Brown and Caldwell, an environmental engineering and construction firm, opened a new, permanent office in the metro Vancouver area to serve clients in the region’s municipal and private water and wastewater sector.

“This new office aligns with our vision of expanding full-service solutions in the Lower Mainland while continuing our legacy of solving metro Vancouver’s most complex water and environmental challenges,” said Brown and Caldwell Vancouver Local Leader Bryan Paulson.

Brown and Caldwell’s history in the Lower Mainland dates back more than 60 years, including the development of Vancouver’s original sewerage plan, the Rawn Report, in 1953. In the decades since, the firm has delivered planning and engineering services on many of Vancouver’s most complex wastewater challenges. Projects include the design of the original Lions Gate Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and the Iona Island WWTP in addition to numerous upgrades at the Annacis Island and Lulu Island WWTPs.

“Our local and established team is committed to leaving a positive impact on the community as the region continues to prepare for population growth, regulatory changes, and climate and seismic risks," said Brown and Caldwell Canada Leader Mike Thorstenson.
