A self-proclaimed behind-the-scenes guy, Robert focuses on solving problems by applying technology. He makes our teams more efficient, improves quality, and creates innovative solutions. Hopefully, resulting in more free time that can be spent on improving the design.
As a leader of Building Information Modeling (BIM) research and development at Stantec, Robert helps our teams by providing the tools that make projects more successful. On one recent project, when there were some concerns that technology mishandling was causing problems, Robert and his team went in. The team identified a few improvement areas including some custom tools that would reduce redundant, time-consuming, or low value tasks. The end result? The project took off again, and some of those custom tools were repurposed for other work areas.
Robert hails from a family of skiers—his wife and two kids—though the youngest, only a year old, doesn’t know he enjoys it yet. Robert serves on the board of directors for his local church, and in the next few years, he plans to set up a model railroad in his basement with the kids.
