Our full-service geotechnical team offers materials testing, hazmat assessments, inspections, and design that mitigate risks and improve any structure’s performance.

Our History

Our company was founded as Lewkowich Geotechnical Engineering Ltd. (LGE) in 1994.

Based out of Central Vancouver Island, our goal was to provide specialized geotechnical services to the surrounding region. As our company grew, we expanded our borders to service the Gulf Islands and the Sunshine Coast.

In 2008, Lewkowich Engineering Associates Ltd. (LEA) was formed to facilitate the acquisition of Johnston Gray Environmental. Our services evolved to include environmental, industrial hygiene, and occupational safety services.

Today, we continue to provide exceptional geotechnical engineering, materials testing, and hazard assessments.

With permanent offices in Nanaimo and Courtenay, we’re a full-time team of administration & support staff, technicians, technologists, industrial hygienists, environmental scientists, professional engineers, and professional geoscientists.
