About The Odan/Detech Group Inc.

The Odan/Detech Group Inc. was formed in June of 1992 by the amalgamation of The Odan Corporation (which was formed in 1985) and Detech Engineering (which was formed in 1988). The Odan Corporation was a Consulting Engineering firm, originally based in Stoney Creek. Odan’s expertise in engineering was primarily in the Civil and Structural fields, which encompassed Marine Engineering, Stormwater management, hydraulic structures, subdivision design, water distribution design and wastewater treatment design. Detech Engineering was also a Consulting Engineering firm based in Toronto. Detech’s expertise in engineering was focused in the Structural and Building Sciences fields. Building Sciences is comprised of Roofing, Cladding, Parking Structures, Thermographic Studies, Air/Vapour Retarders, Technical Audits and Project Management.

Historical projects have earned us a presence in Europe, Croatia specifically, parts of the United States of America and various provinces in Canada.

The Odan/Detech Group Inc. is currently stationed in Burlington, Ontario and projects can be found in the local region, province-wide as well as across the country.

We continue to seek new opportunities to demonstrate our knowledge and expertise. Please take a look at our current projects to see what we are presently working on.
