History

Our Story.

Pinchin West was founded in 1984 and we have been providing Environmental, Health and Safety consulting and engineering services to clients throughout Western Canada for almost 30 years.


Started by our President and CEO, John Holland, Pinchin West began as an Asbestos Abatement consulting firm with one office in Vancouver. Since then it has grown to nine locations and over one hundred staff throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. Our projects have taken us to Australia, the United States, Great Britain, Ireland, Trinidad, Malaysia and Chile.


Our company has grown over the past three decades but our commitment to Service, Integrity and Excellence continues to be our defining principles.


We have evolved our professional services to include, Environmental Management , Hazardous Materials Management, Mould, Occupational Health and Safety, Remediation and Reclamation, Building Science & Sustainability, Geotechnical Engineering, Energy Managment, LEED Construction Support, and Training services.


In 2003, the Pinchin West Foundation was formed. The program was developed to provide volunteer support and financial contributions to employee led charitable and community projects. The program supports charitable programs and companies throughout Western Canada and is an integral part of our Social Sustainability efforts.


We have managed many projects over the years that were unique, politically sensitive, time critical and technically challenging. Our clients rely on our specific expertise, knowledge, guidance and integrity and execution to enhance their environmental health and safety performance.


Some of our clients have been using us for over 25 years. The work we do with its impact on health and the environment makes us care. It is our relationship with our clients and well being of their stakeholders what separates us and makes Pinchin West different.


We could not have become who we are without the staff, contractors, suppliers and clients who have committed to trusting and working with us. As we strive to offer new services and grow our company, we will continue to keep our clients, staff and community interests at the forefront of our efforts.
