Title: President
Company: Imrie Engineering Inc.
Location: Vancouver, Canada

Alan Imrie, President of Imrie Engineering Inc., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in geologic/geotechnical engineering for hydroelectric dams, power plants, tunnels, and reservoir slopes.

Mr. Imrie became involved in his profession after his experience living on Great Bear Lake in Northern Canada on a mining camp with his family when he was 10 years old. He learned a lot about engineering as his father worked as a mining engineer. This introduction lent itself to wanting to learn more. In this respect, Mr. Imrie pursued it in his education, first receiving a Bachelor of Science in geological engineering from the University of Alberta in 1963. He continued at the institution to receive a Master of Science in structural geology in 1967. As a testament to his capabilities within his field, he is certified with the American Society of Civil Engineers and The Engineering Institute of Canada.

Mr. Imrie has had a longstanding career in the field. Since 2004, he has been the president of his own consulting firm, Imrie Engineering Inc. In this venture, he brings decades of skills and expertise as a chief technical officer for power supply engineering, engineering geologist, consulting engineer, and field geologist. He has held a number of roles with BC Hydro, IPEC, Irwin Engineering and the Research Council of Alberta. After receiving an undergraduate degree, one of his first jobs was as a field geologist with the Research Council of Alberta. With a vast wealth of experience, Mr. Imrie looks forward to retiring within the coming years.

AS a testament to the success Mr. Imrie has had in the field, he has been recognized on several occasions. These accolades include receiving the 2009 Geotechnical Engineer of the Year from the Vancouver Geotechnical Society and the 2001 R.M. Quigley Award “for an outstanding contribution to the geotechnical profession” from the Canadian Geotechnical Society. MR. Imrie was honored in 1983 with the Thomas Roy Award “for the best technical paper in engineering geology” from the Canadian Geotechnical Society, and in 1979, he received a  Gold Medal “in recognition of best technical paper in the field of Canadian rock mechanics” from the Canadian National Committee on Rock Mechanics. Mr. Imrie’s mission is “Making sure that everyone on the team gets heard.”
