EllisDon Named 2018 Corporate Academic Citizen of the Year

On Wednesday November 14th, EllisDon was awarded the 2018 Corporate Academic Citizen of the Year by the University of Toronto Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering. This award was given to EllisDon for its ongoing work and commitment to the development of a Carbon Accounting Tool with researchers at the university. In addition to this project, EllisDon’s own Chris Andrews was mentioned as a key member of the Civil Engineering Industry Advisory Board and has also taught within the department – also lending to the reason EllisDon was chosen for this award.

In its first year, the University of Toronto has recognized that the Carbon Accounting Tool project has had a significant impact on the training of highly qualified personelle and has provided invaluable support to the team through investment, personnel time, and access to construction sites and through facilitating key connections to other partners involved in the Carbon Impact Initiative.
