Horizon Engineering was the recipient of the 2001 Consulting Engineers of British Columbia Award of Merit for Soft Engineering for the Delta Shake and Shingle Landfill Fire Emergency Earthworks Geotechnical Instrumentation and Assessment.

Horizon was founded in 1997. Since then we have provided geotechnical engineering consulting services for over 2000 projects. Horizon's three principals:

  • Karen E. Savage, P.Eng.
  • Troy Issigonis, M.Eng., P.Eng.
  • Karim Karimzadegan, MASc, P.Eng.

are supported by a staff of 10 and augmented with specialist sub-consultants.

Horizon Engineering Inc. provides geotechnical consulting services for new construction and renovations/retrofits including geotechnical assessments comprising a subsurface investigation, laboratory testing and analyses followed by design development and drafting, report and specification preparation, field reviews during construction and, for some client-types, contract administration.

Projects for which we provide geotechnical consulting services include:

  • building foundations,
  • slope stabilization and retention systems, including foreshore development,
  • buried structures including tunnels, pipes and pump stations,
  • roads and pavements
  • excavation shoring and underpinning,
  • sediment and erosion control to meet LEED requirements,
  • stormwater management systems including site grading, site and foundation drainage and exfiltration features, and
  • septic systems (two of our professionals are designated as "Professionals for Sewerage System Regulation" by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC).

Project Management. Horizon's engineers have been key players in the design and construction process for many projects. This results in an approach to design that is practical and cost effective. The flatness of the Horizon hierarchy results in our engineers having ownership of the projects on which they consult; this, in turn, enables them to be decisive.

Client Satisfaction. Horizon emphasizes service that is tailored to a particular project. Our approach is collaborative and flexible with regard to working with clients, other consultants, and contractors in order to develop the optimal solution for a particular design challenge. We hold quality to be paramount. Horizon prides itself on providing personalized service to meet both the stated and implied needs of new and our many repeat clients.
