Gord has enjoyed a successful career spanning over 40 years as an engineering consultant in advanced building design, energy, and sustainability. He has provided consulting services for new and retrofit/renovation projects across Canada and internationally, from concept to detailed design. In addition to his credentials in building design, construction, and delivery, Gord is also a recognized authority on building performance rating, measurement, and verification, and he has played an instrumental role in the development and deployment of several building environmental rating systems, including Green Globes and LEED. He is widely sought as a technical advisor and holds current and past advisory appointments to numerous international, national, and regional government agencies, utilities, professional bodies, and NGOs.
Gord has served on numerous GBI ANSI Standard Consensus Bodies and technical subcommittees for both New Construction and Existing Buildings. Gord’s background allows him to view Green Globes projects from the perspective of both the assessor and the project team, and he is acutely aware of the challenges of balancing aspiration with pragmatism. He understands the multi-faceted processes of taking a project from conception to delivery and brings that empathy to the assessment process.
Gord is now mostly retired but continues to provide limited specialized advisory services to select clients and organizations.
