Jim – Operations and CEO
I’m Jim and the founder of BOS&S. Before this I was an Industrial Engineer and consultant and spent the last 20+ years working with companies to make things better. I’ve worked in industries from jet engines to service companies to craft breweries. Now I get to work for my own company finding ways to do things better for my customers.
As a kid I can remember spending many hours in my grandfather’s workshop which was a simple wood structure. In that workshop using his lathe and hand tools he created wonderful wooden objects from plant holders to stock cube dispensers, everything he made had to have both form and a useful function. It was in that workshop I developed my love of working with wood and other materials to make things of use. Now working with wood, metal, glass and even plastics I get to create spaces of use where you get to choose what you want to create.
Ben – Engineering brains
Ben is the Engineer behind our designs. Ben is technically a Building Envelope Engineer, he is the guy you find abseiling down Vancouver apartment buildings inspecting window installation and writing up what the construction company should have done or designing buildings to be energy efficient anywhere in Canada.
Ben spent his youth working with his dad Dave a carpenter and knows his way around a construction site. Ben knowing both sides of the business only wants work done one way, the correct way.
