Underhill Vancouver Island office welcomes two new team members

Mitch and ZachBURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA | 11.02.2021 – The Underhill Group (Underhill) is delighted to announce the addition of two new team members to our Vancouver Island office. Under the leadership of Evan Wind, BCLS, our island office continues to expand rapidly.

Speaking on behalf of Underhill, Branch Manager Evan Wind said, “The addition of Mitch as an experienced Land Surveyor who has lived and worked in Victoria for over 7 years, combined with the addition of Zach to our team, we are well positioned for our continued growth on Vancouver Island.”

About Mitch Laseur, BCLS

Mitch received his Diploma of Geomatics in 2009, and his Bachelor of Technology in Geomatics in 2012 both from the British Columbia Institute of Technology. He has been surveying in British Columbia for over 10 years, with the last 7 years stationed in the beautiful Capital City of Victoria.

Mitch has substantial experience working both in the field and the office. His varied project experience includes boundary retracement, mixed-use land development, airport facilities, ports, building development, site servicing, cellular towers, deformation monitoring, and infrastructure renewal. Mitch was raised in the small town of Hope, BC and now lives in Colwood with his wife Natasha, 5-year-old son Hudson and 1 year old twins Liam and Mila. When Mitch is not surveying, he and his family enjoy travelling the island and participating in recreational sports. Mitch’s surveying career has taken him throughout beautiful British Columbia, including stints in Salmon Arm, Invermere, Kelowna, Kitimat, and more recently across Vancouver Island. Mitch would like to thank the partners of Underhill and branch manager, Evan Wind for this opportunity and looks forward to helping Evan expand Underhill Geomatics’ presence on Southern Vancouver Island.

About Zach Antonissen, LST

Zach received his Diploma in Geomatics Engineering Technology from BCIT in 2013. Soon after graduation he joined Underhill and was first paired with future Underhill partner Jon Cormier, BCLS. Within weeks of starting at Underhill, Zach found himself laser scanning conveyor systems in the basement of a grain elevator and surveying through a cathedral in downtown Vancouver. It was quite the experience!

Zach left Underhill in the summer of 2014 and moved to Alberta where he spent 6 years working in the Energy and Municipal sectors. His experience ranges from large transportation infrastructure projects to drone surveys and utility construction.

Zach was born in Edmonton, AB and raised in Victoria, BC. He recently moved back to Vancouver Island with his wife Hayley and two daughters, Willa and Wynn. When Zach is not working, he and his family are camping all over beautiful British Columbia.
