“I’m a lighting designer at SMP Engineering. I’m working on the West Eau Claire Pathway, amongst other things. Our office is just above Peppino on Kensington Road.

I can’t believe how many corporate offices are in Kensington. It’s great working down here, knowing you’re not just a corporate drone walking in and amongst the office towers downtown. You can actually get to know your maintenance person in your building.

I like that Kensington is a community. Just this morning on the way to work I had a wonderful conversation with a lady walking her dog. I don’t know her name, but was a nice chat. You feel like you have a place in this community, no matter who you are–you’re not just here to do your job.” Ian, Lighting Designer, SMP Engineering.
