Dave Peterson

Dave Peterson received his Diploma of Building Technology at BCIT in 1988, and subsequently worked as a draftsman, project manager and eventually Associate and IT Coordinator, at CEI Architecture. In 2008, Dave left CEI to start Blue Camas Consulting, focusing on sustainable building issues.

Blue Camas projects include Sustainability Consultant for the Regional District of Nanaimo’s Administration and Transit Buildings Expansions, helping to facilitate one of the RDN’s first initiatives into the Integrated Design Process as well as provide LEED Coordination Services.  Dave has also been part of one of the larger IDP initiatives in British Columbia, as a member of the Facilitation Team for the 14 housing and support services projects within the BC Housing / City of Vancouver – Provincial Homelessness Initiative providing homes and resources for the individuals facing mental health and addiction challenges.

As the primary LEED Consultant for one current LEED Canada BD+C 2009 Certification, and six LEED Canada NC 1.0 Certifications, Dave is one of the most experienced LEED BD+C Coordinators in the Vancouver area. Dave has extensive experience with all facets of LEED Certification including contractor and design consultants’ LEED Documentation, Credit Interpretation Requests, MURB, Core and Shell, Campus and Multiple Building, and Leased Tenant Spaces, as well as helping clients analyze their projects using Life Cycle Assessment and Energy Modelling solutions.

In addition to his work as IDP Facilitator and LEED Coordinator, Dave has also taken on contract work as a Recollective Affiliate on some of the most recent City of Vancouver Sustainability analyses under the Sustainable Large Development process, completing the Solid Waste Strategy for Rogers Arena West Tower and for Heather Place, as well as helping to complete the overall Heather Place Sustainable Large Development Report, coordinating Architectural, Landscape, Traffic, Civil and Energy Engineering as well as Community Connectivity strategies such as Food Systems, Access to Nature and Zero Waste.
