June 16, 2017

Keystone Environmental is proud to announce that Alice Kruchten was awarded the Environmental Managers Association (EMA) 2017 Emerging Professional Award last night at the Annual EMA Awards Gala.

Alice is a UBC Civil Engineering graduate who began as a co-op student at Keystone Environmental. She has advanced her professional skills from initially completing basic field monitoring tasks and data management to become a coordinator of field and engineering programs, detailed design of remedial systems and management of her own projects. In her current role, Alice works on complex design projects with multiple constraints and stakeholder inputs. She returned to UBC in 2016 to complete her Masters of Engineering Leadership (MEL) in Integrated Water Management Engineering.

Alice has been working for Keystone Environmental Ltd. for five years. She has gained knowledge in storm water management, wastewater treatment plant design, landfill cap design, remedial systems design and installation oversight, contracts and tendering, project management and scheduling, contractor supervision, client interaction and engineering design principles.

Alice has volunteered for several years with Engineers Without Borders Canada (UBC Chapter) to promote the application of engineering and leadership skills in international development to create lasting systemic change at home and abroad. She has also volunteered with the Tetra Society of North America, building custom assistive devices for persons with disabilities and mobility challenges. She was awarded the Sam Sullivan Award in 2012 for design/build of a wheelchair accessible crib.

We congratulate Alice on the recognition by her peers and look forward to being a part of her continuing professional development.
