  Be patient—opportunities frequently arise when you least expect them

Thomas Schaefer

Senior Principal, Community Development Engineering

Edmonton, Alberta

Engaging his team and his clients, striving to develop and improve relationships—these opportunities are what brings Thomas to work every day. With his background in economics and engineering, and 19-plus years of experience managing people and projects, he knows a thing or two about building relationships in the industry.

Thomas works with clients to create and update long-range planning and budgeting for land holdings. He coaches his team to tune in to clients’ needs and to achieve project milestones in planning, engineering, and construction. His most notable projects include Edmonton’s Summerside Neighborhood Development, Southeast Lands Development, and Blatchford Redevelopment. The opportunity to see how a project unfolds and how a community comes to life in a new or revitalized neighborhood makes work truly rewarding for him.

A native Edmontonian, Thomas, his wife, and their two children enjoy the city year-round: “There’s always something to do in each of our distinct seasons.”
