Kevin MacLean

RJC Engineers, Principal | Toronto, Canada

About

Kevin is a Principal with RJC Engineers in Toronto, and specializes in the design of tall and complex structures. He has broad expertise in tall / slender structures governed by dynamic building motions caused by wind. Many of his projects required close collaboration with leading wind consultants and require the use of supplemental damping systems, including the 454 Yonge Street - YC Condo Tower, the first building in the world to utilize the viscoelastic coupling damper system. Kevin is currently the engineer-of-record for 1 Bloor West – The ONE, which will be Canada’s tallest building when complete. Kevin’s other high-profile tall building projects include: 160 Front St. office tower, 30 Bay – The HUB, and the Mirvish – Gehry Towers.
