Vanoco Consulting was started by Derek Rae, P.Eng. in 2008.

With offices in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and Denver, Colorado in the USA, Vanoco positioned itself to be a leader in consulting to geothermal, mining and oil and gas.
The merger to form Codeco –Vanoco Engineering Inc. became a reality primarily because of parallels in company values, people, work ethic and a desire to be the best. The combination of the two companies allows us to strengthen the team, reduce costs, ultimately adding value to our existing and potential client base.
