Duane Palibroda

A Principal of Fast + Epp since 2013, Duane serves as General Manager of company operations. He contributes more than 25 years of experience as design lead on some of our firm’s most prolifically awarded projects.

His work is marked by its efficiency, precision, and on-time delivery; Duane is continuously looking for ways to do things better and without unnecessary complication. He also oversees the management of our Seattle and Calgary offices, and thrives on building new relationships with architects.

This approach can perhaps be attributed to his beginnings: Duane spent the first seven years of his career as an architectural engineering technologist in Saskatchewan before obtaining his Civil Engineering degree in 1993.

He then moved to London, England and credits this time as the foundation for his practical, economical and creative design solutions. While in London, Duane obtained his Chartered Engineering status.

Relocating to Vancouver in 1998, Duane joined Fast + Epp and was able to fully exercise his passion for innovative building design. He obtained status as a Fellow of the Institution of Structural Engineers in 2014.

Duane graduated from the Saskatchewan Technical Institute with a Diploma in Architectural Engineering Technology in 1982, and a degree in Civil Engineering in 1993.
