Kickstart Your Career with a Co-Op Placement at iSPAN!

In recent years, cold-formed steel framing has experienced a resurgence, popping up everywhere from small apartment buildings to 15-storey condominiums. Its ever-growing popularity could be attributed to its many advantages over other building materials like wood and concrete.

As students in competitive architectural technology and engineering programs, you’re passionate about building sound, durable, sustainable, and visually appealing structures, and you want to make a difference in your community. Through a co-op placement with iSPAN Systems, you can do all this and more.

Why work at iSPAN?

We provide an enriching and challenging environment where you can develop your skills and receive professional support. You can also see firsthand how your efforts impact the company’s growth, the client’s satisfaction, and the advancement of the community.

“If you’re looking for a job where you can see the impact that you have on a growing company, then I would say that iSPAN is a company that you should be interested in applying to,” said Owen Henry, an iSPAN Systems Project Coordinator.

During your co-op placement, you can get in on the ground floor and help fuel iSPAN’s growth. “What’s interesting about iSPAN is we’re a relatively new company,” said Forklift Operator Mike Groulx. “Each quarter, we seem to surpass the previous one, so it’s really exciting to see what we’re going to do in the future.”

And, you’ll have an opportunity to participate in a truly enjoyable and satisfying work experience. “We’re like a big family,” said Anne Dooley, an iSPAN materials handler. “It’s a great place to work. Everybody’s helpful and considerate and just hardworking people, and it’s a great environment to be in on a day-to-day basis.”
