Nick Trovato

BSc, MEng, P.Eng., FEC, FGC(Hon) | Managing Principal

A prominent engineer and leader of building science in Alberta, Nick leads RJC Edmonton’s Building Science and Restoration team. He brings a strong understanding of the performance of the building structure and the building exterior. His knowledge of cladding systems used in our northern environment, his attention to detail, and eye for constructability, is a great asset to any project.

Nick’s structural design background and inquisitive nature helped him develop a strong understanding of how buildings perform and where problems can occur. He extended this knowledge to the design of new building envelopes. A recognized expert in building science he has presented papers and made presentations on building science and structural restoration to local and international groups at the International Conference on Building Envelope Systems and Technologies (ICBEST), the Conference on Concrete Under Severe Conditions (CONSEC), the American Concrete Institute (ACI), Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), and the Canadian Condominium Institute. He is also a qualified expert witness in the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, representing clients in litigations, arbitrations and mediations relating to both building science and structural issues.

Nick has his bachelor and master’s degrees at the University of Alberta. Passionate about his work and advancing the field of building science, Nick is actively involved in numerous industry associations. He is a former committee member of the APEGA Council, the APEGA/Architects Association of Alberta Joint Board of Practice, the APEGA Practice Review Board, APEGA’s Professional Development Committee, and the Edmonton Member’s Liaison Committee. He was the first recipient of the APEGA Early Accomplishment Award for integrity, expertise and outstanding accomplishments in their career and received national recognition for his contributions to his profession when he was awarded an Engineers Canada Fellowship.
