12 Feb Trevor Cheng, P.Eng.
BKL has another P.Eng. on its team! Trevor Cheng joins the list of Professional Engineers at BKL, earning his professional engineering license in November 2018. Way to go, Trevor!
To obtain a professional engineering license, you must demonstrate at least four years of satisfactory engineering work experience and detail how your project work relates to the 34 competencies provided by the Engineers and Geoscientists BC association.
Here are some of Trevor’s works through the years:
- Port of Vancouver Terminals – Vancouver, BC
Canada’s largest port facilitates the movement of over $43 billion in goods every year and enables trade with dozens of economies worldwide. Trevor has performed work at most of these terminals, starting with vibration assessments in 2007, and monitoring terminal noise and advising the port’s various tenants is among Trevor’s largest ongoing commitments.
- Royal Opera House – London, England
Enthusiasts of the ballet and opera know the Royal Opera House well. The performing arts venue is among the largest in London, and its main auditorium can seat well over 2,000 guests. In 2015, the building underwent major renovations while shows continued to be staged. Trevor provided noise and vibration assessments for the Royal Opera House to ensure the construction noise wouldn’t affect the ambiance and operations of the stage and production house.
- Joseph and Rosalie Segal Family Health Centre – Vancouver, BC
This $82 million, eight-storey building located within the Vancouver General Hospital site was designed to provide specialized mental health and substance-use care. The building officially opened its doors to the community in 2017. Trevor assessed indoor and outdoor noise levels from the building’s HVAC system. Also, during the building’s construction phase, Trevor reviewed shop drawings and made recommendations to meet speech privacy requirements between suites.
- Victoria International Airport (YYJ) – North Saanich, BC
One of Trevor’s passions is flying, so he has a particular interest in aircraft noise. Noise is a significant ongoing concern with all airports, and YYJ is no exception. In an effort to reduce the negative effects of noise on surrounding communities, BKL was retained by the airport authority to conduct noise measurements in seven locations and assess potential effects. Trevor completed this project by presenting our results to the interested stakeholders.
Trevor’s engineering career has taken him all over the world: Germany, England, and now back to where he grew up in Vancouver, BC. Trevor joined BKL in 2016 and took on a range of projects focused on industrial and transportation noise. Trevor has become a reliable and consistent project engineer, valued by colleagues and clients alike for his professionalism and steady work ethic.
You worked hard for this, Trevor. Congratulations!
