David Symes

Senior Planner

Calgary, Alberta

David’s job is akin to assembling a jigsaw puzzle. As a senior planner and project manager with the community development team, he first looks at a project and foresees what the end result will look like. From there, he fits all aspects of the development process together—understanding the different sites and piecing it together with the right technical experts. He is also a specialist in project delivery and management integrated service.

David’s international work experience in Australia, Asia, and North America—in a variety of sectors—has provided him with an understanding of how success is achieved on different projects with different people. The lessons learned have allowed him to gauge what’s needed for a comprehensive plan, and his open mindset and ability to source the appropriate talent brings a fresh perspective for his clients.

An outdoor enthusiast, David enjoys the energetic lifestyle that Calgary is known for—most of his time is spent outside mountain biking and photographing the nature that surrounds him.
