About us


  • A Strong Foundation
  • A Lasting Legacy
  • A Revolutionary Approach

After more than 25 years of history, Beckingham saw an opportunity to change its business model:

  • to bring together a team of highly experienced independent technical service providers;
  • to create more opportunities for each of these individuals;
  • and for our client base, to provide easier access to this team of experts.
  • Originally established as Geographic Dynamics Corp., founded by John Beckingham in 1990
  • John’s dream was to have a consulting company that was diverse and dynamic, ever changing for both environmental and consulting needs.
  • In 2012, we changed the company name to Beckingham Environmental to honour and be inspired by John Beckingham’s legacy and what he stood for.
  • In 2017, we changed our business model to create a community of independent technical consulting experts working together.
