After over a decade as a key player in first the oil sector, then the real estate industry, the organization, with its growing service offering and brand portfolio, wanted to create a single, major brand. Discover the important role growth plays at Nvira in this interview with President and CEO Louis-Gabriel Bouchard.
WHERE DID YOU GET THE IDEA TO EMBARK ON THIS ADVENTURE WITH NVIRA?
In 2009, after working for a major oil company for several years, I finally decided to take the plunge and create the business. I had only one mission in mind when I started the company: to offer integrated, personalized solutions within a single organization, to our clients from the real estate, commercial, industrial and oil sectors. This goal is where our story begins!
WHAT DOES THIS NEW OFFER ACTUALLY COMPRISE?
Nvira brings together four lines of business that help us meet our clients’ various needs, in Quebec and in neighbouring provinces. Our multidisciplinary team is made up of professionals with extensive, recognized experience in a variety of industries, so we can act as project managers and consultants for our clients.
Each of our four lines of business has its own, complementary expertise. That way, we can continue to meet our clients’ needs as they change.
Environmental assessment, characterization and rehabilitation; characterization of natural environments and landscape architecture
Design, construction and specialized maintenance
Soil and materials
Geotechnical, materials engineering and testing laboratory
Hygiene, health and safety
Industrial hygiene, air quality, and safe and healthy work environment
The synergy between our lines of business combined with our teams’ agility enable us to offer high quality services and help our clients find effective, sustainable solutions. With our main mission in mind—to offer a range of integrated, personalized solutions—we provide our clients with the chance to collaborate with a single team of experts committed to successfully carrying out each project.
WHAT’S THE COMMON THREAD AMONG ALL THE TEAMS?
Our position as experts in environmental solutions denotes not only our organization’s values, but also the mission and vision that drive us on a daily basis.
This position perfectly reflects the values of excellence and progress that encourage our teams of experts to go above and beyond and offer quality services through their commitment. Our solutions are also perfectly integrated and adapted to today’s and tomorrow’s environment. Moreover, for every project we carry out, we are mindful of our surrounding environment, so that it can continue to meet everyone’s needs and not compromise those of future generations.
WHAT PART DOES GROWTH PLAY IN THE ORGANIZATION?
It’s very simple: the status quo is never an option to us. Because progress is one of the values we cherish most, it comes as no surprise that we are constantly growing our service offering by adding new expertise to our various lines of business and by leveraging our teams’ knowledge.
At Nvira, growth occurs through collaboration between our various teams of experts to support our clients throughout their projects, by offering them a complete range of environmental solutions.
