Since our founding in 1955 by Dr. Giovanni Lombardi, our journey in the field of engineering has been marked by continuous growth and evolution. Today, Lombardi is a global leader in engineering services, with a particular focus on hydraulic works and transport infrastructure. Our expertise spans the entire project life cycle, from initial design through to operation, and it's our enduring partnerships with clients that ensure successful project completion.
Our growth over the years has been driven by consolidating our presence in traditional markets and continually seeking innovative solutions that optimize project costs without compromising quality. Maintaining absolute independence from contractors, suppliers, and other consultants is a core principle of Lombardi. All our shareholders are actively involved in the operative management of the Group's companies, ensuring maximum commitment and flexibility to meet market demands. In the early years of the company, Dr. Giovanni Lombardi made significant contributions to pioneering projects in Canada. These projects included the preliminary study for the Kemano-Kitimat Arch Dam in British Columbia, the rehabilitation of the Mactaquac Dam and Power Station in New Brunswick, and consultancy for the rehabilitation of the Multiple-Arch Dam of Daniel-Johnson in Quebeca and various dams and hydroelectric power plants for ALCAN (now Rio Tinto Energy). Additionally, he served as a board expert for the James Bay Hydropower complex in Quebec.
In more recent years Lombardi was involved in the dam safety assessment of Thirsk Dam in British Columbia and ICOLD Benchmark of the Beauharnois Dam in Quebec.
Lombardi is now present in Canada with offices in Montreal and Toronto, ready to support and collaborate on visionary projects that align with Canadian energy goals.
