Curriculum Vitae

C. BRUCE EASTERBROOK, P. Eng.

TITLE: ASSOCIATE MECHANICAL ENGINEER

Mr. Easterbrook graduated from University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (1986).

Before his degree (1980 - 1982) he was employed at an engineering firm as a Draftsperson of packaged natural gas compressors and an Energy firm as a Draftsperson of oil industry equipment.

After graduation he joined a manufacturer of custom air handling units (1986 -1990) as the Mechanical Engineer. During this period he supervised the drafting department, responsible for sales and design, reported to the owners and was company liaison for CSA approvals.

He became an associate member of ASHRAE in 1987, and full member of ASHRAE in 1999.

In 1990 to the present he is a Business Owner manufacturing Log Homes, including responsibility for design of structures, HVAC, energy efficiency, OBC compliance and production equipment design and upgrades.

Since 2005 Mr. Easterbrook has operated an Engineering firm specializing in Bill 124 requirements for residential design.

In Aug 2006 Bruce became an associate with D.D.D.G. Engineering Services to provide engineering services.

SIGNIFICANT PROJECTS

Material Handling
