RAM Consulting is setting up an innovation hub in Alberta
The B.C.-based project delivery firm announced the new office and innovation hub in Calgary marks the company’s first interprovincial expansion and is expected to bring up to 200 jobs to the region over the next four years.
The Calgary office will develop, test and implement ideas intended to benefit infrastructure development. The centre in Bow Valley Square is already operating with more than 20 employees and will be supported by the expertise of Encepta Corp., which the company acquired in 2021.
In a press release RAM said it chose Alberta for its expansion in part due to the province’s “can do” attitude, which aligns with the company’s corporate culture. RAM added that the city’s affordability and availability of strong technical talent to support its diverse clients solidified the company’s decision. Invest Alberta supported RAM along the way by providing market and funding information and facilitating partner connections.
“Our mission to create vibrant communities through safe and sustainable infrastructure extends to supporting those communities through local partnerships, such as with the Women in Consulting Engineering Calgary Chapter and Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids,” said Joe DiPlacito, president of RAM. “In moving to Alberta, we are expanding our business and investing in the community.”
RAM specializes in project and construction management, multi-discipline engineering services, and quality and safety management in the transportation, telecommunications, utilities and energy sectors.
