Structural Engineer/Project Manager
“A project achieves its greatest success when special attention is paid to the smallest details.”
Bryan was born and raised in the town of Kimberley BC in the east Kootenays. The year before he joined the faculty of civil engineering at the University of Alberta, Bryan took a job as a carpenter framer working on a residential development in his home town. He knew that getting your hands dirty on the construction site and gaining knowledge from experienced trades people would make him a well-rounded, “practical” engineer.
While studying at the University of Alberta Bryan’s passion for structures continued to grow especially in framed structures. After graduating, and spending half a year backpacking Australia, Bryan began his career as an engineer in the spring of 2011 with MMP. Since then, the scale and complexity of his projects has increased rapidly. Typically he is involved at all stages of the project, from the beginning of design development to the completion of construction.
Bryan’s current duties include designing and preparing working drawings besides the required coordination necessary during phases of the project. Domain of his project portfolio ranges from custom single family residences to multi-building, multi-storey condominium style developments to commercial buildings including numerous senior and assisted living projects.
Attention to detail and experience with current wood frame construction practices allows him to produce acculturate and detailed working documents while meeting challenging deadlines. Due to his intensive involvement in all aspects of the projects he is capable of rapid turnaround on shop drawings, RFI, site instructions, etc.
Bryan makes special effort to establish healthy working relationships and open lines of communication between all consultants and contractors to allow for the best coordination and overall execution of projects.
Being a passionate outdoorsman, he spends his spare time doing a variety of activities including: Skiing, stand-up paddle boarding, rock climbing and fly fishing. He even prefers to tie his own flies. His favorite pastime is motorcycles and in the fall of 2015 he rode from Calgary to the Arctic Circle and back.
