Prompt, honest, and open communication form the backbone of Dave’s project management approach and his clients appreciate regular chats that keep them up to date on their projects. He also firmly believes that project success is directly tied to effective scope definition, which establishes cost and schedule control, procurement, contract administration, and all other project management elements.
Dave’s spent his 40-year career managing complex assignments across many sectors as well as mentoring Stantec’s project management team. He’s helped shape the Vancouver skyline through his work on the Millennium Line (SkyTrain) and the Vancouver Convention Centre Expansion. Once, he even helped a client meet their project’s budget and scope by having an old building dismantled and tugged to the site on a barge where the structural steel was modified to suit the project.
When he’s not working, Dave can be found spending time with his family or exploring the universe in his observatory.
