Added bench strength signals further expansion for integrated design firm
VANCOUVER, Sept. 3, 2013 /CNW/ - As part of a continued commitment to integrated design, DIALOG recently made a significant addition to its leadership team. Mechanical Engineer Rod Yeoh (B.A.Sc., P.Eng., P.E., LEED AP BD+C) joins DIALOG as a Principal in the Vancouver studio.
"Rod is widely acknowledged as a leader in integrated practice development and project management," says DIALOG Vancouver's Studio Managing Principal Alan Boniface. "His reputation and success with multi-disciplinary design and delivery will undoubtedly help grow our integrated practice. Perhaps most importantly, however, his commitment to great work and enjoying the process will fit right in."
Yeoh joins DIALOG after nearly 15 years as a Principal and Director of Engineering at Omicron AEC. His portfolio ranges from retail to recreation and includes the Fred Kaiser Engineering Building at UBC and the Marine Drive Golf and Country Club, and the award-winning LEED Gold certified City of Vancouver National Avenue Works Yard.
"I have been following DIALOG's work across Canada for the last few years and I really believe that integrated design is the best way to approach sustainable building," says Yeoh. "DIALOG is doing it correctly and advancing great work. I am joining the Vancouver Studio so that we can build an engineering team here and further the office's capacity to provide fully integrated services."
As a sought after thought-leader, Rod has recently presented on sustainable mechanical systems integration to the Building Owners and Managers Association, BC Hydro, Terasen, Light House Sustainable Building Centre, ASHRAE, APEGBC and at Buildex Vancouver.
