With 30 years’ experience in Fire Science and Building Code consulting, Andrew Harmsworth has developed specialized expertise in the application of Fire Science and Engineering of Building Code requirements. 

Andrew is the Principal in Charge on a number of innovative projects, including the Tall Wood Building at UBC, until recently the tallest wood building in the world.  He also led the GHL team that studied the risks involved in 5 and 6 storey wood frame construction in BC which led to the BC Building Code change in 2009 and the National Building Code 2015.  Andrew was most recently recognized as ‘Wood Champion’ by WoodWorks BC and has been involved in over 20 completed 6 storey wood frame buildings.
