Our Story

From humble beginnings sparked by a night of oysters and scotch, to a thriving business of over 150 employees – each milestone in 360’s journey has been an integral part of our history and has better enabled us to fulfill our purpose and mission.

our story

Building a 100 Year Business

360 was incorporated in 2015 to support companies with engineering and environmental consulting services and has evolved over the years to support a variety of industries at all stages of their lifecycles.

As regulations, laws, standards, and technologies have changed through the years, we have continually evolved our strategies and guidance – and this has helped our clients navigate complex engineering and environmental projects, remain compliant with relevant regulations, decrease their operating costs, and reduce risk. 

Each decision, acquisition, office opening, and milestone has shaped who we are today, and we are proud of our story so far. Below is a timeline which has established the foundation to building a 100 Year Business.
