Entuitive's Commitment to Technical Excellence
Entuitive’s approach to delivering uncompromising performance is driven by our purpose to build a better world in service of our team, our valued clients, and the communities in which we live and work. It is underpinned by our Commitment to Technical Excellence, which rests on four pillars: our Knowledge Centres, Quality Assurance program, Quality Control process, and Technical Enrichment through Learning.
Organized around our One Company culture, meaning our global team works together rather than being siloed, our pillars ensure that our people have access to all the information and tools they need to consistently deliver the highest quality projects Entuitive is known for.
Explore our Commitment to Technical Excellence with our dynamic piece here, and keep reading to learn more about each pillar.
The first of these pillars is our Knowledge Centres. Knowledge Centres represent the core areas of expertise required to fulfill our commitments to our clients. Our many KCs include the various structure and material types, disciplines, codes, and standards.
Each KC comprises subject matter experts from different areas of Entuitive, who support a mentoring culture and foster learning at all levels. Many of our SMEs also sit on code committees, boards, and conduct research in order to stay at the forefront of the industry.
“Our Knowledge Centres are important because they ensure that everyone has access to the same tools, knowledge, and experts,” says Ian Trudeau, Associate and Technical Board member. “At Entuitive, it’s all for one and one for all. By working together, we produce the best results for our clients.”

The second pillar, our Quality Assurance program, provides all the tools our designers need to deliver great work for great clients. These tools include in-house design aids, templates for our analytical and BIM software, design manuals, and sample drawing libraries.
Another way to ensure we’re working together, our QA program ensures our team consistently delivers the highest quality products no matter which office they sit in.
“Our clients expect creative, advanced solutions tailored to their needs,” says Ian. “Our QA program ensures our team is using the same tools and resources across the board, so whether we’re delivering a project in Vancouver, New York, London, or any of our other offices, our clients can rest assured knowing we’ve delivered the highest quality project the Entuitive Way.”

Each Entuitive project undergoes a rigorous Quality Control process before being delivered to our clients. Our Quality Control Committee oversees the firm’s technical quality review system across all sectors of work, including checklists, day-to-day procedures, peer reviews, as well as a lessons-learned component that ensures our team continually learns and develops.
“Our QC process is paramount to our project delivery process and built in to our culture,” says Megan Rhind, Associate, Technical Board member, and QC Committee member. “We want to go the extra mile for our clients, and that means continually striving to deliver the best for them.”

Technical Enrichment Through Learning
The fourth pillar of our commitment to technical excellence at Entuitive is our continual pursuit of technical enrichment for all our team members. We offer a variety of training opportunities so our engineers and technologists can stay at the forefront of uncompromising performance.
From lunch and learns, internal and external training, as well as participating in research and sitting on industry committees, our team is committed to lifelong learning in pursuit of engineering excellence.

Our formal Commitment to Technical Excellence is a rigorous set of standards that we apply to ourselves in order to deliver the uncompromising performance our clients expect. We understand that we are better together, and this commitment ensures each project has the collective knowledge and excellence of our team behind it.
