Gerry Epp - President, President
Gerry is at heart an engineer. Having consulted with leading architects for twenty-five years he has developed a keen sense for good architecture in expressed structure, creating a strong demand for his consultation on buildings and footbridges. He started StructureCraft in the late 90s as a response to the desire of architects to reconnect with the engineer and craftsman. Using the constraints of aesthetics, physics and construction to shape the right solution, Gerry continues to serve clients, giving projects overall vision, from the early concepts down to the execution of the details. He is licensed as Professional Engineer in a number of Canadian provinces and US states, and as Structural Engineer in BC. His projects have won numerous awards for structural engineering innovation and efficiency. He presents at many speaking engagements in North America and abroad, including the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Gerry serves on various editorial boards, the technical committee of CSA 086 (Canada’s Timber Code), and is honorary member of the Architectural Institute of BC. He is also partner in Fast+Epp Structural Engineers, the internationally recognized structural engineering firm which partners with StructureCraft.
