· Gerry has over four decades of electrical engineering experience including the 450 million dollar Cross Iron Mill's shopping complex project and the 500 million dollar Alberta Children's Hospital.
Gerry is afflicted with the dreaded ‘knack’; can’t stop designing so does design work through his StebEng company in addition to being DraftLogic Inc's President
· Key projects worked on as the sole employee of StebEng:
o Fifty+ floor project including condominiums, offices, retailers, and an underground parkade
§ Designed in 277/480 for all except condos, which were designed at 120/208
§ The project was taken to 70% complete in 60 hours of design time; 25 hours of which were time to prep the PDFs for the electrical design work; prep time would have been only about 5 hours had he been given best quality source drawings instead of PDFs.
§ The project was done for electrical contractor bid purposes on $8-9 million job
§ DraftLogic Electrical demonstrated great value in voltage drop calcs and feeder sizing to help the designer choose optimal quantity and location of meter centers and the distribution to them
o Complete design for a project with 135,000 ft2 of offices in four buildings plus a separate parking structure
§ The project is/was constructed Q2 2013.
§ The project took 50 hours all in for electrical design, including all design and meeting time
o An interesting project on the go Q2 2013 is a 15,000 ft2 indoor recreational usage
§ 4 hours design so far to get to 65% complete
§ It is estimated that 10hrs total design time and meetings will be required to complete the electrical design
o Another work in progress project is an 13 floor twin tower consisting of 700,000 ft2 of offices plus a parkade
§ This project is 10% done to date, it is estimated to require a total of 66hrs design time plus of 20hrs meetings to complete
o Gerry also did a preliminary design for a Postal Sorting Facility of 750,000 ft2
§ The project was taken to 70% complete in 40 hours design time. We did this project for electrical contractor bid purposes on a $12 million job
