Terrace company joins with Stantec in a deal closed today, Nov. 28.

A LOCAL environmental services consulting company has a new owner.

Stantec closed the deal to buy Cambria Gordon today, Nov. 28.

Dave Gordon, co-owner and senior biologist at Cambria Gordon, said the deal came about as his company and Stantec had worked together closely and realized they shared the same vision and values as a community-oriented organization.

A major benefit of joining Stantec is the opportunity to be more involved in large-scale projects, he said.

“I’m thrilled to work with Stantec,” said Gordon, adding all the Cambria Gordon staff remains with the company.

He added that includes him as he and co-owner and president Linda Zurkirchen will continue to be there and work together.

Bob Seager, senior vice-president for environmental services at Stantec, said the deal came about as the company is working with a lot of bigger clients supporting the LNG and pipeline projects and was using Cambria Gordon biologists working in the area.

“We came to realize their values were consistent with our own,” said Seager, adding Stantec likes to be present in the communities it works in.

“And I’m delighted to say we closed the deal with Cambria Gordon today.”

Although Stantec is working with projects here that have public opposition to them, the company is not advocating any of those projects, just providing the best science it can so the best techniques and procedures can be put into place in those projects, he said.

In its announcement of the deal, Stantec said the 25 person team at Cambria Gordon was joining Stantec’s 350 person environmental services team in B.C.

Cambria Gordon will remain as the company name for the next few months.
