About Phillip Quach

Phillip Quach (P.Eng.) is a Structural Engineer at Read Jones Christoffersen working on complex projects spanning across commercial, residential, and institutional sectors. Equipped with in depth structural consulting experience, Phillip is proficient in the analysis and design of reinforced concrete and steel structures. As a member of RJC’s structural technical group, he engages in ongoing technical development within the firm.

Leading a groundbreaking research project focused on the shear response of very thick reinforced concrete slabs, Phillip built and tested the world’s deepest shear specimen as part of his graduate thesis at the University of Toronto. Preliminary results were published in an article he coauthored that was featured on the cover of ACI’s Concrete International magazine in November 2015, a paper later selected to win the ACI Design Award in 2017.

About Phillip Quach

Phillip Quach (P.Eng.) is a Structural Engineer at Read Jones Christoffersen working on complex projects spanning across commercial, residential, and institutional sectors. Equipped with in depth structural consulting experience, Phillip is proficient in the analysis and design of reinforced concrete and steel structures. As a member of RJC’s structural technical group, he engages in ongoing technical development within the firm.

Leading a groundbreaking research project focused on the shear response of very thick reinforced concrete slabs, Phillip built and tested the world’s deepest shear specimen as part of his graduate thesis at the University of Toronto. Preliminary results were published in an article he coauthored that was featured on the cover of ACI’s Concrete International magazine in November 2015, a paper later selected to win the ACI Design Award in 2017. The experiment provides a new benchmark for shear tests, bringing about an improved understanding of the shear behaviour of these massive members representative in many structures today.

Earthquake engineering has become a keen interest of Phillip's owing to his fascination with the continually developing field. Having garnered a practical foundation in seismic design knowledge during his graduate studies, he is competent in the fundamentals of both linear and nonlinear static/dynamic analysis of buildings and is further enhancing these skills on industry projects.

Phillip received his B.A.Sc. with honors in Civil Engineering and his M.A.Sc. in Structural Engineering from the University of Toronto in 2013 and 2016 respectively. He is a registered Professional Engineer in the province of Ontario, and is excited to bring these experiences to the CTBUH Canada
