Construction and Project Management
University of British Columbia, 2009, BCom

Paul Save was a part of the inaugural group of Sustainable Building Science Program. He holds a BCom 09′ and MASc ’14 degrees from University of British Columbia

His thesis explores the Campus as a Living Lab program at UBC and the replicability of it as a tool to expedite the adoption of sustainable technologies for campus and municipal infrastructure. Part of this exploration involved developing and amalgamating business process models for current practices at UBC, and conducting a 16-month long ethnographic study to extract key transferable characteristics for replicability. The research culminates in a series of comprehensive and generic business process models that illustrate what is required to develop and maintain a Campus as a Living Lab program. 

During his masters, Paul co-founded two companies and led the development of software for the depreciation report market. Paul is currently working as a product manager in software development and you can contact him through LinkedIn:
