John is Principal and Senior Building Engineer in the firm and has been practicing structural engineering for over forty-five years. His experience in structural engineering encompasses projects of many different construction types, functions, and project size and complexity. John’s depth of knowledge in structural systems and keen interest in new technologies and systems make him a valuable resource to the projects in which he is involved.

John’s design expertise includes new construction, modernizations and expansions, assessments, sign structures, shoring, and fall arrest.

John served as principal for the firm’s largest construction value project to date, the Edmonton New Remand Centre. The $568 million dollar project presented unique structural challenges such as poor soil conditions which led to the use of continuous flight auger (CFA) piles on the project. The project was one of the first to use the technology, which at the time was new to the Alberta market.
