At Stratum Logics, we are global geotechnical engineering design specialists who are exceptionally proficient in the deployment of cutting-edge geosynthetics for civil engineering across 75 countries.

Unique &
Challenging Projects

Stratum’s designs provide effective solutions for geotechnical engineering projects faced with regionally unique soil and climate challenges in the Oil & Gas, Forestry, Mining, Energy and Alternative Energy industries.

Research &
Development

As global specialists in geosynthetics and the development of innovative civil engineering technologies, we bring new geoengineering possibilities to the future of sustainable transportation and municipal infrastructure.

Geocell Technology

Our structural designs incorporate cutting-edge geosynthetic reinforcement, enabling us to deliver long lasting, low-maintenance roads and work site pads, as well as designs and solutions to dramatically increase geotechnical engineering slope stability.

Markets Served

Oil & Gas

Stratum Logics’ engineers provide unique and cost-effective solutions for access roads, pads, yards, crossings, ground and slope stabilization for worksites situated in remote, inaccessible areas and on difficult or impassable terrain.

Mining

Stratum Logics designs reliable temporary/permanent haul roads that preserve tire and equipment life, and offer environmentally safe solutions for drainage, channel protection, and liquid containment needs for settling or tailings ponds in operations where increasing geotechnical engineering slope stability and site rehabilitation is critical.

Logging &
Forestry

Stratum’s engineers design optimum solutions for constructing durable, recyclable high-traffic haul roads, access roads, lease roads, storage and lay-down yards for seasonal/remote applications where reduced environmental impact and quick restoration is desirable.

Wind, Solar &
Hydroelectric

Stratum Logics excels in the design of geotechnical engineering solutions to support the development of conventional and alternative energy projects requiring specialized load-bearing and lifespan considerations.

Airports

Stratum’s geotechnical engineering capabilities are uniquely suited for the construction of airports and runways that must support heavy dynamic loading while building on marginal land and soils.

Ports

Our civil and geotechnical engineering specialists utilize cutting-edge geosynthetic technologies to construct safer and more durable transportation hubs that will meet the long-term demands of heavy multimodal shipping loads.

Rail

Stratum-designed railways exhibit superior load-bearing capabilities due to reinforced ballast and sub-ballast layers that increase durability and efficiency of railways, allowing them to sustain heavier loads, attain faster track speeds and require substantially less maintenance.

Public Civil
Infrastructure

Stratum’s civil and geotechnical engineering teams excel in the construction of cost-effective, long-lasting roadways, highways and earth structures engineered for slope stability that are low-maintenance and sustainable as our changing world looks toward a green future.

Experience That Matters

As an industry-leading geotechnical company, Stratum Logics has assembled a unique team of some of the most highly-accredited civil engineers, geotechnical engineering experts and EPCM professionals in the world. With global expertise and over 100 years of combined experience, the Stratum Logics geotechnical engineering team offers innovative solutions for project owners, EPCM companies and their EPC contractors to meet and overcome today’s construction challenges, with the right materials, design and vision for every project.

MEG ENERGY ACCESS ROAD PROJECT DATE: AUGUST, 2012

MEG Energy, a major upstream oil and gas company, tested Stratum Logics with the construction of a 3.5km x 8.0m access road. The client knew that the conventional construction methods used by the oil and gas industry would fail because the ground was virtually entirely muskeg with a CBR= < 1.0. As the EPCM firm in charge of the turn-key project, Stratum Logics had to design and build the road as cost effectively as possible. Stratum Logics knew they could mitigate the need to import costly aggregates by applying advanced geosynthetics. In fact, adoption of the NPA geocell technology allowed Stratum to beat all the challenges set by MEG Energy. In the end, the unpaved access road was built in just 40 days using sand in the subbase and base layers and a thin layer of aggregate for the wearing course.

SUNCOR- STRATUM NOMINATION FOR SUNCOR PRESIDENT'S OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE AWARD

In 2015, Suncor Energy Inc. nominated Stratum for their President's Operational Excellence Awards (POEA) for Stratum's unique design and innovative solution employing NPA geocells to cross Fort Creek with "zero environmental impact, minimal regulatory involvement and a whole bunch of other advantages.”

Mammoet Overhead Crane Pad Project Date: January, 2014

Stratum Logics’ know-how and experience in designing load-bearing structures in extreme environments were called upon to design Barsi Enterprises’ rail yard project. Advanced geosynthetics; NPA geocells were employed to stablize the ground for the new Mammoet heavy-lift crane at the CN Rail yard in Egremont.

Canfor Wood Products | Mel Jones, Plant Manager

“This is the third year since our NPA Geocell installation was completed in our log deck and yard storage areas. These are high traffic areas that tend to drive the winter frost very deep. The system continues to maintain its integrity during spring thaw allowing continued usage and access to all inventories with no disruptions to our production process. We are extremely pleased with its performance and cost savings”.
For many years the Canfor’s Fort St. John mill battled extreme muddy and contaminated soil conditions. As a result, 988 Cat mobile loaders were unable to transfer logs to the mill during spring and fall seasons resulting in disruptions to lumber production. Stratum engineered, designed and supervised construction of a turn-key soil reinforcement solution for Canfor's log yard storage and transfer areas.
The multi-million dollar project eliminated all downtime related to soil conditions affecting log supply; improving mill production, employee morale, safety and reducing mobile equipment operating costs. Estimated cost savings exceed $1.0M/year.

FPInnovations | Papa M. Thiam, P. Eng., M.Sc. Researcher, Roads and Infrastructure

"During summer 2015, I visited the Canfor Mill in Fort Saint-John, BC, to gain an understanding of the mechanical behavior of the NPA (Neoloy) geocell reinforced structures. Under the supervision of Wayne Hotte, yard supervisor for Canfor, I met with Mark Stuckey of Stratum Logics (Engineering Design and Construction Supervision) and Derek Breault Paradox Access Solutions, (Installation Contractor) to identify the drainage systems, choice of materials, layer thicknesses for the structures, NPA geocell design and installation process.
This visit was very successful as the perforated NPA geocell is a very interesting product for many road engineering practices, specifically in areas where access to decent construction materials and/or weak subgrades can be a challenge. The sub structure bearing capacity seemed to have increased tremendously and the drainage systems seemed to be working quite well."
