What is your favourite thing about working in the Commercial Real Estate industry?

Commercial Real Estate is ever-changing. The design requirements and theories expand and evolve from project to project. I am particularly interested in the growing influence and understanding of WELL / FITWell, for employee health and wellness in the workplace, and LEED for the building's place on the planet.

In what year did you join Edmonton CREW?

2018

What is your best CREW memory to-date?
 
Thus far, I'd say it was the 2019/2020 AGM, when Hilary Lumme, Melanie Ducholke, and Marg Sebzda spoke of their experiences in the industry. It was a truly engaging evening, and was fascinating to hear how each of their careers grew and developed.

Finish this sentence: “I would like other CREW members to call me when…”

I'm an electrical engineer who enjoys the design side of the business as much as the technical side.... (though I'll geek out given the chance!) So, I would like other CREW members to call me when they have a building/space/client that needs electrical design work: whether it's a feature area for lighting, a quirky power requirement, looking for a WELL or FITWell space, or sustainable design elements... or simply needing to understand how some of these elements would enhance their space or building.
