TTES Consulting Inc. was formed by Jeff and April Tait in May 2004 and incorporated in 2007. Jeff’s career in the construction industry began in 1988; April’s in 1993. In the beginning Jeff and April operated a small aggregate lab, designed parking lots and roadways, performed construction layout, assisted contractors with estimates and quantities, and even painted lines on parking lots and streets.
Things changed in 2007 with a large construction layout and quantities earthworks project for MLA Northern on the Red River Floodway. MLA Northern had purchased Trimble GPS machine control and TTES Consulting Inc. was charged with creating the models and keeping the machines functioning to optimum performance. TTES Consulting Inc. had no choice but to become local experts as the technology was new to the region. Other contractors on the floodway took note and were purchasing GPS machine control units as well. Soon more contractors were added to the TTES client list and the company began to grow in size and recognition.
In 2014 Jeff became aware that a highly skilled technologist by the name of Scott Craig was actively looking for work. Jeff and Scott had worked well together on the Circle Drive project in Saskatoon a few years earlier and were both eager to work together again. The “job interview” resulted in the creation of a sister company called Survcon Geomatics Inc. that operates out of Saskatoon. www.survcon.ca
