We are pleased to introduce you to Shawn Northwood, B.Sc.E (Engineering), EIT.

Shawn is registered in British Columbia as an Engineer-in-Training and is seeking registration as an environmental engineer.  Since graduating from Queen’s University in 2006, Shawn has developed a breadth of residuals management experience in British Columbia and Alberta.

Shawn began with SYLVIS in 2009 at the New Westminster office as an Environmental Scientist, and has progressed his career in residuals with experience in program development, project design, and operational implementation and assessment.  At SYLVIS he has participated in a broad spectrum of projects that have cultivated a unique skillset for his current position as Project Manager in the Calgary, Alberta office where he leads the implementation of the Calgary Dewatered Biosolids Demonstration Program.  The demonstration program is a turnkey, five year project to demonstrate the capacity for biosolids to improve marginal agricultural land through fertilization and establishment of a willow biomass crop.

In 2013 Shawn was the recipient of the “SYLVite of the Year” award in recognition of his outstanding contribution to SYLVIS, our clients and the environment.  Shawn plans to continue progressing as an environmental professional in Calgary in addition to spending time with his family, taking photos and riding his bike.
