Al-Terra’s company growth and staff development

Al-Terra Engineering Ltd. is pleased to announce an exciting transition within our firm as we appoint Brittany Sutherland, P.Eng. as our Manager of Site Development, as she takes over from Glen Thoman, M.A.Sc., P.Eng. who stepped into the role of General Manager of our Calgary office in November 2022.

Brittany Sutherland, P.Eng. joined Al-Terra in 2013 following her graduation from the civil engineering program at the University of Alberta. Prior to joining the company on a permanent basis, Brittany also completed two 8-month co-op placements with the firm.

Brittany has steadily advanced in her career, gaining valuable experience and increased responsibility through her work in the areas of land development, transportation, and site development. Most recently, Brittany’s work has been focused on the site development team, which has been demonstrated by her involvement as a key team member with two recently awarded projects at the Red Deer Hospital. Her leadership skills and strengths have been proven through her approach to project management and execution, and will be valuable as she takes on the role of Manager of Site Development in Edmonton.

Glen Thoman, M.A.Sc., P.Eng. has been with Al-Terra since 2006 and has 30 years of experience in land and site development, and water resource engineering. He brings strong management skills and a deep understanding of our firm’s values as he leads our new Calgary operations. Glen has evolved into a trusted partner on multi-discipline projects with clients, architects and subconsultants, and his dedication to project excellence has been recognized through industry awards.

Although Glen’s focus has shifted to the Calgary operation, he will continue to provide senior support and mentorship to Brittany in her new role.

Al-Terra has been proudly serving the evolving needs of public and private sector clients with engineering, planning and design solutions since 1976.
