Event Recap: KPMG Site Visit

Members of the Schulich Real Estate and Infrastructure Club (SREIC) were hosted by KMPG’s Infrastructure division at their Vaughn office this past week. Our members were treated to interactive presentations given by KMPG representatives regarding the infrastructure sector as a whole, KPMG’s role in infrastructure and discussions around various projects.

Some highlights included Canadian LRTS, municipal development projects, institutional infrastructure investment and construction management. We topped the day off by going over a case study, with our students taking the first attempt at identifying key issues and then our KMPG hosts providing their inputs.

SREIC extends a special thanks to our hosts at KPMG for putting the time in to make the visit so engaging for our student members.
