opportunities and multidisciplinary collaboration, as well as support for anticipated growth, particularly in Western Canada.

 

“We are proud to join such an esteemed Canadian leader in offering a wide range of services to clients across Canada,” said Eric Toker, now a Lemay partner and former founding principal of Toker + Associates. “Lemay’s reputation for creativity and flawless delivery extends well beyond our borders.” he continued. “Both sides are extremely pleased with the fact that our missions and values are so similar.”


The transaction, whose value is confidential, will power the growth of both teams while offering clients complementary and renowned expertise nationwide.  In turn, Toker + Associates will gain for its loyal clients the added value of integrated services in urban planning and design, landscape architecture, branding as well as other specialized services such as airport and health infrastructure development.

 

As new Lemay partners, Toker founders Eric and Dedre Toker will continue their leadership of the Calgary office, with a mandate to further develop markets in the region.


The transaction is effective as of May 9, 2017. Toker + Associates will operate under the name Lemay + Toker as of June 1, 2017, and maintain its current offices on 12th Ave. in Calgary.

 

Creative thinking. Collective value.

Founded in 1957 as an architectural practice, Lemay is one of Canada’s leading integrated design services firms, merging architecture, urban design, interiors, landscape, engineering, sustainability and branding into a multidisciplinary and synergistic ensemble. With several offices worldwide, it ranks 74th in the world (World Architecture, 2017). Lemay has won over 350 awards and distinctions and has been a winner of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program since 2013, becoming a Gold Standard winner in 2017. Leveraging its unique blend of creativity, capacity and expertise, Lemay champions its clients' aspirations, enhances users' quality of life and strives to build a brighter future for our communities.
