2021 in Review
'Tis the season for new beginnings! As we head into the new year, we wanted to look back at how SMT has evolved and grown in the past year.
SMT grew exponentially with the projects we've taken on, we got the chance to collaborate on the Vancouver Post, and it was a pleasure to contribute to the modernisation of this iconic heritage building. This was the original main regional processing facility for Canada Post, a historic landmark and important example of Vancouver's mid century architecture. It occupies a full city block, filled with retail and office space. In order to preserve the integrity of the building's historic features, as well as protect the newly renovated spaces, we installed our FutureCast automated monitoring system and used our DigiSCAN 360 to check the new roof for quality assurance. This project is still ongoing, and every time we are sent to do work it's always a pleasure seeing the progress (and the views are amazing too!). We will be posting a more in depth post on this project, so stay tuned!

It was crucial that this important landmar
