Staff in our Calgary office
As 2022 draws to a close, we reflect on the initiatives we introduced and the accomplishments we achieved during yet another busy, exciting, and successful year for our company.
This year, Associated Engineering established our Indigenous Commitment to improve our understanding of Indigenous history, culture, and values; build positive relationships with Indigenous Peoples; and take action to advance reconciliation. We have been holding regular webinars to raise our Indigenous awareness. On September 30, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we engaged Chrystal Tabobandung, founder of RAISE, who provided a moving presentation on Indigenous history and culture, and how we can all be allies and partners in reconciliation.
In November, we were honoured with five awards at the annual Canadian Consulting Engineering / Association of Consulting Engineering Companies - Canada (ACEC) Awards. We received Awards of Excellence for the Wanuskewin Heritage Park Renewal-Bison Management & Care Facilities in Saskatoon, Crowchild Trail Bow River Bridge Interchange Rehabilitation & Widening project in Calgary, and the Blatchford Neighbourhood District Energy System in Edmonton. The Blatchford project also received the Tree for Life award, recognizing the project’s outstanding environmental stewardship. Congratulations to our project teams! These awards are a testament to your innovation and technical excellence. Congratulations also to Tia Hill who received the A.D. Williams Scholarship! This award is bestowed to a young professional for their efforts to advance the consulting engineering industry.
As President & CEO, I have the privilege of traveling across the country and meeting our clients and partners, who have shared their perspectives and feedback with me. Your insights are important and help to inform and improve our projects and project delivery. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our clients for your trust in us as your consultant and advisor.
Wherever my travels take me, I am proud to see the passion and commitment that our staff have to our clients and projects. As a result of your dedication, we have had another strong year at Associated. Thank you for your service and creativity – it’s what differentiates us.
To all our clients, partners, friends, staff, and your families: we wish you a very joyous holiday season and a healthy and happy new year!
