Who We Are

Wicke Herfst Maver Consulting Inc. (WHM) is a structural engineering firm with a wealth of experience in the design of residential, commercial, institutional and educational facilities located in Canada and the United States.

Formed in 2006, WHM has compiled a portfolio of projects that showcase our ample knowledge and expertise in structural engineering. Having licenses in both Canada and the United States, we are able to offer our expertise throughout North America. Furthermore, WHM has provided structural engineering services for international clients in places such as Dubai, Cuba and Tajikistan. Our team of engineers are able to work with local authorities and experts to understand material and labour options such that our designs are harmonized to the local conditions.

The firm is committed to ensuring the delivery of quality service throughout each project, as WHM was formed with the primary intention of

“…providing exceptional and timely service to all of our clients – large or small!” – Dan Wicke, P.Eng. – Principal

By carefully managing workload, the Principals are able to maintain a hands-on approach throughout the entire life of each project from schematic design through construction.

WHM produces clear and concise documents that are intuitive to use for both bidders and construction personnel. Our drawings are well-detailed and easy to read while avoiding the common pit-fall of repetitive call-outs, which often lead to discrepancies and confusion.

“I just wanted to drop you guys a note in appreciation of your clear and legible drawings which has become a dying art in our industry” – Bruno Weber, Associate, Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects

We are the people who strive to make a difference for our clients. We care deeply about quality and strive to understand your objectives and priorities – and that is shown in the building projects we have completed for our clients. We would be pleased to discuss how we can tailor our services to meet your structural engineering requirements!

WHAT MAKES WHM DIFFERENT

WHM was formed in the fall of 2006 with the primary intention of:

“…providing exceptional and timely service to all of our clients – large or small!” — Dan Wicke, P.Eng.

“If we feel that taking an additional project would over-tax our resources and be detrimental to the service we would provide, we would kindly decline!…otherwise, expect exceptional service!” — Brian Maver, P.Eng., LEED AP

Have you heard this before and claim it’s an empty promise? We are different! We strive to maintain a manageable workload for ourselves and for our staff. This allows us to provide the attention that your individual project deserves – alternate concepts and varying schemes, thinking beyond just the common structural solution. Maintaining a manageable workload relieves stress for us, our clients, and the consulting team. Ultimately, it allows us more time to focus on efficient design which saves the client money.
