What is your role at Valard Geomatics?

Survey Crew Chief         

If you could switch your job with anyone else within Valard Geomatics, whose job would you want

I wouldn’t change a thing to be honest. I get to work in places that most people will never see alongside an exceptional group of surveyors all working together to get the job done. It’s great.

What has been your favourite project at Valard Geomatics?

I have had the pleasure of working on two very different but equally rewarding projects over my 2 years at Valard Geomatics;

The I1K 230kv line in Northern Saskatchewan was a transmission line in the Canadian Shield that required a variety of survey support, anything from staking structure locations, as built of existing and new facilities, to precise layout of foundations working directly with construction.  At its peak it was the largest helicopter supported project in North America

Currently, I am working out of Terrace BC to complete the boundary survey of the NTL Transmission line.  This project has taken me to some of the most geographically breathtaking areas I’ve ever been to and pushes me both mentally and physically every day. Searching for and finding Survey evidence set in 1912 has been a definite highlight.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?

Purav Halvadia (One of our Project Managers)

If you could meet anyone in the world dead or alive who would it be and why?

That’s easy, I would play golf with Bill Murray, no explanation needed.

If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?

Hammock, Axe, Guitar
