Meet the Rocky Point Engineering Associates

We are excited to announce three employees who have been promoted to an Associate position within Rocky Point Engineering; these three individuals have established key abilities and attributes such as a positive attitude, ability to mentor a team and most of all have demonstrated strong leadership skills as project managers.

Darcy Pederson, P.Eng., LEED® AP BD+C

Darcy started with Rocky Point Engineering as a Mechanical Designer in February 2011 after finishing his co-op mechanical engineering degree at the University of Victoria. He received LEED® accreditation in 2014 and his P.Eng. license in 2015.

Throughout his time at Rocky Point Engineering he has worked on a diverse range of projects from small commercial and residential projects to large commercial, LEED, healthcare, education and industrial projects.

Darcy’s main focus on a project is to deliver a high-quality system that meets all owner requirements while staying on budget to ensure a successful project from start to finish. Optimizing systems of any size is a primary goal that always provides a challenge to ensure the client is receiving the most “bang for their buck.”

Darcy’s involvement in projects include cost estimating, reports and studies, schematic design, detailed design, HVAC load calculations, HVAC design, plumbing design, energy modelling, drafting and 3D modelling, construction administration, construction inspections, and commissioning.

He believes that a system on paper is only as good as its construction and commissioning and that a hands-on approach is paramount to ensure it is constructed and set-up to operate at its maximum potential.

Mathieu Bechard, P.Eng.

Mathieu started his career in 2005 at MechWave Engineering, and moved to BC in 2008 to join Rocky Point Engineering as a designer in 2008.

Mathieu specializes in designing HVAC, Plumbing and Fire Protection systems for projects such as schools, colleges, universities, community centers, warehouses, residential, commercial buildings, arenas, laboratories, libraries and office buildings.

Mathieu recently completed design of the new Emily Carr University of Art & Design, a new LEED Gold $120 million facility which incorporates a district energy system supplemented with heat recovery heat pumps, and active chilled beam technology. His wide range of experience gives him a unique and valuable perspective when he approaches new projects, and his adherence to timelines and thorough coordination has led to consistent client satisfaction.



Garrett Hunt, BASc, P.Eng.

Garrett obtained his bachelor’s degree in Applied Science at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2013, he began his career in building’s engineering as a Co-op Student with Stantec in 2010. He joined Rocky Point Engineering’s Vancouver office in 2016, obtained his P.Eng License in 2018 & became as Associate in May 2020.

Garrett has a strong passion and interest in the application of mechanical systems to create sustainable solutions to improve the lives of the building owners, operators, and users. He enjoys utilizing his knowledge of building systems to develop optimal solutions for the end users/owners of the buildings, a combination of efficiency, functionality, sustainability, & cost.
Garrett started his career working on P3 health care projects in the Okanagan and has since fostered his interest in healthcare and institutional projects. He has led and designed several projects within Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal as well as at UBC including the two largest dust collection systems on campus to comply with new NFPA and WorksafeBC standards.

Garrett believes his coordinated approach of working with others ensures successful projects and client satisfaction.
