MWH Opens First Office in Canada

TORONTO, June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- MWH, a global provider of environmental, engineering and construction services, has opened an office in Toronto to provide services to the expanding natural resource, energy, industry and infrastructure markets in Canada.

Operating under the name MWH Canada, Inc., the office will initially focus on Ontario's hydroelectric generation development opportunities. An open-ended time and materials contract has been signed with Ontario Power Generation (OPG) for owner's representative services on current construction works for hydroelectric site rehabilitation. MWH Canada is also pursuing contracts on large-scale hydroelectric redevelopment projects for OPG in northern Ontario.

The move enhances MWH's strategy to build a stronger presence in Canada and increase the types of services offered to clients in that region. In addition, MWH's Toronto office will address a shortage of engineering resources in the face of burgeoning demand for power generation services in the Ontario area.

"Expansion of services to Canada continues to be a priority and strategic objective for MWH," said Alan Krause, president of the Natural Resources, Infrastructure and Industry division of MWH. "As our client base continues to grow, we must create the necessary footprint to best serve them. By opening an office in Canada, we are providing local resources and talent that are closely connected to our core clients around the world. This expansion also allows us to add some very talented technical staff to our MWH team and better serve our clients."

The new office, located at 295 The West Mall, Suite 203, Toronto Ontario, M9C 4Z4, is starting with six key staff members. Bill Harvey, P. Eng. will head the Toronto operations. Other staff include: Holly Hampton, PhD, P. Eng, Project Manager; Paul Read, MaSc, P. Eng, Principal Civil Engineer; Mauricio Rojas, Civil Engineer; Arnel Villanueva, C.E.T., Lead Designer; and Brenda MacNeil, Office Administrator.
