Managing Principal and Senior Engineer


Prior to joining Paterson Group (Paterson) in 1990, Carlos held various positions with Jacques Whitford Limited (now Stantec) and Fondex Limited (now EXP Services). In his 10 years prior to Paterson, Carlos advanced from a field engineer to Director of Business Development and Vice President. Carlos undertook a wide variety of engineering projects on sites across the Province of Ontario and Quebec, including geotechnical and environmental assignments, materials testing and building sciences. Carlos’ success came from his tireless effort and ability to encourage staff to perform better and maintain schedule and budget. Upon joining Paterson in 1990, Carlos became the Geotechnical Manager and Director of Business Development. Seeing an opportunity for growth, Carlos opened the Paterson Environmental Division in 1991.


The environmental division has flourished under Carlos’ management and guidance to grow to more than 25 staff of engineers, scientists and technologists. Carlos has worked closely with clients, Ministry of the Environmental and industry leaders to provide innovative approaches and quality service in the environmental and geotechnical engineering industries. Carlos’ leadership, ability to manage a variety of small to large scale projects such as West Block at Parliament Hill, Lansdowne Park Redevelopment, the Zibi project on Chaudiere Island, and his extensive engineering experiences across various themes demonstrate his ability to provide sufficient guidance for a diversity of environmental Brownfield projects in all regions and subsurface conditions.
