Rob Simpson | P.Eng., Struct Eng, MBA, FEC, LEED AP SVP, Engineering
Rob’s career has included designs of some of Canada’s most unique and challenging building designs. Recent work with Glotman Simpson include Vancouver House, Vancouver Convention Centre, Olympic Village, Richmond Speed Skating Oval, Whistler’s Peak to Peak Gondola and many more. Earthquake safety has been a passion for Rob. First-hand experience from several weeks investigation of collapsed structures during a visit to California in 1994 and Chile in 2010 was the trigger for developing his deep understanding of building resilience, and his subsequent work to improve Building Codes in Canada.
Rob Simpson retired from full time work with Glotman Simpson in 2016, intending to limit his work life to occasional office visits and mentoring. Inspired by Nexii’s potential, Rob has left retirement to lead and advise Nexii’s design team.
