Name: Sean Blackburn 

Title: Lead Electrician 

Years at TCA: 4 years

Years in the industry: 12 years

Favourite thing about your job: The variety! Every project and site is always different from the next, which keeps things interesting.

Favourite part of being on the TCA team: We really feel like a team; everybody gets along well. TCA is a really good company to work for, and I also really respect our boss, Sean Tobin. 

What do you find most rewarding about your work? 

I enjoy when a job goes really smoothly. It’s very satisfying when the clients are happy with how the end result turns out. 

What do you like to do in your free time? 

I like to try and stay active, and I love the outdoors, so I take a lot of walks and hikes with my dog. 

Favourite sports team(s): Hockey is my favourite, so I always try to catch the Canucks game!

Is there a particular type of project you prefer working on? If so, why? 

I like working night shifts because the hours are preferable for me; I’m able to get a lot more time to myself during the day. I also prefer to work on commercial electrical projects.

Is there a project you completed with TCA that stands out as a favourite? 

I really enjoyed working on 1639 West 2nd Street, which mostly consisted of night shifts. Overall, everything went smoothly, but some of the challenges included fixing old mistakes, such as ceiling tiles and loose connections we had to tighten down. The materials were also hard to get a hold of because I worked night shifts, while everyone else was working during the day. I also have a lot of overall respect for the building manager and company owner.
