Bernie is a senior geotechnical engineer with 20 years of consulting engineering experience across Canada. He has provided a lead technical role on large scale oil and gas, safety reviews for tailings dams, transportation and commercial projects. He has a particular interest in forensic geotechnical consulting related to failures of embankments, dams and natural slopes.
Bernie is one of a few geotechnical engineers in Canada with design and construction experience using recycled tires (known in the industry as Tire Derived Aggregate). Bernie and his team were recently awarded the “Innovation Award” by the Association of Canadian Engineering Companies for successfully developing a lightweight fill embankment solution which ultimately saved his client time and money.
