Infrastructure magazine

The Depths — A refreshing infrastructure magazine narrated by Dolir the deep-sea explorer 

The Depths is CPCS’s annual magazine that shows what we’re all about as a company and as CPCSers

Let Dolir guide you through our magazine while discovering our company beliefs that we call DEEPER IF.

The Depths also features some of the most memorable impacts we enabled in 2020.

We hope you enjoy the magazine. Send us questions and comments at communications@cpcs.ca

Why read this magazine?

We have a good story to tell. As a team, we enable positive economic, social and environmental impacts by providing evidence-based management consulting service to infrastructure leaders. This publication underscores some of our impacts and the people making them happen. 

Who is this magazine for?

Anyone who shares our passion for enabling positive impacts through infrastructure advisory work in all its forms. It’s for CPCSers, future CPCSers, partners, clients and the infrastructure community at large.

Why tell the world about our DEEPER IF beliefs?

They’re fundamental to how we operate. They’re why we show up to work. They act as a compass when making decisions and in our day-to-day activities. We’re not shy about showing what we’re all about and wish to
attract others who share our beliefs. 

Our strategy is all about depth. What do we mean by “depth”?

It means deepening our knowledge, experience, tools and network in our sectors of transport, power, public-private partnerships and related analytics. In short, it means going “deeper” in our infrastructure ecosystem. Like a deep-sea diver descending to the ocean floor, we strive to explore the uncharted dimensions of our specializations.

Our work focuses on the market “in the middle.” What does this mean?

On one end of the infrastructure consulting market spectrum are large technical engineering and planning firms. On the other are large accounting and management consulting firms. Our focus is on the market in-between where clients and projects need the combination of technical depth AND deep management insights.

What’s the deal with the deep-sea diver character?

Dolir is an explorer of the depths. Dolir is a fictional character who seeks to capture what we’re all about and to tell our story. Why? For fun. And because we wanted to be the first management consulting firm in the infrastructure sector with a mascot.
