About Lindsay

Urban-Systems-LindsayTOver the last decade Lindsay has worked on projects of various sizes throughout the province in land development, heavy industry, and municipal work. Having completed an engineering technology diploma in Kamloops a move to a Kelowna consulting firm saw opportunities with organizations such as UBC-Okanagan, designing new residences and infrastructure for the expanding university. Additionally, working in the field with the inspectors created a better understanding of the importance of concise communication through the design process. From this point on, when moving back to Kamloops in 2010, blending field work with design became paramount and lead to a position at Highland Valley Copper. Understanding heavy industry was a great experience but the variety of diverse projects in the consulting field was what brought Lindsay back to consulting in 2013. Learning to find the balance between land development and municipal projects has allowed for great opportunities; being part of the design team for Orchard’s Walk Development, construction survey for Juniper West Development, designing the technically challenging City of Kamloops Public Works Yard. In the last several years Lindsay has been the lead designer of three major projects for the City of Quesnel; a new trunk main/reservoir/booster station, storm and road upgrading on the City’s west side, and they City’s downtown revitalization. Being an integrated part of the team has led to exceptional knowledge transfer, professional growth, and great working relationships with clients, colleagues and contractors. In addition to working in consulting Lindsay also taught Auto CAD Civil 3D at Thompson Rivers University for 6 years. This was an opportunity that allowed for constant learning, technical improvement and the transferring of knowledge to students entering the field.
