Frédérick Beaucage joined the civil engineering team at our Ottawa office in February 2017. As Ottawa Regional Manager, Frédérick ensures the technical and administrative management of the regional office. He holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from École Polytechnique de Montréal. Prior to joining CEP, Frédérick worked as a site supervisor, a bridge inspector and a structural design engineer for building and scaffolding. He also worked as a residential building carpenter before beginning his university studies.
His experience as site supervisor in urban infrastructure (sewers, aqueduct, underground electrical conduits, signal lights and street lighting), earthworks (retaining wall, excavation and embankment, municipal and highway paving, concrete sidewalks and borders) and in bridge construction(made of concrete, steel-concrete and steel-wood) coupled with the experience of structural design give Frédérick a good understanding of the dynamics of constructed structures. As a forensic civil engineer, Frédérick conducts investigations on the claims sites and prepares expert reports to identify the cause of the damage and determine its extent.
He has conducted several technical investigations to date and has been recognized as an expert witness before the court.
