SLR Celebrates 20 Years in Alaska

LR International Corporation (SLR) is celebrating its 20-year anniversary – initially establishing U.S. operations in Washington State in 2000 followed with opening offices in Anchorage and Fairbanks in 2001. Throughout this time, SLR’s technical team and resources have been committed to providing responsive, technical solutions for our clients across multiple business sectors.

Originally focused on clients in the natural resource and upstream oil and gas sectors, the Alaska team has grown and expanded its compliance, permitting, emergency response and advisory expertise to cover clients in the power, infrastructure, and industry business sectors. With its team of 40 employees, SLR staff are adept at working in and understanding the environmental and regulatory complexities of working in the Arctic and cold region environments providing solutions for facility development, land development and restoration, community engagement and, increasingly, coastal management and resiliency planning at locations throughout the state.

SLR values client relationships. By focusing on the delivery of business solutions designed to address client needs, its services have steadily expanded and diversified to support clients address ongoing and emerging regulatory, reputational, and economic drivers. As an international, multidisciplinary consulting firm, the SLR team can apply expertise from its world-wide network to support Alaskan operations. These unique services available to Alaska clients include site selection and permitting, coastal resilience, water resource management, marine acoustics, public outreach and social engagement, and expertise in the broad field of environmental, social, governance (ESG).

“We are absolutely committed to our team in Alaska,” comments Kevin Rattue who established SLR’s U.S. operations in 2000. “We will further expand our services to address the needs of our Alaska clients and, in doing so, expand our technical teams in Anchorage and Fairbanks through the recruitment of the professionals with proven abilities to deliver clientfocused services.”

“Having worked in Alaska since 1990,” Rattue continued, “I have witnessed how the business needs have shifted and how operational requirements have become increasingly complex. SLR’s team has continued to support our Alaska clients through these changing times. We recognize that the Alaska market is unique and we look forward to the next twenty years and supporting clients and the community.”
