Aspect Structural Engineers
101-190 West 3rd Ave
Adam is a Principal with Aspect Structural Engineers. He has a breadth of hands-on and technical experience, which is largely unique in the field of structural engineering. Prior to and throughout his degree in civil engineering from the University of British Columbia, he gained experience in the design and construction of timber structures as a carpenter, foreman, estimator, and structural EIT. This enables him to view projects from the perspective of designers, builders, and managers, assisting him in creating cost-effective, constructible, and efficient solutions. Adam is also a certified Passive House Consultant.
Adam returned to the University of British Columbia where he earned a Master’s degree in structural and earthquake engineering. His research focused on the development of timber-concrete composite technology and vibration performance of floors. His work in this area sought to identify high-performance and low-cost connection technology and compare their performance across several mass timber products. The test programme was the largest of its kind and demonstrated the safety, viability, and opportunity for the further implementation of the technology in Canada and around the world.
Adam’s engineering experience covers a wide variety of unique and complex structures utilizing different materials. He is currently Engineer of Record on two unique recreational projects: Malahat Skywalk, nearing completion in Bamberton, BC; and the Sky Spiral at Sea-to-Sky Gondola in Squamish, BC, currently in design.
