After seven years with the “flock”, Tyler MacFarlane has been appointed vice-president of civil operations at Bird Mechanical Ltd.
“As the company expanded into multi-trade services, Tyler was a pivotal member of the team. He joined the flock in 2015 as a resource manager, bringing with him extensive, comprehensive industry experience,” the company said in a statement.
In 2018 Bird Mechanical acquired R.G. MacDuff and Tyler transitioned into a general manager role with R.G MacDuff. The companies amalgamated this year and Tyler was promoted to the vice-president role.
To streamline services and increase operational efficiency, the civil team at R.G. MacDuff Contracting Ltd. was amalgamated with Bird Mechanical and Tyler moved into the new role of VP, Civil – looking after all civil and general contracting operations.
“Tyler has the essential leadership abilities to direct and manage a diverse team including subcontractors and multi-trade services,” the company stated. “He is an efficient manager who effectively completes projects on-time and on-budget. He is skilled at cost estimates, budgets, productivity and schedules.
“Tyler is able to clearly communicate and direct various scopes of work and technical information to his team, subcontractors and on-site personnel.”
