About Terrace BC Canada - Acadia Mechanical's Home

Terrace and the surrounding Skeena Valley are located in a hybrid coastal-interior rainforest on the Skeena River, approximately 115 kilometres (71 mi) from its mouth at the Pacific Ocean. The lush forests in the area consist primarily of cedar, hemlock and balsam. Sediment deposits from glaciers over thousands of years ago have produced the natural terraces or "benches" around much of the city, which sits approximately 70 metres (230 ft) above sea level and just east of the Skeena and Kitsumkalum River confluence. The Hazelton Mountains are to the west of the city, while the Kitimat Ranges of the Coast Mountains are to the east. The area sits above an active fault line that runs north-south. The area also boasts several natural and developed hotsprings.

Terrace is a service community on the Skeena River in British Columbia, Canada. The Kitselas  people, a tribe of the Tsimshian Nation, have lived in the Terrace area for thousands of years. The community population fell between 2001 and 2006 from 12,109 with a regional population of 19,980 (Statistics Canada, 2001) to 11,320 and regional of 18,581 (Statistics Canada, 2006). The community vies with Prince Rupert as a regional hub for the northern coastal area. It is the seat of the Kitimat-Stikine Regional District.

Job Description for a Mechanical Designer

Mechanical designers usually work in an office setting, reviewing specifications and other data to develop mechanical layouts. Mechanical Designers typically have working knowledge of mechanical parts as well as computer-aided design (CAD) software, such as Auto Cad. Often mechanical designers may travel from a home office such as in Terrace BC to job sites or factories through out the North Coast in BC to measure physical dimensions for machinery and observe production lines.

Mechanical Designer Duties

Mechanical designers typically begin a project by meeting with project managers, engineers, and clients to understand the needs and requirements for a new product or mechanical system. For example, designers working on a project may consult engineers regarding which structural materials to use or clients regarding the projects efficiency requirements. Once materials and specifications have been determined, designers begin using CAD software to plan and develop models. This may include testing and modifying models under different conditions, such as temperature or humidity.

Once a preliminary model is set, mechanical designers may be responsible for presenting it to a project engineer. If the model is approved, designers may then finalize designs and send prints to the production department. Other duties may include reproducing and archiving designs.
