Announcing our New Branch Office to serve Drayton Valley and Area!

Building on our long history of working in the area, we are excited to announce that Challenger has opened a new Branch Office to service Drayton Valley and area. Employing several staff members from the former Baseline Geomatics, our Drayton Valley team will continue to deliver responsive local service backed by Challenger’s breadth of experience and resources.

Robert Cream, ALS, CLS, CST, a long-time Professional Land Surveyor with Challenger with over 30 years of survey experience has been appointed Branch Manager of our Drayton Valley Office. Rob previously spent 12 years living and working in Drayton Valley and brings his extensive experience and expertise in legal and construction surveys to the Branch.

Kevin Laiss has been appointed General Manager of our Drayton Valley Office. Kevin is a Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) graduate with over 30 years of survey experience. Drayton Valley is home for Kevin, where he was previously the President of local firm Baseline Geomatics for 26 years. Kevin’s survey experience spans many sectors from subdivisions and condominium developments, residential and commercial RPRs and construction surveys, to oilfield projects including wellsites, pipelines and integrity digs. In his free time Kevin is an avid golfer and enjoys landscaping his property in the country.

Our new Drayton Valley Office will enhance Challenger’s network of Branches to support the survey needs of the West-Central Alberta region, including the local municipal survey market, as well as ongoing resource development in the area such as oil & gas exploration, production, and distribution activity. Our new Branch will deliver a full range of survey, geomatics, mapping, and engineering services, with the same focus on service, quality and safety that our clients have come to expect from Challenger.

Our new Branch Office is located in the former Baseline Geomatics building at 5141 – 54th Street in Drayton Valley, Alberta. Feel free to stop by if you’re in the area. Kevin, Rob and the rest of the Drayton Valley team can be contacted by phone at 780-515-8440, or by email at draytonvalley@challengergeomatics.com for survey requests, employment inquiries, or any other questions.
