Andy is an Experienced Senior Project Manager successfully completing numerous Commercial, Residential and Industrial Construction Projects throughout Western Canada. These projects have ranged from minor Tenant Improvements for select clients to Multi-Million Dollar Office Buildings, Malls, Restaurants, Retail Facilities, Luxury Condominiums and High End Permanent Construction Camps.

He has Design Build Experience with numerous projects including the successful completion of the first phase 5 Storey Office Complex for Syncrude Canada (100,000 SF +) in Mildred Lake, Ft. McMurray, AB. as well as many others.
The Motto he tries to live by is “Do it Right the First Time, but if by some chance that isn’t possible – then fix it so it won’t happen a third time”. Communication and attention to detail is the lifeblood of any successful project – so that’s what he tries to promote on any Project he gets involved with.
Andy has been a resident of Kamloops for almost 9 years now and enjoys the people, climate and lifestyle that Kamloops offers. There are few places that can compare to the beauty, peaceful way of life and the ever-changing landscape and lighting that the Valleys of Kamloops offer. Golfing, Hiking, Biking and Kayaking are a few of the activities that he enjoys doing with his wife and extended family. One day soon he says – I’m going to practice the Fly Fishing lesson that my sister taught me when she visited Kamloops a few years ago.

As a Project Manager for many of A&T’s Developments, Cameron’s specialty is complex large scale multi-family, commercial and mixed-use projects. He is responsible for the financial, scheduling, permitting and planning and processes to ensure on-time and on-budget completion of large scale developments. He selects and supervises all onsite managers and tradespersons and measures and reports project progress on a continuous basis.
Having managed residential, commercial and industrial builds that span from municipal facilities to oil fields, Cameron has successfully guided projects through business case, planning, budgeting, procurement, scheduling, project reporting and stakeholder liaison – always ensuring the highest standards of quality and safety.
He holds a Bachelor of Technology in Construction Management and is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) with additional certification as a LEED Green Associate.

Since joined the A&T team in 2009, Warren has been the Site Superintendent on numerous residential and commercial projects. He ensures that all activities, supplies, equipment and personnel on a job site are prepared and progress as planned. He ensures safety standards are maintained on the site each day, and is the go-to guy for all labourers and trades, liaising closely on all site-specific details with our project managers.
A carpenter by trade, Warren applies decades of building knowledge and experience to each project. His style is to motivate by example: when he sees something that needs doing, he works alongside staff and trades to get it done. As the liaison between the project manager and all labourers and trades, often liaising directly with the client when needed, Warren has a handle on everything that happens on site each day. Regardless of the challenge, Warren remains solution-focused. A trait that has enabled him to build respectful and productive relationships with clients, suppliers and tradespeople.
The one word that best describes Warren is dedicated. He is usually the first person on site each morning and the last person to leave at the end of the day – making sure the site is clean and secure and prepared for another day of productivity.
And when Warren does leave the job site, he usually drives away thinking about what he can do or build for his most important project – his two young and active children.

Jackie oversees the interior design on all A&T’s development sales centres and display homes as well as all interior specifications and design for A&T’s large scale commercial and multi-family developments throughout the region.
With a degree in Applied Interior Design, and a knack for finding creative solutions, her office mates know Jackie’s mantra is ‘balance’.

Her design solutions have been implemented in numerous A&T multifamily, commercial and residential developments.
It takes a unique skill to imagine how people might experience a space long before the walls are built. But this is Jackie’s forte and she has repeatedly demonstrated it, helping the company earn several industry awards.
Inspired by the fortitude of her mother, Jackie does not shy away from challenge. Instead, she stays grounded (which really means ‘well-balanced’) and embraces the times when the solution is not easily found.
