About Us

Based in Calgary

Ralph Dokter, Rick Jacobsen, and Ron Grover co-founded Cornerstone Engineering in January of 2008. Prior to that, they each had 15+ years of experience working for oil and gas producers and engineering companies. Their experience has granted them a first-hand understanding of the priorities of oil and gas companies when undertaking a project. This insight has shaped Cornerstone’s focus on excellent communication and customer service throughout each project’s execution.

Cornerstone has now grown to become a team of over 90 people and has complete civil, electrical, process, and drafting design services for all sizes of oil and gas projects.
