How We Do It
Practical and Innovative. Providing Optimized Solutions and Sustainable Design.
We are always asking "Is there a better way?".
In an industry where every dollar counts, sometimes "the way it's always been done" doesn't cut it. There is a seismic shift happening in electrical technology for facilities. The number of options available has exploded thanks to technologies like LED, solar, micro-controllers, batteries, building automation systems, etc.. Energy codes are becoming more stringent. Systems are becoming more complex.
At Beacon Engineering we embrace these changes.
We learn everything that we can about them so that our clients can leverage the benefits. We strive to make design decisions that meet the client's needs while at the same time balancing cost, functionality, efficiency, performance, safety, and aesthetics.
At Beacon Engineering, we stay up to date on industry trends and technology not just to stay relevant, but also to optimize our processes and solutions while minimizing errors. Proper calculations, clean and concise drawings, representative models and renderings, accurate specifications, and detailed documentation provide a basis for competitive bids and well executed projects. We are experts in the industry-standard software that we use, and are continually adapting as new tools become available.

Justin German, P.Eng.Electrical Engineer - Owner
Justin has been at the forefront of numerous successful electrical projects of various size and complexity. He is a problem solver and is committed to design excellence. Using polished communication skills, he is able to ensure that his client's design vision is met in a realistic and cost effective manner.
Justin has enjoyed 15 years in the electrical and technology fields, 6 of those years in engineering consulting. He has a well rounded background that combines innovation, field experience, and project success.
Early in his career, he acquired invaluable experience in the software development industry. Because of this, he is able to fully leverage the power of modern design software into his practice (e.g., BIM, lighting calculations, power system analysis, etc) providing greater efficiency and accuracy. This experience has also allowed him a unique perspective on the inner workings of smart building technologies.
While working in the oil and gas sector as an instrumentation technician he spent his time coordinating, installing, and commissioning communication, instrumentation, and automation systems across North America. This field experience is indispensable to his career as an electrical engineer, particularly in his ability to foresee construction issues and physical constraints, understand the value of excellent documentation, and clearly communicate with contractors and technicians.
Justin received his Bachelor of Engineering degree with distinction from Carleton University in Ottawa. He then began his path in electrical engineering consulting at a multi-discipline consulting firm in Edmonton. He has since moved his young family to Saskatoon, in his home province of Saskatchewan so that his kids can be closer to their grandparents.
Highly motivated from the momentum of his career success to date, Justin is excited about his new venture at Beacon Engineering. Contact us to discuss how he can help you with your next electrical project!
