This holiday season, G. Douglas Vallee Limited decided to give back to the community by supporting local families and donating to the Salvation Army Christmas Hamper program. This program partners with community-based organizations, service groups, and churches to ensure individuals and families throughout Norfolk County are supplied with the food needed to prepare a festive Christmas meal.

 


The Salvation Army, which began its work in London, England, in 1865 by William Booth, has grown substantially since its first endeavors and continues to have such positive effects within our community. We thank all of those who are part of this organization and wish all of its members a Merry Christmas and all the best in 2023.  

COMING SOON TO THE CITY OF THOROLD 


The City of Thorold and G. Douglas Vallee Limited are excited about the upcoming build of the new 16,000-square-foot District 1 Fire Station in Thorold, Ontario. August 11, 2022, marked the groundbreaking ceremony for this event. Construction is anticipated to begin in early September of this year and is estimated to be completed by mid-2024. The facility will be Thorold’s new fire headquarters, also functioning as an Emergency Operations Centre, and will house 88 fire staff, along with 21 career and 25 volunteer firefighters.

After 32 years, the Simcoe Toyota dealership is now in the process of expanding. In February of this year, the family-run business started construction of a new dealership which will be more than double its current size. This new building, expected to be finished in August of 2023, will still have the Queensway address, just a new face. 

More details are available in this article from the Simcoe Reformer.

Waterford Trail Pedestrian Bridges has been featured as the cover story of the provincial newsletter for the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals. Our own Ryan Elliott wrote the article with the photographic cooperation of the Waterford Heritage & Agriculture Museum and local amateur photographer Joe Postill.

This cluster of four bridges (Thompson Overpass, Black Bridge, Miedema Bridge, and East Gap Bridge) form an integral part of the Shadow Lake Trail system and the revitalization of downtown Waterford. All of the bridges were proudly designed by the Structural Team at G. Douglas Vallee Limited!

We want to take this opportunity to thank Mark Martynowicz and Yvonne Martin for their many years of dedication and hard work here at G. Douglas Vallee Limited and wish them both the very best on their retirement.
 




Mark Martynowicz, Director of Architecture, has been with Vallee since 2006. Licensed by the Ontario Association of Architects, Mark brought over 35 years of design and consulting experience with him. His portfolio was impressive and recognized while working on projects such as elementary and secondary schools with the BHNCDSB and GEDSB, fire/EMS stations ranging from as close as Norfolk County and as far as Township of Severn, various medical facilities, and extensive industrial facilities, including Toyotetsu and Unilever. Mark was a valuable asset to our team and his experience, ability, and knowledge will be greatly missed. Congratulations on your retirement; we wish you the very best as you begin your new adventure. 

 




Yvonne Martin started with G. Douglas Vallee Limited in 1998 at our original Park Road office, where her job ranged from helping the technicians doing fieldwork to completing accounting and HR responsibilities. As the company expanded, Yvonne's focus turned to Finance and HR. She continued with that for many years and, in 2021, decided it was time for her retirement. She has been a woman that wore many hats while at Vallee and will be greatly missed. Congratulations on your retirement; we wish you the vest best as you begin your new adventure. 

 In December 2021, Vallee was honoured to be able to make a $5,000 donation to the Salvation Army to support their Community and Family Services and local families over the Christmas season.
