Teal Jones Group has closed its Sandspit office and is operating out of headquarters in Surrey. John Pichugin, manager of engineering and forestry, says the company still has between 12 and 15 employees on the seniority list, but these people are all laid off for now. Teal Jones also maintains a small satellite office for field engineering out of a residence in the community. He says the company plans to operate in Sandspit sporadically, “but we just don’t know the timeline.”Meanwhile, real estate opportunities in Sandspit have been made available on the company website. The company owns several houses and lots in Sandspit and several undeveloped pieces of land on Graham Island.
