Peter Rand

PE
Associate Principal, Structural Engineering Discipline Leader, Senior Structural Engineer

Peter leads SMRT’s structural engineering team and has over 30 years of hands-on experience, from project engineering to project management. With his comprehensive understanding of construction materials, he has designed multiple projects involving structural steel, reinforced concrete, masonry, wood, and foundation engineering. Project types he has worked on include pulp and paper, power generation, power distribution, cleanrooms, commercial construction, and sports facilities.

Joining SMRT in 2016, Peter is known for his ability to solve complex structural challenges—knowing that the obvious answer may not be the best option—to bring a client’s vision to fruition. He is deliberate in utilizing a variety of lenses for each project, including stability, constructability, budget, aesthetic impact, and future building flexibility. He passes that approach on to younger staff as part of his passion for mentoring.
