Terracon and our employees have always believed in being part of, and giving back to, the communities in which we live and work. This December our employees seized the opportunity to help a local charity in Fort McMurray. Through a 50/50 draw and donations the employees raised over $1,000 as well as various toys and canned goods for Santa’s Anonymous. Santa’s Anonymous is a community charity run by the students of Father Mercredi High School in Fort McMurray, Alberta. The goal of the charity is to provide each family in need with a traditional Christmas dinner and toys for each child. Support for infants and seniors is also available when indicated by the family. In it’s 30th year of operation, Santa’s Anonymous has helped more than 15,000 families and in excess of 51,000 people have a very merry Christmas.
Terracon is proud to help support such a worthy cause and would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season!
Terracon held its official Grand Opening of their new Corporate office at 400-800 5th Ave. Calgary AB today.

Terracon welcomes all their clients and vendors to visit them at their new location. For a map and directions contact us!
While the first days of fall are behind us, Terracon has jumped into Winter and is on the ice at the Fort McMurray Casman Center. Terracon’s newest ad board is officially up and has the best view in the house when the Oil Barons take on the rest of the AJHL in the 2014/15 season. Terracon is very excited to continue its support for minor hockey and for the Oil Barons as they look to bring home the 2015 “Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup“.
Good luck to all the players, coaches, parents and fans with the 2014/15 season!
In an effort to continue to grow our Southern Alberta operations and better serve our current and future client’s, Terracon’s head office is moving locations.
We will remain in Calgary’s booming downtown core but will be operating from the Trimac House at 800, 5th Avenue SW, Calgary Alberta. We are excited to be spreading out and occupying the entire 4th floor of the building. Although our address is changing there will be no interruption in our services and short of our mailing address, all other contact information will remain the same. We look forward to seeing both new and familiar faces as you visit us at our new corporate office. Please update your records to reflect our new address as of September 24, 2014: Suite 400 – 800 5th Ave SW, Calgary AB, T2P 3T6

The Calgary South facility will add to our existing operations from where we have successfully served clients in the fields of Civil and Geotechnical Engineering, Geology, Construction Monitoring and Materials Testing Services, for over 30 years.
