Brandon is a structural engineer with a keen interest in construction and building systems, as well as prototyping. As Concept Lab manager he oversees the design, testing, and product development for the Lab with the goal of creating innovative yet practical solutions for the built environment.
Prior to joining the Concept Lab, Brandon worked as a project engineer in California and New Zealand, and then as an engineering lead for design-build firms including a steel fabricator in Ontario and a timber specialist designer/contractor in BC. He has been fortunate to contribute to the engineering of landmark structures around the world, including: the world’s tallest observation wheel in Las Vegas, NV, a leaning and base-isolated airport control tower in Wellington, NZ, and three long-span timber grid shell domes which function as botanical garden greenhouses in Taiyuan, China.
Brandon graduated with his Bachelor of Science in 2009 from Lehigh University, and then completed a Master of Engineering degree at Cornell University in 2010. During his free time, Brandon enjoys hiking, camping, biking, running, and carpentry.
