ST. JOHN'S, June 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Golder Associates Ltd. has recently reestablished permanent offices in St. John's and Halifax to better serve its clients throughout Atlantic Canada.
Golder Associates, a Canadian, employee-owned engineering, consulting, design, and construction services firm, has a history in the region dating back over 30 years. The company has been involved in many of Atlantic Canada's most significant projects in the oil and gas, mining, real estate, and power sectors. Golder's priorities have remained the same - providing its clients global expertise on local onshore and offshore environmental, geotechnical and oceanographic projects.
"Golder Associates is excited to have a second office in Newfoundland and Labrador. We're involved with a number of projects here and our offices in Labrador City, and now here in St. John's, will allow us to provide enhanced support to our clients," says Bill Cavers, Senior Geotechnical Engineer in St. John's. "We are committed to the long term growth of these offices and with the help of staff drawn from the region I think there is a bright future for us here."
Golder's regional office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia shares this same optimism. "We have a great history here. We've helped our clients search for Captain Kidd's gold in Oak Island and helped develop major mining projects in base metals, gold, potash, salt and iron ore mines in the area," says Scott Conrod, Operations Manager for Golder's Atlantic Canada region.
"Our staff developed conceptual models of the Confederation Bridge link between PEI and NB over 30 years ago and then more recently assisted with the actual construction management of the geotechnical aspects of the final installation of the project. We've been involved in the offshore oil and gas industry in Canada for many years and our clients want our services as they now search in deep water and the Arctic but with environmentally sustainable solutions."
Golder Associates, recently named as one of the "Top Ten Companies to Work For" in 2012 by the Financial Post and one of "Canada's Top 50 Best Managed Companies" by the National Post, is adding staff in both Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
"We are actively seeking people who want to grow their careers on unique Golder projects that most cannot access elsewhere," explains Conrod. "We are looking for experts to help us service our mining, oil and gas and power sector clients and staff who want to help us on our journey to the next project as we help our key clients grow their business in Atlantic Canada."
