SPECIALISTS IN LAND DEVELOPMENT
Veritas Development Solutions is an independent consulting engineering firm that specializes in the design of site services, site grading and stormwater management. Established in 2003, we provide local expertise on Development Site Servicing Packages and Project Management for residential and commercial development. We take pride in our ability to adapt to any project challenges, while providing cost effective solutions to our clients’ needs.
Veritas has cultivated strong professional relationships with our clients, as well as approving authorities such as the City of Calgary where our focus has been on the design and approval of development site servicing.
