About Us

Pioneering responsible solutions to complex earth science challenges

BGC Engineering is an international consulting firm that provides professional services in applied earth sciences. Our practice was established in 1990, based on a specialized appreciation of the impacts of geology on engineered structures. This appreciation continues to serve as our foundation today as we work to address a broad range of engineering and environmental issues related to challenging terrain and ground conditions.  

Over 700 professional engineers, geoscientists, technicians, and support staff provide a full range of investigation, design, and construction review services in the applied earth sciences. We currently operate from more than 16 offices across North and South America, Australia, and the Caribbean.

BGC’s projects range from pre-feasibility-level studies and routing evaluations to detailed design, construction inspection, and independent third-party review. We also provide services supporting and coordinating environmental impact studies, permitting, and financial agency review. As a complement to our consulting services, BGC operates a state-of-the-art soil and rock testing laboratory, offering a range of advanced geotechnical testing services to our clients. 

BGC is a private, employee-owned company proud of its Canadian roots and founded by Dr. Iain Bruce and Dr. Wayne Savigny. Although we are spread across offices, we work together as one team, coordinating our staff and integrating our technical disciplines. This approach gives our clients access to all BGC’s resources and allows us to assemble the best team for each and every project, regardless of the project location. We are committed to one-to-one communication between our staff and our clients, to understanding our client’s needs and goals, and to service their projects with high-quality work delivered on time.
