With nearly 40 years experience as a specification writer, Brian, a graduate of Fanshawe College, our founder and president, is the mentor of our team, developing our philosophy and approach to specification writing. Always striving to improve the interface with our clients and their projects, Brian's focus is on the quality of our master specifications and client relationships.

Constantly developing our philosophy and framework, and how we implement these on an on-going basis, Brian sets the tone to everything we do, and everything we write.

 

He got his start as a specification writer in Calgary and Edmonton before moving to the Toronto area. Under Brian's guidance, BBS has evolved from a one-man practice to a growing team of specialists, preparing specifications for a number of award winning projects with some of the leading architectural firms in North America.
