CEP-Sintra continues to enhance its structural group in Western Canada, with the recent addition of four new employees. Adel Shoaib, Ph.D., P.Eng., Hami Razaghi, M.Eng., P.Eng., Jeff Howie, P.Eng., and Shane Kasprick, P.Eng., combine to add over 75 years of experience to the western team. The addition of these engineers expands our reach and our ability to attend to files in a timely manner.
Adel Shoaib, Ph.D., P.Eng. – Vancouver, BC
Adel Shoaib is familiar with analyzing the effects of gravity, wind and seismic loads on structures, with extensive experience in timber, steel and concrete structure design and analysis. He holds a Ph.D. in Structural Engineering from the University of Alberta, which was focused on fibre reinforced concrete structures. Adel’s extensive understanding of structural failures, and their likely causes, has equipped him to provide both the detailed analysis of a failure, and the required repair recommendations.
Hami Razaghi, M.Eng., P.Eng. – Edmonton, AB
With over 26 years of design experience in wood, steel, masonry and concrete construction, and past projects ranging from residential construction to major industrial retrofits, Hami Razaghi has a technical knowledge that is unmatched. His extensive education and experience in structural engineering and building envelope science provide him with the expertise to effectively evaluate building conditions, determine the cause of a loss and provide recommendations for repairs if required.
Jeff Howie, P.Eng. – Calgary, AB
Before moving to CEP-Sintra, Jeff Howie spent over 20 years designing and facilitating projects in the oil and gas industry. His experience as a project manager and civil structural engineer gives him a breadth of knowledge that provides a unique perspective. His familiarity with the construction process, in both large and small-scale projects, allows him to provide superior insight into all types of failures.
Shane Kasprick, P.Eng. – Edmonton, AB
Shane Kasprick’s experience in residential, commercial, and industrial engineering and construction management provides him a wealth of knowledge related to failure mechanisms and required repairs. His previous work preparing building envelope condition assessments, concrete reinforcement and weld inspection, and the erection of structural steel has prepared him to investigate the wide array of failures that are often seen in forensic engineering.
