Community

Over 55 years in our community has afforded Beairsto & Associates Engineering Ltd. (BASE) the privilege of being able to give back to our community by initiating, and participating, in a wide variety of charitable and volunteer opportunities

Base Corporate

Social & Environmental Stewardship Guiding Principles

WE GIVE BACK
Actively support education in every form; particularly in sustainable education programs designed to support the short and long term needs of local employers

WE REDUCE
We seek to reduce waste & consumption within our offices, job sites and the communities we live and work in

WE PARTICIPATE
We are committed to devoting resources toward our Guiding Principles in a measurable way and ensure we consistently improve our performance annually

WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE
We ensure we support, and partner with, organizations that are in alignment with our principles, and actively hold them accountable for their initiatives when contract renewals are considered. Suppliers and Business Partners with structured programs supporting our own Stewardship initiatives are given preferential consideration.

Like many small companies we are inundated annually with requests for donations/tickets/ other offers, promising advertising or other forms of return. While these “standard” programs are viable- BASE believes these various programs and formats provide minimal return and have a minimal impact on their various causes and our overall business strategy, and as a result, BASE has created a Time is Money program that we feel is far more effective:

We Give Back
Giving Back to Grande Prairie
Grande Prairie Chamber of Commerce
Environmental Conservation &

Sustainment Employee Program

Our people are our company’s greatest asset and in 2017 we will begin to invest in our people- not causes or programs. What drives our people will ultimately drive our organization. In addition to the obvious and standard programs such as recycling, and power reduction we turn our most powerful asset toward the things that matter to them and to BASE with our $100,000.00 “Time is Money” program

How it works:
Every BASE employee willing to donate their time toward any organization or initiative that is aligned with our Corporate, Social & Environmental Stewardship Guiding Principles is eligible to be reimbursed for up to 40 hours of their donated time.

Reimbursement format:
Paid time for the employee
Donation to their organization for the total of their donated wages (tax receipt will be required)

Environmental Conservation & Sustainment Standard Operating Guidelines

It is not uncommon for all businesses to have initiatives that improve and sustain the environment we live and work in, BASE is no exception. BASE remains dedicated to the conservation and sustainment of our Environment and as such, requires all of our offices to support the following basic operational guidelines:

Paper, toner, bottles and all other regional standards as they are available

Providing re-usable bottles/cups etc. at all locations to reduce the volume of single use items used as often as possible

Double-sided defaults (where practical and acceptable), paperless communication systems (paperless pay stubs, paperless T4’s, expense reports and internal notices and memo’s etc.), visual aid requirements for meetings that eliminate the need for printed agenda’s or handouts where practical

Light fixtures replaced with LED systems and motion sensor light switches (where appropriate) as part of a long term strategy. Computers and Printers programmed to revert to Energy Saving default modes

Paperless invoices, statements and payment systems (where clients are able to support it)

The use of iPads and other digital resources to eliminate the use of paper Field Notes, Time Sheets and other Field to Finish reporting systems. This initiative is part of a larger strategy to reduce human error throughout the data collection & transference process(s)

A 5 year plan to significantly reduce, and permanently remove the need for large drawing sets produced repeatedly for meetings and other purposes. Permanently leveraging the use of iPads, Smart/Digital Boards, and other document sharing and editing systems that generate less waste and more permanent/shareable records

All closed files stored within our organization are stored digitally and throughout the life of the project every effort is made to eliminate/scan and reduce and eliminate the use of paper. Where records are digital they are not printed unless absolutely necessary
