Project Manager

Andrew oversees all aspects of the projects he works on, from determining client needs, budgeting and scheduling, and team management. He holds a Bachelor of Engineering from the University of New Brunswick, is a certified P. Eng in New Brunswick and Ontario, and has his Mix Design Technology Certification for the Asphalt Institute and a Certificate of Proficiency in the Pile Driver Analyzer (PDA) System.


Most recently, Andrew worked on the 2021 Gardiner Express annual maintenance closure, during which crews worked consecutive 24 hour days over a single weekend in July to ensure the project was completed in time for 140,000 daily vehicles to take this important route into downtown Toronto. On this job, Andrew was able to demonstrate the lengths he’ll go to accommodate a client’s needs, and deliver fast and safe results.


It may come as no surprise that Andrew is an avid triathlete, because he brings the same determination and work ethic to his professional pursuits. The growth he’s seen from AllRock is exciting to him, as well as the nose-to-the-grindstone culture fostered by a close-knit team of coworkers who he knows will make sure he never stops learning!

Scott Allen is the founder of AllRock Consulting Ltd. from Corner Brook, Newfoundland, on the territory of the Qalipu Mi’kmaq. He is a proud member of the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation. Scott provides project management support for AllRock clients and team members in Newfoundland and Toronto. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Geotechnical Engineering from the University of New Brunswick, Scott is a professional engineer with OPEG and PEGNL who sits on the board of the Heavy Civil Association of Newfoundland & Labrador.


Of all the projects Scott has worked on, he’s most proud of the development of the Corner Brook Acute Care Hospital, where he faced challenges managing the geotechnical and third party testing scope for what proved to be a massive project. He was also able to work with North American construction leader PCL/Marco. But most significantly, the completion of this project provided critical care and cancer treatment for the residents of the West Coast of Newfoundland, and for his own hometown of Corner Brook. Scott’s clients know he understands the challenges faced by the construction industry; the crew’s time is valuable, and he prides himself on accessibility and communicability with clients to ensure reports and results are delivered in a timely manner.


In his free time, Scott goes hunting and fishing on his land, and enjoys hockey, golf, NFL Sundays, reading books on business, and being with family. But his greatest passion is his company. He founded AllRock to challenge the existing culture of the geotechnical and materials industry, which he perceived to be lacking in the customer experience and reliable service. He built a team of vibrant and client-minded professionals who value a fun and fast-paced working environment. AllRock is a rapidly growing company with a bright future, and Scott believes strongly that it will soon become a model for best safety, fiscal, and client relations practices in the industry.
