Nebojsa Ojdrovic founded Ojdrovic Engineering Inc. after 20 years of university teaching and consulting practice. He is responsible for the management and co-ordination of multi-disciplinary projects. His strengths include collaborative cooperation with architects, mechanical and electrical engineers, interior designers, and other consultants and stake holders. For most of the projects he is responsible for the overall supervision and conceptual guidance of investigations, feasibility, assessment, and structural and seismic design. Nebojsa recently participated as a specialist lecturer in three seasons of collaborative engineering and architectural design studio at the University of Toronto. For the last 18 years, Nebojsa has participated in investigative and design work for the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. He is the Principal in charge of the West Block Parliament Building Rehabilitation Project. His responsibilities include communication with stakeholders, the multi-disciplinary team of consultants, the Client, the House of Commons representatives, and others. He has prepared and delivered a number of presentations and participated in many meetings and workshops in Canada and abroad related to this project. Aside from his expertise in heritage engineering, he was a principal in charge of several new demanding structures. The most notable one is the West Block Parliament Building courtyard infill structure in Ottawa where his versatility in solving difficult and unusual engineering problems was utilized. The House of Commons will be temporarily located in the courtyard during the rehabilitation of Centre Block. The complex and unusual infill structure consists of a space truss roof assembly, ornamental structural steel tree-like columns supported on Level 2 steel framing, and a steel moment frame and perimeter reinforced concrete walls down to the bedrock at level B2. A new 65,000 square foot primary school, two 220 bed long term care homes, a church, a banquet hall, and several school additions show the diverse nature of Nebojsa’s engineering skills.
