My mother a ceramist and father a chemical engineer. I graduated in mechanical engineering but went on to get a degree in architecture since we still did not have industrial design in Quebec, my career wish. Started off with Bombardier Research Dpt. as a junior designer, later becoming chief designer at Sno*Jet, authoring 25 snowmobile models (including the legendary Thunder*Jet racing sled ) in 5 years. After our best racer was killed, I went to Finland to help develop the first unbreakable injected cross-country skis with Karhu, later building the Cowansville QC factory. I later worked for green energies with IREQ, a research branch of Hydro-Quebec where I also designed all 500 of the heliported service modules for the
very high-voltage lines from the James Bay to southern Quebec. I later developed the machinery and models to produce the first mobile homes manufactured from 6 giant size foam-injected panels from the world's largest press, a 80' x 12' x 16' toaster-like behemoth that fed a mile long assembly line from overhead trolleys. Panelized or fully assembled, these were sold from the Arctic to the Middle-East thanks to their rigidity and high insulation value. Then I founded my own company called Archimede Systems to develop and sell from a fresh patented idea of mine (USPO#4462191). This was 1981 when money was not available and real estate was dead, yet without spending a cent in advertising we sold 12 million in the second year, building a second factory a year later and soon exporting thousands of those stilt houses to 22 countries, mostly as ski resorts(Rockies) or beach resorts (Carribeans). I sold my Canadian patent to my partners and went on to refine the US patent inside a new plant in Los Alamos NM, building the Pajarito Mountain Ski Lodge, commercial and DOE buildings. Then I built a new factory in FL and another one in LA for exports to South America, delivering condos to Venezuela and other markets. Those were erected in a day and finished in less than a week, coming with everything including AC and appliances. We typically fitted 3 houses in two containers, usually a mix of 80,100,120 m2 size, of one or 2 stories. Upon retiring, I formed the Archimede non-profit Institute to provide exportable housing that can resist hurricanes, earthquakes floods and mudslides. Recently, after a conclusive study, I formed Baja6 in Mexico to design and export prefab housing that can resist all of the above but also including resistance to tsunamis (see www.baja6.com). I later went back into retirement when I could not raise enough local money for the project.
