“If [a project] has challenging work in terms of how to staff, or if it is technically or geographically challenging, that’s where we come in,” says Smith. “We look at problems to find solutions, and we bring our whole team together to do so. This has led to some amazing opportunities for us. [For instance] how many times do you get to fly in and out of Chad, Africa?”

And that’s just one example of the unique and interesting work Stratus takes on. “Sometimes our work brings us out into the mountains or working on the hydro dams,” says Smith, noting those projects also allow for some unique fishing on the river banks.
