Aldea Services continues to strengthen senior team 25 Jul 2019

Aldea Services Inc. News Release

Aldea Services Inc. has appointed Wayne Warburton as Principal/Senior Tunnel Engineer to be based at its Atlanta office in the USA. With more than two decades of engineering experience, Warburton is experienced in the fields of rock engineering, underground excavation, and field engineering during construction. One of his first projects for Aldea Service Inc. will be the Atlanta Airport tunnel.

With extensive hard rock tunneling experience, Warburton is well suited to join the specialised team of engineers and geologists at Aldea Services. He has been involved in major projects throughout the USA, Canada, South Korea, and the Philippines, but counts the South River Tunnel Project in Atlanta among his favourites.

“I got to work with a great team of people and to see it through from beginning to end,” said Warburton. “It was a great experience to start as project manager during the design and then stay on as resident engineer through construction”.

Since its formation eight years ago, Aldea Services Inc., which until February of this year operated as Aldea Services LLC, has been involved in some of the most challenging underground projects in the USA, including:

  • Los Angeles metro (Crenshaw, Purple Line Phases 2 and 3)
  • Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program
  • California Water Fix
  • DC Water Clean Water Program
  • Rebecca Street sewer project, Toronto, Ontario
  • OARS CSO project, Columbus, Ohio

In addition to the change in name, Aldea Services also announced a new leadership team in February with Robert Goodfellow promoted to President and Paul Headland promoted to Senior Vice President. Christian Maguire was appointed Construction Management Director. The company structure remains the same, however, as does its network of offices around the US and Canada.

“While there may be a slight change to our name and logo, we will remain the same company from an operational perspective,” said Headland.

Maguire joins the company with more than 30 years of tunneling experience around the globe and in a range of construction techniques, including NATM, TBM, EPBM, drill+blast, cut and cover, and directional drilling in both soft ground and hard rock environments. He was a project manager for TBM construction on the US$11 billion Riyadh metro project and worked as a construction manager for the Qatar metro, which had as many as 22 TBMs in operation. Other project experience includes tunnels for Taiwan high speed rail, Singapore metro, Malaysia LRT, Doha metro, Dubai DSST, and the Channel Tunnel.
