SGC is a multi-disciplinary engineering firm specializing in serving the energy and utility industry in the United States and Canada. SGC, which is a part of global-leading energy services company LR Senergy and a member of the Lloyds Register Group, uses Esri ArcGIS technology to manage project data from a variety of sources including its own surveying professionals.
SGC specializes in spatial data compilation and custom application development to give clients the tools necessary to effectively manage a project from the planning stages, to construction, to post-construction and through to operations. SGC has delivered superior GIS and data management solutions to some of the top pipeline, utility, and engineering companies throughout the United States.
The Esri award acknowledges vision, leadership, hard work, and innovative use of Esri's geographic information system (GIS) technology. The company believes the ArcGIS platform maximises its ability to integrate CAD, GPS, conventional survey, and other data formats to maximise value and decision-making across all aspects of their projects. As such, SGC has committed significant resources over the last four years to analyse and redefine workflows and build tools to optimise core survey and engineering data management processes in order to deliver the best possible data products to their clients.

At Esri, we are always deeply inspired by the passion and innovation of our users.
