Consulting Engineering Design and Environmental Science

CBCL Limited is an acknowledged leader in the provision of engineering, environmental planning, analytical studies and design services in Atlantic Canada and beyond. With 60 years of service to our communities, we have established an enviable record of excellence in project management, design and project implementation when it comes to the application of sustainable design practices.

We recognize that respect for the environment and our future requires a holistic view of project challenges that incorporates the insights and experiences of all the project stakeholders.
