About Us


The history of a company says a lot about the quality of its work.

SML Consultants Ltd. was founded in 1994 by Scott Lecy. Along the way, we maintained our uncompromising reputation for quality, and developed a toolbox of talents and skills that helped us rise to a level that the largest companies in the world now seek and find valuable. In 2003, Scott and Richard Tucker formed the current partnership - SML Consultants Group Ltd.

SML started with one employee, and have now grown to a team of eight experts who design and produce extremely demanding and complex solutions for companies like Shoppers Drug Mart and Subway among others.

Every year we design more than 120 commercial, retail, light industrial and institutional projects. Our goal has never been to be the biggest, or to manage all types of projects...but we always strive to be the best.

We have very clear plans for the path we follow and our direction. We know our strengths, as well as our limits, and always match our expertise to the project, not the other way around. It has always been a matter of capability and fit.
