16 Oct New EITs
BKL is pleased to welcome two new employees, Forest Borch and Jordan Reniak.
After completing a successful internship with BKL last year, Borch returned to the University of Alberta and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering in April 2015. Borch has experience performing noise and vibration measurements as well as using noise modelling software Cadna/A, SONarchitect and Insul. While working at the University of Munich, Forest tested and studied the effects of footsteps on lightweight flooring to predict sound transmission.
Reniak graduated with distinction from UBC with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering. During his studies, Reniak completed courses in acoustics and noise control, vibration, and computational fluid dynamics. He also contributed to projects that relied on the design of instrumentation and electronic control systems. Since joining BKL, Reniak has regularly conducted field measurements and data analysis and has worked on a variety of projects including condition assessments of performances spaces, vibration assessments, highway noise baseline assessments, industrial noise source and mitigation studies, and environmental sound contour mapping.
