At the age of sixteen, Rahim Ahmad, a Civil Engineer in our Saskatoon office, moved from Surrey, BC to Warman, SK, which at the time was Canada’s fastest-growing municipality. In Warman, Rahim’s passion for engineering and construction blossomed. Watching the community develop had a significant impact on Rahim.
Since completing his engineering degree and joining the company in 2013, Rahim has worked on a diverse portfolio of municipal and industrial projects, including subdivision developments, raw water intakes, lift stations, water treatment plants, lagoons, and landfills. He takes pride in cultivating relationships with clients and colleagues, and believes that nurturing these relationships is critical to successful project delivery. It was this people-first attitude that also helped Rahim successfully fulfill his role as the Acting Manager of our Fort McMurray office, a role he undertook from August 2020 to March 2021.
Rahim is also passionate about serving the community. Since returning to Saskatoon earlier this year, Rahim has volunteered with the Saskatoon Open Door Society, an organization that helps newcomers to Saskatoon connect, integrate, and build strong reciprocal relationships within the community. Rahim was recently elected to their Board of Directors and is serving a two-year term from June 2021 to June 2023.
This summer, Rahim joined the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association for a blood donation drive and helped distribute water and snacks to the vulnerable during a July heatwave in Saskatoon.
When not working or volunteering, Rahim spends time with his wife, Alia, and daughter, Shaista. Together, they enjoy evenings and weekends exploring different walking trails in and around Saskatoon.
Thank you, Rahim, for helping to shape our shared future!
