Atlantic Canada – Opening
April 30, 2014
Origin and Cause is excited to announce the opening of our new Halifax office — the Grand Opening will be on May 12, 2014! The new office will allow us to expand our services to better serve our Atlantic Canada clients. This comes at an exciting time for Origin and Cause as we prepare to launch our new brand and website (coming soon!).
The new office will be led by Jim O’Donnell, who has worked with Origin and Cause for the seven years. Throughout his career, Jim has conducted over 400 investigations relating to fires and explosions for both Origin and Cause and the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office prior to joining our team. Specializing in structural fires and explosions, his areas of expertise include fire scene assessment and examination, origin and cause determination, and proper fire scene exhibit handling.
As the nation’s largest consulting forensic engineering and fire investigation firm, Origin and Cause is Canada’s trusted leader in providing cross-disciplinary forensic expertise to insurance companies, law firms, independent adjusting firms, manufacturers and corporate risk managers. For over 20 years, our highly-skilled team of engineers and investigators have combined education and training with years of hands-on experience to deliver quality service in all aspects of forensic engineering.
Though widely known for our expertise in fire and explosion investigation, Origin and Cause is a full service provider offering a range of expertise across all disciplines of forensic engineering. This includes:
- Fire and Explosion Investigation
- Structural Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Chemical Engineering

I will be in Halifax mid-May with Jim and we look forward to meeting clients and building new relationships with prospective clients. If you would like to meet to learn more about our services, please contact me or Jim to schedule a time to do so.
