Haag Canada, a multi-disciplinary forensic engineering firm based in Toronto specializing in large, complex loss, has hired practice leads for its Mechanical and Electrical engineering disciplines and has opened new offices in Ottawa and Calgary to support activities led from the firm’s head office in Toronto.
With the addition of new practice leads and an expanded footprint, Haag Canada says it has reached an operational critical mass, providing a vital, independent and reliable resource for its growing roster of top insurance and legal clients across the country.
“Haag has enlisted Canada’s best of the best as part of our mission to build an independent and world-class resource for large, complex loss,” says Chris Giffin B.A.Sc., CEO, Haag Canada.
“In just eight short months, we have rapidly grown to a substantive group of multi-disciplinary forensic engineering experts capable of managing any sizeable failure.”
Having engaged in a strategic recruitment drive since its launch in September 2020, Haag Canada most recently appointed Mark Cammisuli P.Eng., CEM to head up its Mechanical group and Ken J. Huber P.Eng., SIEE to lead its Electrical (Mining and Energy) practice, rounding out the company’s initial core areas of expertise.
Haag Canada’s current suite of forensic engineering services and expertise includes:
- Forensic Engineering
- Loss Remediation and Mitigation
- Physical Damage Quantification and Appraisal
- Risk and Project Management
- Litigation and Dispute Resolution
- Construction Claims
- Environmental Health and Safety
“In addition to our growing group of professionals in Canada,” adds Giffin, “we also have access to an extended network of over 100 experts in the U.S., making Haag Canada the most qualified, independent forensic engineering resource in the large, complex loss sector.”
The company has more growth planned in the coming months, including the addition of Geotechnical and Materials engineering expertise.
Haag Canada’s newly hired Mechanical Practice Lead, Mark Cammisuli P.Eng., CEM, has extensive experience in mechanical system design and the application of complex equipment. He spent over two decades providing design instruction to engineers and architects. Cammisuli has considerable field experience, the company says, delivering action-based specification and design consultation in specialty mechanical systems, central utilities, energy management and water quality, among others. In his new role, he will work out of Haag Canada’s Toronto head office.
Based in Calgary and named Electrical (Mining & Energy) Practice Lead, Ken Huber brings with him over 30 years of experience in electrical engineering, specializing in electrical rotating equipment, automation, transformers, power products, starting systems, design, manufacturing, investigation, project management, project engineering, and factory inspections. Huber crafts personalized, bespoke services that lead to time and cost-saving solutions for his clients, the company adds.
