HALIFAX, NS, APRIL 20, 2023/insPRESS/ – EFI Global, a leading, full-service international consulting firm specializing in forensic engineering, environmental, fire investigation and specialty consulting services, welcomed two new members to its forensic engineering and fire investigation team in Atlantic Canada: Glenn R. Bartlett, P.Eng., CFEI, based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Corey J. Stewart, P.Eng., CFEI, based in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia.
Bartlett has over 10 years of experience as a professional engineer and project manager, providing services for commercial building infrastructure, municipal infrastructure electrical support, terminal station design and retrofit, and industrial electrical solutions. His years of field experience helped him develop a practical, hands-on approach to solving problems. Bartlett’s expertise includes a strong electrical background and training in electrical failure analysis and root cause determination for fire origin and cause investigations. He holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John’s.
Stewart brings to EFI Global more than a decade of experience as a mechanical engineer; his career started in consulting, and he later transitioned to the manufacturing sector. As a consultant, he worked on a variety of projects, notably several dry fire sprinkler system replacements in healthcare settings, where he was involved in the inspection, data analysis, code review and quoting process. Stewart has also assisted in the inspection and certification of dozens of lifting devices, including cranes, boom trucks and jib cranes. Most recently, Stewart has applied his knowledge to the fire origin and cause discipline.
Stewart received his diploma in engineering from St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and completed a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering at Dalhousie University in Halifax.
