What We’ve Done
We began as a civil engineering firm in 1969, but have grown into much more. Though we remain experts at civic infrastructure, we now have a wide range of disciplines, from offices in northern, central, and southern BC. If you have driven in British Columbia, used tap water or visited a regional park or sports field, you have engaged with our work. We work in communities all over BC and across Canada, offering construction services and highway engineering, traffic planning, land development, urban landscape architecture, parks and recreation facilities, project management, geomatics and land surveying services. We have partnered with every city in the Lower Mainland and regional districts across Vancouver Island and the North – and with ports, forestry, transit and hydro. Recent projects include surveyor for the Evergreen Line, and manager for the Philip Avenue Overpass. Whether we’re working on a road, a park or a hospital, we see beyond the engineering to the communities that will use them – now and well into the future.
What We Care About
We do everything with an eye on a bigger picture – building better, lasting communities. Whether engaging with government or industry, we are a strong partner with a broad vision. We contribute to local charities with the same vision.
We invest in long-term relationships – our team is an extension of yours. Communication, collaboration and integration are built into our project process. Our remote teams are fully integrated so every project makes use of the best person for the job, regardless of where they are located.
We take a long term view of any solution, considering the ongoing impact. That commitment permeates the company – from the LEED certifications earned by our staff to the workstations and equipment we choose for their energy efficiency, reusability, and recyclability.
