Disciplinary Notice: Patrick Anthony Triggs, Victoria, BC

Posted on 10 May 2017

Two Notices of Inquiry were issued to Mr. Triggs relating to two separate matters. The first matter was a referral from APEGBC’s Practice Review Committee related to Mr. Triggs structural and geotechnical engineering and the second matter related to a complaint APEGBC received from a client of Mr. Triggs regarding his conduct towards her. In lieu of proceeding to a disciplinary inquiry, Mr. Triggs agreed to a Consent Order dated April 13, 2017, resolving both matters. In the Consent Order, Mr. Triggs admitted that on two structural projects in Kamloops, BC, he failed to set out adequate detail in his design and failed to arrange to have his design independently reviewed. Mr. Triggs further admitted that on four geotechnical projects in Kamloops, BC, he failed to do field reviews during construction. Lastly, Mr. Triggs admitted to breaching principle 7 of APEGBC’s Code of Ethics, by failing to respond to a client during the period from August 2015 to November 2016. 

As part of the Consent Order, Mr. Triggs agreed to:
  1. The cancellation of his membership effective May 1, 2017; and
  2. Pay costs in the amount of $7,000 towards APEGBC’s investigation and inquiry costs.
