The foundation of my experience comes from working as a Building Science Technical Consultant and Project Manager. In the capacity of an Employee or Consultant I have worked for a range of institutional clients which include York Region, Ryerson University, Brock University, Peel Region, York University, University of Toronto (Scarborough Campus), Toronto Transit Commission, as well as various Corporate Condominium and Commercial building owners throughout Canada, Caribbean and Asia.
Working as a Project Manager in a University Institution Braden has the unique experience of knowing the construction and financial constraints that Universities must work within. Within these constraints and challenges he has extensive experience solving the many problems involved with implementing large scale capital projects from concept to completion.
Typical tasks which Braden has been responsible for successfully delivering include: the planning of complex work scope; selecting qualified consultant teams through competitive RFSQ, RFP and / RFQ procurement; engaging construction teams in various CCDC construction contract types, facilitating the construction phases of work; completing commissioning; closing out building permits and managing operational readiness for the newly constructed space prior to occupancy.
Braden is a Certified Engineering Technologist (C.E.T), Project Management Professional (PMP) and has a Masters in Building Science (MBSc). He has developed College Course programs in Building Science and Construction Project Control and continues to teach part time at George Brown College Continuing Education as a way to keep up to date and engaged with best practices in the construction industry. He is also an active member of the Canadian Armed Forces currently serving in the capacity of an Officer with 32 Brigade Combat Engineer Regiment.
