Simcoe Toyota Just Got Bigger!


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.

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 time to thank Mark Martynowicz and Yvonne Martin for their many years of dedication and hard work here at G. Douglas Vallee Ltd. and wish them both the very best on their retirement.

Mark Martynowicz, the 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 & Secondary schools with the BHNCDSB and GEDSB; Fire Stations/EMS stations ranging from as close as Norfolk County and as far as Township of Severn; various medical facilities such as hospitals, medical centers, and dental offices; and extensive industrial facilities such as Toyotetsu and Unilever. Mark was a valuable asset to our team, and his experience, ability, and knowledge will be greatly missed. Congratulations, Mark, on your retirement, and we wish you the very best as you begin your new adventure. 

Yvonne Martin started with G. Douglas Vallee Ltd. in 1998 out on Park Road, where Vallee once had their office. Her job ranged from helping the Technicians out in the field doing fieldwork to completing accounting and HR responsibilities, but as the company expanded, Yvonne stepped out of the field and focused on Finance and HR. She continued with that for many years and, in 2021, decided it was time for her retirement. She was a woman that wore many hats while at Vallee and will be greatly missed. Congratulations, Yvonne, on your retirement, and we wish you the vest best as you begin your new adventure. 


From the Staff at Vallee Architects, Engineers and Planners, we would like you wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The office will be closed Friday, December 24th, 2021 and resuming business hours Monday, January 3, 2022 remotely.

Should there be an emergency, please call:

Have a safe and Happy Holiday!
