Jeff is the Director of Transportation Design for the Vancouver office of Perkins+Will. His passion is to create buildings that are more than just places to wait for buses and trains, but rather become landmarks and multi-use community hubs that improve the urban environment. His belief is that transit hubs and stations should inspire and ennoble a passenger’s transit experience, creating buildings and community spaces that make mass-transit modes feel like first-class modes of transportation.
With over 15 years of experience, Jeff has worked on many of Perkins+Will’s most significant transit projects, both in North America and internationally. He’s not only currently shaping Metro Vancouver’s transit scene with his work on two stations for the new Evergreen line, but he’s also been involved in exporting the firm’s transit knowledge: completing preliminary designs for 13 stations on Ottawa’s new transformative LRT line; completing the schematic design for Sound Transit’s LRT extension in Seattle; and currently developing and integrating eight stations into the most urban areas along Honolulu’s new transit line.
He’s also currently leading the architectural design of the Riyadh Metro and bus rapid transit system systems in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, which will be the largest transit system in the world to date to be designed and built at one time. The Metro consists of a staggering 175 kilometers of rail along six different lines that include 72 stations in addition to eight multi-modal interchange stations—all to be built within the next mind-boggling four years.
