Darcy started with Rocky Point Engineering as a Mechanical Designer in February 2011 after finishing his co-op mechanical engineering degree at the University of Victoria. He received LEED® accreditation in 2014 and his P.Eng. license in 2015.
Throughout his time at Rocky Point Engineering, he has worked on a range of diverse projects from small commercial and residential to large commercial, LEED, healthcare, education and industrial projects.
Darcy’s main focus on a project is to deliver a high-quality system that meets all owner requirements while staying on budget to ensure a successful project from start to finish. Optimizing systems of any size is a primary goal that always provides a challenge to ensure the client is receiving the most “bang for their buck.”
Darcy’s involvement in projects include cost estimating, reports and studies, schematic design, detailed design, HVAC load calculations, HVAC design, plumbing design, energy modelling, drafting and 3D modelling, construction administration, construction inspections, and commissioning.
He believes that a system on paper is only as good as its construction and commissioning and that a hands-on approach is paramount to ensure it is constructed and set-up to operate at its maximum potential.
