Chris Drielsma, P.Geo

I grew up in a small northern town and saw the importance of natural resources to the economy. I always enjoyed science and wanted to find a career that allowed me to practice science, work outdoors and travel. While I work at a desk now, I really enjoy my job and our fantastic clients, who invite us into their unique projects, in various parts of the world, to assist with solving interesting problems.....what more could one ask for??!

What we do best is help our clients gain detailed knowledge of their property. Whether it’s related to geotechnical, structural, geophysical, or hydrogeological information, we offer them cost-effective, turn-key solutions. What I love most about DGI is the people -- we have such a great team, with so much knowledge and enthusiasm it really is a pleasure to work with my colleagues.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and two young children. We have been renovating our 150-year-old house for the last 2.5 years and while it is a labor of love, I am looking forward to it being complete!
