Today is Inertia's ninth anniversary.
At the beginning of 2006, Trent Letwiniuk, Stephen Barnecut and Paul Shannon were all working at Jager/AlanRidge homes, and Calgary was booming. Builders couldn't build the homes as fast as they could sell them, and that was especially the case with AlanRidge. Things were going a bit sideways are work, and we were each being approached by colleagues desperate for help with their residential design.
So the three of us agreed to meet at Denny's before work on Monday, January 30th. It didn't take long before we had agreed to start our own firm. But before breakfast was done, Stephen expressed his concern that if we didn't get moving right away, then inertia would be against us, and we needed to have inertia on our side.
Before the day was out, we had gone to the registry and registered Inertia.
