Nick Stark Recognized with UofT Engineering Alumni Award

Congratulations to Nick Stark, Executive Vice President at HH Angus, on his selection for UofT’s Engineering Alumni Hall of Distinction Award. These awards recognize and celebrate University of Toronto engineering alumni for outstanding achievement. This year’s winners showcase the wide range of engineering careers, as well as how engineers influence and impact the built environment and how we all interact with it.

Nick’s commitment to engineering, innovation and sustainable design is well known in the industry. He has previously been recognized with the PEO/OSPE Medal for Engineering Excellence for his outstanding contributions to the profession.

As Executive Vice President, Nick leads HH Angus’ expansion in Vancouver and Western Canada and focuses on growing our Sustainable Engineering services. In addition, Nick’s technical expertise continues to benefit our staff through his efforts as a mentor and advisor, helping to build the skillsets of our employees so that HH Angus continues as industry leaders. Nick served as the firm’s Principal-in-Charge for the massive $2 billion+ CHUM P3 project in Montreal, and our team’s work on that project was honoured with the Schreyer Award, Canada’s highest honour for engineering. He is currently deeply involved with our work on the Cowichan District Hospital Replacement in BC which will be Canada’s first CaGBC Net-Zero hospital and BC’s first fully electric hospital.

Nick also helps shape the industry’s professional standards and codes in Canada through his work with the CSA Technical Committee on Health Care Facilities. For twenty-five years, he has been chairing the CSA Subcommittee on Special Requirements for HVAC Systems in Health Care Facilities, and is also a vice-chair of Z8000, Health Care Facilities. He has recently taken on the Vice Chair role of a new Subcommittee focused on adapting standards to deal with the impacts of climate change as well as making sure they are appropriate for northern facilities.

“Nick has an innate ability to bring out the best in others,” says Marianne Lee, Principal and Associate Director, Health Division. “He encourages and motivates them to be innovative thinkers and problem solvers and inspires the team to deliver the best-possible solutions to our clients.”
