Cameron joined the structural engineering team in our Edmonton studio in 2011 before moving east to pursue his PhD at the University of Toronto. After completing his studies on the effects of blast loading on tubular steel, he returned to work with us, this time in our Toronto studio. In addition to work in protective design, Cameron has led projects across a wide range of sectors, including healthcare, institutional, government, and retail.

A keen problem solver, Cameron always strives to find the right solution to any problem. Drawing from his background in architectural training and years spent as a high-level athlete, he is a long-time believer in the power of an integrated, team-first approach to finding optimal structural solutions.

Cameron’s technical proficiency has been recognized through numerous academic awards, including the Government of Canada’s prestigious Vanier Graduate Scholarship.

Cameron brings dynamism and a passion for structural engineering to all of his projects. He is continually inspired by groundbreaking structures and the engineers that designed them. Cameron is committed to working with you to find a solution that not only meets your needs but also has a meaningful, long-term impact on the community at large.

I'm driven by the desire to pursue knowledge and grow as a structural engineer. I want to be the guy people go to to answer the difficult questions.
