The 2016 Association of Consulting Engineering Companies - Saskatchewan (ACEC-SK) Young Professional Award recipient is Kyle Cator, P.Eng.

Kyle Cator is a Geotechnical Professional Engineer with Golder Associates Ltd. (Golder). Prior to obtaining his bachelor's degree in civil engineering, Kyle worked as a laboratory technician in Golder's Saskatoon laboratory for the summer of 2007 and 2008. Following graduating from the University of Saskatchewan with his B. Sc. in Civil Engineering in 2009 Kyle joined Golder as a permanent employee.

Kyle has worked on a number of mining, transportation and geotechnical engineering projects since then, and has advanced into a project manager role with Golder. His work experience has included materials testing (both in the field and lab), geotechnical investigations, collection and interpretation of data from on-site geotechnical instrumentation,  on-site construction monitoring of large earthworks projects, detailed design of large earthworks projects, geotechnical inspections of tailings area structures, numerical modeling of seepage and slope stability, contract administration, and project management.  

In order to provide the safest and highest quality of work for clients, Kyle has taken several training courses since leaving university. Kyle understands the positive correlation between continuous professional improvement and education.
