Glenn Duxbury, CHI, QAO,
Technical Specialist

I worked in the renovation and construction industry for a number of years after completing high school in 1975 and some post-secondary education at Pacific Vocational Institute and the British Columbia Institute of Technology (“BCIT”).

Over many years since the late 1970’s, I have renovated and added-onto the family home in New Westminster.

My knowledge with homes and properties continued to grow and grow.  Friends and neighbours would come to me with needs and seeking answers for their own needs and continue to do so.

Eventually, my career led to working in Property Management, which I did for some 12 years from the late 1980’s, until 2000.  In this capacity, I continually learned from engaging trades and technicians for the portfolio of properties I was responsible for.  I also began documenting deficiencies on a large range of homes, strata properties and commercial buildings.

In 2002, after earning my Certification through the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of British Columbia (“ASTTbc”) as a Certified Home Inspector (“ASTTbc-PI”), after my required BCIT training, I opened Glenn Duxbury & Associates-Building Inspection and Consulting.  This is a professional business wholly-owned by me and all work completed by the firm has been done under my supervision.  The Business was Incorporated in 2013 and thus became Duxbury & Associates-Building Inspection and Consulting Ltd.

The firm has provided a broad scope of services to home buyers and home owners over the many years as a Property Consultant including Quality-Control, Home and Building Investigations, Trouble-Shooting Problems and Worries, Warranty-Checks, Documentations for Litigation, Deciphering Reports, Project and Renovation-Planning, Evaluations of Completed Work, Assistance to Legal Counsel (including expert witness testimony), as well as Inspections for Home and Property Buyers and Sellers of properties.

Over these recent years, I have also worked closely with Professional Engineers and at least one Professional Quantity Surveyor, assisting them with collecting data in the field on a number of important investigations for formal Reports to be rendered.

I have served for many years on the Board of my professional association – since 2003 as a Director-at-large, Secretary /Treasurer and most recently as Vice-President since 2006.  I continue to mentor and assess new candidates into their intended careers in home inspections, in order to maintain standards to the highest level.

I have written articles and have been published – Vancouver Sun and other print media, such as Business in Vancouver and Black Press.   I have also been repeatedly interviewed for CBC Television and Radio [CKNW & CBC] as an ‘Expert’ on renovation issues as a property /real estate Consultant…

I have prepared detailed reports for litigation and deficiency purposes and also deciphering big Reports for Strata Corporations and Co-Op Boards with their needs as administrators.  I have previously been accepted as an expert witness by the Provincial Court of British Columbia, as well.
