Construction Specifications Canada (CSC) has elected Alumicor’s Steve Gusterson to the College of Fellows. On May 4, he was honored for his achievements and inducted into the fellowship.
According to CSC, “Fellowship is an honor conferred on members singled out for their dedication, service and long-standing contribution towards the betterment of the design and construction community.” The College of Fellows acts as a resource for the organization’s executive council and board of directors and provides input and guidance in the direction and operations of the association.
Gusterson has held numerous roles in his many years with Alumicor and currently serves as the company’s vice president of sales for the central region. Based in Toronto, he works most closely with design teams and customers in Ontario.
“There’s nothing more rewarding than working with a design team; being a part of the conversations that help them realize their sometimes challenging goals,” said Gusterson. “From schematic design through construction documentation and the final build, it’s incredible to see or to visit the final result knowing that you played a part, albeit very small, in its creation.”
Throughout his career, Gusterson has remained an active member of CSC. He has volunteered on numerous CSC committees during more than two decades of involvement and has served as the Toronto Chapter’s chair and director. He is a Certified Technical Representative (CTR) and the CTR coursework instructor for the Toronto Chapter. CSC twice recognized his leadership with a Chapter Award of Merit and presented him with a Programme Director’s Award for his contributions to the education program. He also assisted with creating the Ontario version of the “British Columbia Glazing Systems Specifications Manual,” which became the basis of the 2010 national version that is still referenced today.
