Our founder Brian Brownlee, P.Eng., began his career as a structural engineer with Crosier Kilgour and Partners in the late 1970s. Within a few short years Brian was Managing Engineer in charge of the Saskatoon office. Through the 1980s, many successful projects were completed, and many relationships were developed based on the quality structural engineering services provided to many varied clients. Brian created Brownlee Engineering Ltd. in 1987 when Crosier Kilgour & Partners departed from Saskatoon.
Brownlee Beaton Kreke (Saskatoon) Ltd. was formed in 1988 to take advantage of an opportunity to maximize our firm's presence in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba. Brownlee Engineering Ltd. of Saskatoon and Beaton Kreke Structural Engineers of Regina formally agreed to share and leverage structural engineering experience and expertise. As a result, Brownlee Beaton Kreke (Saskatoon) Ltd. and Brownlee Beaton Kreke (Regina) Ltd. were founded as two separate firms in June 1988.
In February 2018, Brownlee Beaton Kreke (Saskatoon) Ltd. officially changed their name to BBK Engineering Saskatoon Ltd., to mark the start of the next chapter in our firm's story.
