It’s been a decade since Eric Peterson, President & CEO, started working with clients in Calgary, following the devastation of the 2013 Calgary floods. It wasn’t long before Albert Ng, Partner, joined from the Vancouver office to head up the Calgary Branch!
We took some time out with Albert and Andy Bakshi, Manager – Calgary,
to reflect on the last 10 years in Calgary…
Albert, tells us, how did operations commence once you made the move to Calgary?
Eric and I started as a two person operation out of 1078 6th Avenue SW. As we grew into a five person team we moved again before settling into 535 10th Avenue at the Hudson Building, where Andy Bakshi and Eric Fung joined our team. Today you can find us in the hip, inner-city Mission District of Calgary. A new office space we moved into in 2023 as we flourised into a team of seven.
Wow, the team really has grown! Andy, who do you have on board today?
Alongside myself, leading the Calgary Branch, we have Albert Ng – Partner, and a technical team consisting of Neville Fleming – Project Manager, Dilkamal Soni – Technical Delivery Coordinator and Kyle Yin – Technical Delivery Coordinator. We also have the talented Dayna Andersen – Proposal Coordinator, flying the admin flag out of the Calgary office.
Sounds like a full house! We know you initially focused on Inspection work, tell us, what departments are in operation today?
As our client relationships broadened in Alberta, we now have very active New Construction, Modernizations, Maintenance Management, and Inspection departments. We are also an Accredited Agency with the Safety Codes Council for performing regulatory safety inspections.
Fantastic – your steady organic growth is showing! How will you celebrate 10 years in Calgary?
We plan to mark the occasion at our 2024 Stampede kick-off Client Appreciation Party! Stay tuned for an invite…
