Carla joined Fast + Epp in 2012, having freshly completed her Master’s degree studies at the University of British Columbia.
Originally from Saskatchewan, Carla gained experience as a project engineer on architecturally-oriented commercial, recreational, educational, and residential projects at the Canadian firm, Blackwell Structural Engineers.
At Fast + Epp, Carla has gained a fluency in all major building materials, including concrete, steel, light-framed wood, heavy timber and mass timber.
She has proved invaluable for our clients when it comes to understanding building physics and materials. Her thesis research focused on hybrid systems, specifically those combining steel and mass timber (CLT).
Along with her 2010 Master of Science in Structural Engineering, Carla obtained a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Alberta in 2007.
