Company Experience

Scouten Engineering has been providing professional engineering and technical support services to our clients throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Newfoundland, Northwest Territories and Nunavut since 1995.

Our experience in the delivery of professional engineering and related technical services and our approach to all of our engineering service agreements can be summarized as follows:

We know what we are.

We’re a relatively small firm (of less than 20 employees) committed to the delivery of exceptional engineering services. We don’t pretend to be a company of 1000 employees, because we’re not

We know who we are.

We’re a group of like-minded, enthusiastic and extremely well-trained individuals committed to living and working in northern BC. We raise our families here and have a vested interest in the economic development and diversification of northern BC.

We know what we can do.

We’ve taken on projects as small as can be imagined and other projects much larger than can expected from a firm of our size. We have complete confidence in our abilities but know our limitations so we collaborate with larger engineering colleagues when required.

We know what our clients expect.

We’ve seen clients disappointed in the service they’ve received from other much larger, but geographically remote consultants and advisors. We know that our clients in north-central BC and northwestern Alberta expect and deserve timely and effective professional service.

We know who our clients are.

We’ve come to know our clients as more than billing numbers, or abstract names on revenue forecasts. We consistently treat our clients as human beings, also living and working in northern BC, with whom we can build meaningful, long-term professional relationships.

Our approach to all of our projects is simple – provide consistently excellent engineering advice and ‘product’ (including drawings, technical specifications and other documents) on time and on budget.

Scouten and staff have been excellent to deal with and provide professional and timely information. Cost saving “outside the box” ideas from Scouten have saved us time and money and assisted in the successful completion of three major projects in BC and Alberta.
