Our roots go back to Sacré-Davey Group which was founded in 1986 in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Today Sacré-Davey has offices across Canada and the Northwest and is a trusted multi-disciplinary group of specialized engineering companies providing comprehensive services in all major disciplines and project management.

In 2006 Sacré-Davey Group International was born as the international arm of Sacré-Davey and soon after in 2007 Sacré-Davey Middle East was established to focus on the Mideast and Africa.

In 2017 both Sacré-Davey Group International and Sacré-Davey Middle East came together under the name SDV Consulting Engineers. Under the new name, the Firm adopted a distinct visual identity and launched a separate website dedicated to the markets they serve.

Our core values are simple. Great people on our team; long term relationships with clients, and a drive to deliver the above and beyond.

Although simple, our core values form the solid foundation upon which our firm is built:

  • We work relentlessly to keep building a team of great people, who hold themselves accountable to high standards of professional and business conduct.
  • We go the extra mile to create long-term relationships and strengthen them with fairness and honesty.
  • We nourish by results and firmly believe that we can only succeed by delivering projects that make us all proud.

We stand for straight ethics.

SDV has earned a reputation as an ethical firm over years of trustworthy behavior. We hold ourselves accountable for high standards of conduct, and in our everyday business we make decisions with fairness and honesty.

SDV Consulting Engineers is ISO 9001, ISO 14001 (Environmental Management), and OHSAS 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety) accredited.
