Not just an ‘Owl House’
By James Careless, Canadian Defence Review Magazine
In mythology, an owl is a wise creature. This is why engineering design firms are sometimes referred to as ‘owl houses’, because they are packed with top-quality minds developing engineered projects for their customers.
Headquartered in Ottawa with facilities in Miramichi, NB, DEW Engineering and Development certainly does enough design work to warrant this nickname. “However, in reality DEW is not an owl house, because our company name does not describe the bulk of what we do,” said Neil Hutton, DEW’s Senior Director of Capture Management.
