Stephanie Fargas | Calgary

Stephanie became a DIALOGer in 2011 and is now recognized by her peers as an emerging leader in specifications. She is one of the youngest female RSW in Canada. Stephanie has a wealth of experience and leadership in specifications for material product research, as well as preparing project manuals for a variety of project sectors across Canada and the United States. As part of the specifications group, Stephanie is responsible for conducting research, evaluating materials/products, mentoring staff, and facilitating communication amongst the various project participants.

Stephanie obtained her Registered Specification Writer (RSW) designation in 2019 with her research focus on embodied carbon building materials. Stephanie is passionate about sustainability. She is committed to guiding material transparency and embodied carbon. Some of her proudest work has been on projects pursuing LEED®, WELL®, and Envision™ certifications. Stephanie led the research and development of specifications for our (and Canada’s!) first Living Building Challenge: the Bill Fisch Forest Stewardship and Education Centre.

Stephanie brings a refreshingly creative approach to specification writing and is able to capture and transform design intent into clear, precise specifications.
