A human approach

A DIFFERENT VISION OF ENGINEERING

With a large experience as a department manager and project manager for renowned engineering firms, our founder, Jean-Philippe Lemire, started P54 with a strong conviction to bring a different face to engineering.

THE CHOICE OF AN ENGINEERING FIRM SHOULD BE BASED ON THE EXPERTS WHO WORK THERE AND THE TIME THEY HAVE TO DEVOTE TO US.

– Jean-Philippe Lemire

Our vision is to help restore the reputation of Quebec’s consulting engineering industry, where our technical expertise has been proven time and again.

OUR MISSION IS TO DEVELOP BY BUILDING ON OUR EXPERTISE AND EXPANDING OUR KNOWLEDGE TO OTHER SECTORS.

  • MEET AND EXCEED OUR CLIENTS’ EXPECTATIONS
  • PROVIDE A STIMULATING WORK ENVIRONMENT FOR OUR TEAMS AND EMPLOYEES
  • BUILD LASTING RELATIONSHIPS WITH QUALITY SUBCONTRACTORS AND SUPPLIERS

A dazzling growth

Between 2019 and 2021, the P54 team has grown from 26 employees to over 60. Recognizing that our employees are our greatest asset, we are proud to have built a strong team of talented and passionate people.

A PROMISING MERGER, ADAPTED AND COMPLEMENTARY SERVICES

The undeniable experience of the firm CPF Groupe Conseil, expert in structural engineering, was combined with the P54 banner in the summer of 2021. It is under the sign of continuity that our customers benefit from the added value of this merger: expertise, personalized service and availability.
