Executive Vice President
“I am worried that the status quo is leading us down a path that could see the destruction of the planet as we know it. Our grandchildren will wonder how we could not see reality staring us in the face. Collectively we need to do so much more to ensure a sustainable future, and I am committed to do my part and make a difference.”
Nick is recognized throughout the industry as a leader in the design of leading edge buildings. Over 40+ years at HH Angus, he has pioneered many innovative and sustainable initiatives as solutions to difficult challenges faced by our clients. As Executive Vice President, Nick leads HH Angus’ expansion in Vancouver and the west coast of Canada generally, and also focuses on growing the firm’s Sustainable Engineering services.
Nick’s technical expertise continues to benefit our staff in his role as a Knowledge Trust advisor, ensuring HH Angus’ skillsets lead the industry. In 2017, Nick was awarded the PEO/OSPE Medal for Engineering Excellence for his outstanding contributions to the profession. He also served as the firm’s Principal-in-Charge for the massive $2 billion+ CHUM P3 project in Montreal, and his team’s work on the project was honoured with the 2018 Schreyer Award, Canada’s highest honor for engineering.
Nick continues to help shape standards and codes in Canada through his participation on the CSA Technical Committee on Health Care Facilities. For two decades, 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.
Nick enjoys exploring, whether it’s the back bays of Georgian Bay in a kayak, the side roads of Ontario on his bike, skiing the Rockies, or traveling somewhere new on the other side of the world. And when he is in one place, you might find him building something, probably out of wood.
