In 2017 she became a Certified Technical Representative upholding a (CTR) designation through the Construction Specification Council of Canada.
Her career has over 10 years’ experience in the ICI sector. She sharpened her skills as an organized and detail minded coordinator with significant experience in operations, design development and variation changes for P3 projects while working at Vanbots/Carillion Canada from 2009-2013. She was involved in several key P3 bid projects, which led to her job site experience for document control and project coordination.

She was then recruited to the heavy equipment rental division at Toromont Cat, supporting the machine sales team, for rental sales of large earth moving Caterpillar equipment to major companies, in land development, mining, solar farms, and civil infrastructure projects. Once her contract ended in 2015, Luana was recruited to once again step back into the building side with Ontario Panelization, to take on an Architectural Sales position working with architects, specification writers, and engineers on providing preconstruction building envelope cladding material selection. Luana has now moved forward to expand her career with the Flynn Group of Companies, Northern Facades Ltd. Team, and has the privilege to work with many diverse and talented people across North America planning the future of our building landscape.
