SASKATOON, Saskatchewan – WARDROP ENGINEERING’s David Kelly, P.Eng., was recently awarded the prestigious honour of being named "Engineer of the Year" by the SASKATOON ENGINEERING SOCIETY. The award recognizes a Saskatoon-area engineer for outstanding contribution in the field of engineering. Kelly has been a driving force on a number of key mining projects in the province over the years. As manager of projects for Wardrop’s Mining Division, he is currently leading a 45-person design team on a multi-million dollar expansion project in the potash industry.
Kelly received his degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan and has always been committed to developing a strong and sustainable consulting engineering industry in the province. His career as a consulting engineer includes establishing an engineering firm at an early age and later purchasing an equity interest in another company that focused on the mining industry. That company’s operations and staff were ultimately merged with Wardrop in 2004. Kelly actively participates in a number of professional organizations and charities.
Wardrop is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, pointing to its excellent customer service as one reason for its success. The company was founded in 1955 to undertake public works and build housing subdivisions in Manitoba. Today it is an employee-owned international consulting firm offering integrated engineering, environmental, information technology and business solutions in 42 countries around the globe.
