Austin Engineering is proud to announce it has been awarded the honour of best engineering company in the Kootenays for the second year in a row.

The Trail, B.C. firm received the Platinum Award in the Kootenay Business Best of Business 2019 Engineering Company category.

“We are so grateful for this award,” says Mary Austin, Director of Business Development. “We have felt such tremendous support from our customers, colleagues in the industry, and the community as a whole. Our team is highly skilled, dedicated, and take great pride in their work so it means so much for them to be recognized.”

Mary was also previously acknowledged in Kootenay Business magazine’s 2016 Most Influential Women in Business feature.

The Best of Business award is based on reader responses to a survey published in the magazine’s January/February issue. Kootenay Business received over 14,000 nominations this year from its readers, who selected their favourite businesses in the East and West Kootenays.

Austin Engineering was established in 2014, and with hard work and dedication the company grew into a multiple award-winning engineering firm. The company specializes in hydrotechnical, dam safety, structural and geotechnical engineering services, providing solutions to its clientele across the province and beyond.

The thriving business expanded its operations this year, requiring a new location to house its growing team and services.

“Approaching six years in business and close to 1,000 successful projects completed is an accomplishment beyond our expectations,” says Principal Engineer Roger Austin. “Our team values the relationships we have built with our clients. We are a diverse group of professionals who take pride in delivering responsive, practical, and high-quality engineering. Special thanks to our community and supporters – we are proud to offer exceptional engineering solutions and are grateful to support our customers’ project goals.”
