Tibor Kokai

MSc, PhD, P.Eng. | Principal

Tibor is one of the foremost structural engineers practicing in Canada. He specializes in residential, commercial, and institutional sectors, working with great Canadian and world renowned architects from around the world. Tibor is an expert in reinforced and post-tensioned concrete design, experienced in finite element analysis, advanced structural steel building systems, and seismic and dynamic analysis for tall and super-tall buildings. He is an intellectual property holder (with the University of Toronto) for a damper system for controlling the motion of tall and super-tall buildings for wind and earthquake excitation, called the viscoelastic coupling dampers or VCD-s.

He has led the structural design of some of Canada’s most significant buildings. His accomplishments include The One, which will be Canada’s tallest building and the country’s first supertall skyscraper, CIBC Square, Calgary City Centre and the 160 Front Street office tower.

He holds a master's degree in Structural Engineering and a PhD. from the Technical University of Budapest. He co-authored the Concrete Design Handbook and is a writer of the Foundations chapter. He has been a member of the CSA A23.3 Design of Concrete Structures for nearly two decades, as well as a past member of the Standing Committee on Earthquake Design. Tibor is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE). The CAE comprises many of Canada’s most accomplished engineers, with Fellows nominated and elected by their peers based on their distinguished achievements and advancement of the engineering profession.
