Graduated from the University of Alberta in 1979

Geoff is a senior mechanical engineer responsible for developing institutional and sustainable projects including complete mechanical design project management, design execution through to construction services, and site inspections. His background has provided a wide range of experience in design and construction, as well as project management, for a large number of institutional projects. He also acts as a technical reviewer for the APEGBC to assist in the ongoing review process currently being conducted on all practicing professional engineers in the Province of British Columbia. He specializes in very low semi-passive building systems including radiant cooling, displacement ventilation and high performance building envelope design. He has been practicing as a consulting building services design engineer for over 32 years, and is a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited professional

Geoff is also the author of a number of papers and articles covering radiant cooling systems, in-slab radiant systems, displacement ventilation systems and other sustainable building approaches. His paper “Applied Radiant Cooling and Displacement Ventilation” was selected as one of the 15 “Best of Austin” papers presented at the First Annual USGBC Green Building Conference in Austin, Texas in November 2002. An article covering “Underfloor and Displacement Ventilation” has been published in the July, 2003 issue of ASHRAE Journal. He also keeps in regular touch with the few other North American designers who are designing and building thermo-active slab systems and radiant cooling systems to maintain an informal information sharing network.
