Jak New

Senior Technologist

Jak grew up in Victoria and moved to Vancouver in 1995 to attend the Building Technology & Architecture program at BCIT. He spent much of his 20+ year career focusing on sports and recreation projects; more recently, he’s been working in the office building, education, and healthcare sectors. Jak has been involved in all aspects of project delivery, but his primary focus in the last few years has been contract administration and bringing projects to life.

As a seasoned team player, Jak prides himself on his ability to work effectively with clients, user groups, project teams, sub-consultants, and contractors. He also puts a priority on staying current with trends in the industry, and passing on that knowledge to other team members.

Outside of work, Jak trains in taekwondo, is an active cyclist, and enjoys spending time with his wife and son.
