About the seminar

Mr. Andy Carson, M.Eng., P.Eng, C.Eng MICE of WSP Engineering

Andy focused on:

  1. How to apply each type of modular building solution to modern building designs
  2. Recognizing and overcoming challenges of applying modular building solutions to conceptual designs
  3. Benefits of modular construction when compared to traditional techniques; including, but not limited to, cost and schedule savings, increased safety and improved sustainability compared to traditional construction

Andy is a structural engineer at WSP in Vancouver, originally from Manchester, UK. His broad project experience enables him exercise fluency in all primary structural materials and building types, including residential, commercial and industrial. No matter the building type, Andy has a passion for architecturally driven structural engineering, where he uses his collaboration skills to help bring architectural vision to fruition. Andy has been involved in several modular building projects within BC and has first hand experiences of some of the opportunities this solution brings, as well as the challenges that remain

RJC generously sponsored this session.

We enjoyed a joint presentation and discussion involving two industry leaders about everyday design for buildings to achieve net zero carbon.

The World Green Building Council and Canada’s Green Building Council started the Net Zero Carbon initiative.

Lisa Westerhoff (Integral Group) and Mo Khan (O’M Engineering) helped us dive into net zero carbon buildings on Thursday, 14 November 2019.
