We offer objective work to a wide range of forest management to forestry companies of all sizes and government organizations. Our Registered Professional Foresters and Registered Forest Technologists have extensive experience throughout the province and provide services based on strong fundamentals in forestry operations and field engineering. Our Forestry team is completely integrated with our Engineering and GIS and Mapping Department to deliver seamless service to our clients.
We also provide Urban Forestry and Arboriculture Consulting Services for private and corporate clients in both urban and urban interface environments. Through tree inventories and forest management plans, Chartwell’s Arboriculture consulting services can add value to properties by increasing site safety and aesthetics, while providing the information needed to make calculated risk management decisions and accurate budget plans.
UTILITIES & ENERGY
Our Project Managers have the knowledge and experience in developing and maintaining utility systems in a complex environment. We are experts in the management of multiple land use issues over public and private lands so we can anticipate potential setbacks in order to avoid cost and schedule constraints.
We also have extensive expertise in acquiring and utilizing LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) data. LiDAR is an essential technology in the planning, development, construction and management of resource projects. Our Engineers, Foresters and resource professionals pride themselves on being able to use this technology to provide cost effective solutions to clients.
We have established working relationships with professional service providers including geoscientists, engineers, wildlife biologists, fisheries biologists, archaeologists, timber harvesting and road building firms which allow us to provide a full suite of services for utility and energy resource planning. Our team is committed to working closely with our clients to provide tailored products or service solutions to meet the unique demands of each project.
At Chartwell, we know that First Nations require forestry services that are the highest of quality and which also reflect their cultural and traditional values. We strive to build strong partnerships with the First Nations rather than simply provide a service. We believe it’s important to recognize the cultural importance of First Nation traditional territories, which allows us to build relationships through respect, trust, and character. We are currently participating in forestry development, full solution mapping, and capacity building with various First Nations groups in British Columbia, and continuing to foster connections with log marketing firms to assist in the selling of timber.
Chartwell provides functional, real world solutions to the communications sector. We provide services that include: asset inventory and mapping, road maintenance planning, repair tracking, and environmental review. We prepare License of Occupation and Licence to Cut applications. We can provide site reviews for development feasibility of new projects. Our involvement with the communications industry has grown through the development of landPLANNER™, our powerful web mapping tool and data collection program.
