Young Tunneller of the Year

Michael Mains

Michael was born and raised in the small mountain town of Whistler, Canada.
With a Bachelor of Civil Engineering from McGill University and a Master of Civil Engineering from the University of British Columbia, Michael began his career performing project management, analysis, design and construction supervision across the transportation, water, and building sectors.

Since then, his passion for tunnelling has led him to work on some of the biggest projects in the world, across four different countries, practice in two languages, obtain multiple licensures, and bring that in valuable global experience back to his home country of Canada.

For the companies he has worked for, Michael not only assumes leadership roles on a project level but has a demonstrated history of leading internal working groups on various technical subjects and has written several internal company design manuals on a variety of tunnel related subjects.
