Mark’s technical skills and meticulous attention to detail make him a valuable team member.
Mark specializes in the analysis and design of high-rise lateral force resisting systems, in both steel frames and shear walls. His Master's thesis, "Seismic Resistant Pre-stressed Edge Slab-Column Connections", concentrated on supplementing code provisions for both ACI 318 and CSA 23.3 for the design procedure of edge slab-column connections in pre-stressed two-way slabs. He has co-authored two publications on this topic in the ACI Structural Journal and recently co-authored a discussion in the Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering.
Mark has worked on the structural design and construction review of a wide variety of technically demanding projects in Canada and the United States. His work includes high rise office and residential towers, parkades, recreation facilities and bridges. Mark also played a key role in the design of Glacier Skywalk which won a World Architecture Award and an Award of Excellence from the Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards.
