Tino Isola is the Vice President of Dredging and Surveys at Fraser River Pile & Dredge in New Westminster.
In 1989, Tino graduated with a diploma of technology in civil engineering from the British Columbia Institute of Technology, and has worked in the dredging industry for 30 years. During his tenure at FRPD he has been involved in all aspects of the dredging program from hydrographic surveying, dredging navigation systems, estimating, and project management.
Tino is very proud to be a long serving employee with FRPD and was privileged to being part of the team to win two major long-term contract awards of the channel maintenance dredging program. The first being 1999 lasting to 2012, and then the current contract starting in 2012 and running through to 2022 and possibly longer. In addition to the Fraser River channel maintenance work, Tino was also involved in the Deltaport expansion projects, and many of the larger sand supply projects in the Lower Mainland.
