A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US


Omicron is one of the largest integrated development, design and construction firms in Western Canada, providing solutions to clients in the Industrial, Institutional, Building Renewal, Commercial, Retail and Residential sectors.


Omicron was established in 1998 by people who believed real estate strategists, architects, interior designers, engineers and builders could work as one unified team to deliver a better experience throughout each step of a building project. In an industry driven by antiquated practices and procedures, we continuously search for a better way of delivering projects by questioning convention and actively supporting our team through the systemic challenges of the building industry.


Omicron was borne on the idea of inclusion: actively inviting different voices to the table and ensuring all ideas are considered, enabling a meaningful process and comprehensive decision-making. Through this philosophy, we created our values and guiding principles for both ourselves and those we work with:


We spark curiosity. Bring your passion. Get involved, ask questions, and unleash your potential.


We show courage. Have the confidence to be heard. Challenge convention and be willing to be challenged.


We value respect. For ourselves, others, and our planet. Seek to include and cultivate a culture of support.


We create connections. Embrace differences and build trust. Diversity drives our innovation.


We are one. Our commitment to each other is our superpower. Together, we persevere and thrive.


Our vision is to create meaningful contributions to our communities, protect our planet, and enrich the human experience. Our mission is a better way of delivering buildings that redefines the design and construction process.


We have been a winner of Canada's Best Managed Companies program since 2009, maintaining Platinum Club member status since 2015. This program recognizes companies that implement world class business practices and create value in innovative ways.
