Adrian Hannam P.Eng. MCPM

Adrian is an accomplished Professional Mechanical Engineer and Principal of GreatPacific. As a results-oriented Engineer and Project Manager, he enjoys seeking innovative solutions to challenging projects. He has over fourteen years’ experience designing, building, managing, remediating and consulting upon both land and marine based infrastructure projects locally and internationally. These projects have involved the site/structural inspections (including ropes access), forensic evaluation and identification of failure modes (extreme loading, cyclic and fatigue failure, corrosion and wear), development of remediation plans to return structures to service and extend service-lives, and then putting the plan into effect with the management and delivery of onsite construction works.


Combined with being a capable mariner, the significant amount of remote projects he has managed permit him to plan and deliver marine projects from pursuit to closure. Adrian effectively couples his experience with risk identification and mitigation skills, and collaboratively works to provide value and pragmatic solutions. Clients benefit from Adrian’s straight forward attitude and effective communication style. His experience with tools, materials, and logistics combined with a caring attitude and leadership skills permit him to be an effective manager of all phases of project delivery.
