On July 23, 2018, lightning stuck the Cole Shoal Lighthouse on the St. Lawrence River. The light house burnt down in 30 minutes after being on the river for 162 years. The light was known as the Five Mile Light as it was five miles West of the City of Brockville.

IN Engineering volunteered professional engineering services for the reconstruction effort of the project. As part of our mission statement we wish to give back to the community whenever possible. Our professionalism and engineering experience was recognized by the committee and local dignitaries during the fundraising campaign launch on February 15, 2019.

“Andrew is a local engineer and I can’t overstate how valuable his assistance has been. The plans, the specifications and design for the rebuild, including the 3D images on the screen, all the result of Andrew’s volunteer efforts.”
-Senator Bob Runciman, Feb 15, 2019.
