In his role as Managing Principal, Jiwan has contributed to the success of projects ranging from high rise condominiums to billion-dollar rapid transit systems and hydroelectric plants.

A recognized thought leader in his field, Jiwan is a strong believer in the concepts of knowledge sharing and giving back to the community. He holds teaching positions at both the University of Toronto and the Construction Institute of Canada. He is also a contributor to the prestigious Construction Law Letter. A vocal advocate for best construction management practices for mitigating and promptly resolving disputes, he is regularly called upon as a speaker and corporate trainer.
