About Gordon F. Anderson
Gord began his career in structural engineering after earning his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (with distinction) from the University of Alberta in 1962. He joined DIALOG (then Cohos Evamy) in the 90s, applying his creativity and design excellence to the conceptual and detailed structural design of public and commercial buildings, including landmark projects such as the Francis Winspear Centre for Music, the Kaye Edmonton Clinic, and a remarkable five buildings for the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Engineering.
In addition to his role on projects, Gord was a beloved mentor to the structural engineering team, helping to groom and provide guidance to those following in his footsteps. Gord retired in 2016.
