Momentum Transport Consultancy, the London-based integrated transport consultancy, has today announced its launch into the Canadian market.
Momentum Canada will provide transport consultancy services, including building operations modelling, highway studies, transport masterplanning and pedestrian studies to architects, planning consultants and developers in Canadian cities.
The new company, based in Montreal, will be headed by Amelie Cosse. Amelie spent nearly four years at Momentum’s London office, contributing to the growth of the company in a number of key sectors such as commercial, cultural and heritage and education, whilst playing a key role in leading transport strategies for major developments and projects including 1 Leadenhall, the Imperial War Museum (IWM) Duxford and the LSE Centre Buildings Redevelopment.
Amelie Cosse said:
“Canada’s urban landscape and desire to explore a change in how their vast cities and towns are designed is truly exciting; especially the notion of making the transition away from the car. I’m most excited about being heavily involved in projects that will seek to transform and maximise how public and shared spaces are used across Montreal and further afield. This could start through conversations revolving around urban logistics.”
Roy McGowan, managing director at Momentum said:
“Since our establishment nearly six years ago, Momentum has gone from strength to strength. We have an extremely talented and enthusiastic team of transport planners, engineers and analysts who are passionate about a shared vision to improve the environments we live, work and play in. Our ability and reputation to design and create spaces for people has seen us work on some of the most exciting schemes across the world. We’re looking forward to learning more about Montreal, the challenges and opportunities the Canadian market presents and how our team can apply its expertise to these projects.”
