About Us

We are problem solvers:

Need a design changed to avoid a riparian area? Groundwater higher than expected? Our team is solutions focused and appreciate that site conditions require responsive and adaptable thinking.

We leverage the latest tools and knowledge:

The steel hand probe, a geotechnical staple, still has its purpose, but we leverage the industry's latest tools and best thinking. Our goal is bring the highest quality specialty equipment to our projects on Vancouver Island.

We make drawings:

Every other engineering discipline draws their solutions because its the most effective way to present technical designs. Geotechnical engineers are known for reports; we write those too, but when faced with a complex problem, we draw.

We make designs that you can build:

We make sure that our solutions can be built by considering methodology and collaborating with the folks who construct our projects.
