We are Kerr Wood Leidal. Since 1975, we've been providing water infrastructure engineering services for builders, developers, and resource companies, from government to industry and First Nations. We've made significant contributions to some of BC's most well-known projects, from various Olympic venues to municipal infrastructure and resource projects.

Our expertise is water, in all its implications for engineering projects—from water supply and resources, to wastewater treatment and stormwater management, water-based power generation and the many aspects of water that can affect land development

From the beginning, it has been our vision to be the most successful and respected water infrastructure engineering company in Western Canada—and in the eyes of many of our clients we continue to achieve that on every project.

We apply the most advanced modeling and data-collection and management technologies, and combine those approaches with the knowledge that comes from decades of experience. From the most preliminary surveys and feasibility studies, to master planning, computer modeling, construction services and project management, you can trust KWL for results that are innovative, practical and sustainable.

With over 35 years of engineering excellence under our belts, our track record speaks for itself.

Our clients appreciate our deep knowledge of local conditions and regulations, as well as our enthusiastic and fresh approach to complex engineering problems. Our solutions are tempered by the reliability of our consistent leadership and a rich history of mission-critical innovation. Because we're employee owned, our commitment to excellence goes far beyond the run of the mill. Our success is a direct function of our clients' success.

While other companies struggle to maintain their teams, we at KWL have grown because of our teams. We attract and recruit the brightest minds in the industry, and retain only those who flourish in a collaborative engineering environment that continually raises the bar and sets new standards of excellence.

From feasibility studies to master planning, computer modeling, construction services and project management, you can trust KWL to do more than any individual's best effort. Our team delivers results that are innovative, practical and sustainable. It's in our nature. With over 35 years of engineering excellence under our belts, our track record speaks for itself.

Our vision is to be the most successful and respected water infrastructure engineering company in Western Canada. While success can mean many things, we know we're respected by our peers, and more importantly, by our clients. How do we know? Because they tell us.

When they come back again and again, they say how easy we are to work with, how we collaborate with their teams to make their jobs easier and help their projects advance. And when it comes to the particularly difficult assignments—the ones that are technically challenging and require innovative approaches and complex thinking—they don't even think about anyone else. They trust us to do the job, and do it well.
