Built on Strong Science and Service
In 1989, Alan McCann and Omprakash (Om) Sukhrani amalgamated McCann & Associates and Omni Engineering to form Omni-McCann Consultants Ltd. (OMCL), an applied earth sciences, engineering and materials testing company operating out of South Edmonton. With complementary expertise and extensive experience in groundwater/engineering geology and geotechnical/materials engineering, they built a strong reputation for comprehensive geoprofessional services and sound professional advice.
Alan, a groundwater/engineering geologist, brought 20 years of geological, geotechnical and groundwater experience in Ireland and Canada as well as leadership positions at EPEC Consulting and McCann & Associates, to grow the company’s expertise in solid waste systems planning, investigation, design and implementation.
Om integrated his expertise in geotechnical and civil engineering to advise clients on projects ranging from concrete testing and asphalt reconstruction to underground utility installation, and building design and development. Om was also instrumental in establishing OMCL’s materials testing laboratory facilities.
Since its inception, OMCL’s professional engineers, geoscientists and technical staff have completed numerous public and private-sector projects, mainly in Alberta. As a result, it developed expertise not only in waste management, but also in due diligence for property transactions and development, regulatory compliance, and remediation design and implementation.
Having established a range of field and lab capabilities, the company is well equipped to sample, test and monitor water quality, landfill gas and landfill leachate, as well as conduct site surveys, measure soil compaction and oversee the quality assurance for geotextiles, leachate collection systems together with compacted clay and geosynthetic liners.
The company’s considerable list of long-standing monitoring contracts and repeat customers is a testament to OMCL’s employees who, for 30 years, have dedicated themselves to ensuring they meet the highest standards of integrity and client service.
A New Era – The Same Commitment
In September 2019, OMCL transitioned to Omni-McCann Geoscience. While under new management, the company remains committed to offering the same comprehensive geoprofessional offerings and innovative, personalized service that its clients have come to expect.
