Art JOHNS, Engineer (1936-2006)
He was an fervent and proselytizing pipes-wires-and-beams sort of engineer who transformed one of Canada's largest firms and, in the process, rose to become its chairman
By Noreen SHANAHAN. Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
If Art JOHNS were a teacher and we were his students, he'd stand before us with a piece of chalk in his hand and the first word he'd write on the blackboard would be "Engineer." He'd be a patient teacher, guiding us with his knowledge rather than attacking our ignorance.
But Art JOHNS wasn't a teacher, he was an engineer and former chairman of the Canadian consulting firm Morrison Hershfield who spent an enormous amount of time dusting off the engineer image and guiding it into the light from beneath the shadow of the architect. Pipes, wires, and beams may not be as pretty as the building itself, he'd likely say, but they are the stuff that keep the works working and the public safe. And what is this thing, engineering?
"You're sitting in it. You just ate it. You were entertained by it," Mr. JOHNS once told an awards audience. "You drove in it. You may have flown in it. You ride in it. You wear it. You listen to it and talk into it. You drink it and you breathe it. It warms you and it cools you. It's everywhere you live."
According to Ron Wilson, Morrison Hershfield Chief Executive Officer and Art JOHNS's successor, Mr. JOHNS took the profession's responsibilities very seriously. "Engineers have a duty to protect the public, much like doctors have a duty to protect individuals from a health concern. Engineers probably save more lives than doctors and so, from a humanitarian perspective moving society forward and making it more successful, engineers play a very significant role. But most engineers tend to forget that, because they're down in the details, working out the problems."
Art JOHNS grew up in Scarborough, Ontario, as the son of British immigrants. His father, Charles, was from Manchester, while his mother, Josephine, was born in Belfast. His father had arrived in Canada with nothing, worked hard until he owned a parking lot in downtown Toronto and was determined that his son would get a good education.
Young Art did well in high school, where he excelled at football. The JOHNS family likes to tell a story about how he won the high school football finals on a decidedly soggy field. The team blasted to success at the same time that Hurricane Hazel blasted through Toronto in 1954. "They continued playing in mud and water, and only after the game was won did they realize how severe the storm really was," said his son, Brad JOHNS.
When it was over, he left arm in arm with Ruth MATHERS, his high school sweetheart, whom he married soon after graduation.
Mr. JOHNS attended the University of Toronto and in 1960 earned a degree in civil engineering. Two years later, he received his masters at the University of Illinois and began work for Morrison Hershfield.
Mr. JOHNS's greatest feat was also one of the first tests of his career. As a newly minted engineer, he was made responsible for the structural design and site supervision of the massive Medical Science Building at the University of Toronto. He was 29 years old.
According to Janet Jensen, marketing co-ordinator for Morrison Hershfield, Mr. JOHNS was scared to death by the huge responsibility and said it was as though he had been thrown into a deep pool. He was sustained, however, by the thought that the company's founders stood at the edge. He said they were ready to pull him out if necessary, but otherwise let him get on with the job. He soon became a principal in the firm.
Over the years, he also designed and inspected towers for Bell Canada, Canadian National and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation from coast to coast, and worked on the structural design of the Stratford Festival Theatre, the Memorial University Health Sciences Complex in Saint_John's, several Sears stores, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation head office in Ottawa, buildings at universities in Saskatchewan and Sudbury, plus large supermarkets for the Dominion and Steinberg's chains.
Understandably, his work demanded a great deal of travel. In 1967, he was closely involved in work on the Air Canada and Ontario pavilions at Expo in Montreal, and found himself on projects in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Sioux City, Iowa, as well as the Carmichael Falls Power Dam in Northern Ontario.
For all that, Art JOHNS was firmly rooted in the Toronto landscape during a time when the city was wildly expanding, architecturally. Among other projects, he engineered the Etobicoke Olympium complex and its Olympic-size pool, and handled the restoration of the Gardiner Expressway.
In his years at the firm he was, at various times, president, Chief Executive Officer and chairman. He played a significant part in the growth of the firm after 1986 and saw it triple in size, quadruple its revenues, and expand into the U.S. market. Today, it has nearly 600 employees in 11 offices across North America.
Art JOHNS received two important awards during his career -- a gold medal from Ontario engineers in 2002, and another from the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers in 2004. Most recently, he worked as an investigator and witness, providing expert testimony on construction and design. He appeared in pre-trials, discoveries, mediations and court on several occasions in Canada and the United States. He was also a strong supporter of a process called alternative dispute resolution, which is used to mediate construction disputes involving owners, designers, and contractors.
As a thinking man's engineer, he published a number of papers for the firm, including a study on the aftermath of the collapse of the World Trade Center in New York on September 11, 2001. "The safety and survival of people housed or working in our buildings will take priority over our chattels," he wrote. "Some will question the safety of all tall buildings and others will seriously reconsider whether or not the very top floors are indeed prestigious and premium space."
Like the engineer he was, Mr. JOHNS carefully regarded the whole picture and not just the towers. "The destruction extended beyond buildings to the utilities and infrastructure in Manhattan. Power, sewers, water mains, telecommunications, transit and road networks were disrupted. Fire safety for both the survival of structures and evacuation of people has now become different challenges for engineers."
According to the nominators for his 2004 award, Mr. JOHNS also influenced such practices as changes to building codes and promoted Canadian engineering skills in the global market.
Privately, he also sat on the board of directors and was chair of the procurement committee of Habitat for Humanity and was involved in building a house for the charity in Alliston, Ontario
Mr. JOHNS retired from Morrison Hershfield in 2005, after 44 years in the firm. Three days later, he was diagnosed with cancer. "Never write your last day of work in your day timer," he told his daughter, Linda PRINGLE.
Arthur Bartly JOHNS was born in Scarborough, Ontario in 1936. He died at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie, Ontario on October 24, 2006, after a nine-month battle with multiple myeloma. He was He is survived by his wife, Ruth, sons Brad and Scott, and daughter, Linda. He also leaves his sister, Rene, and grandchildren Andrew, Michaela, Schuyler, Liam, and Zachary.

Arthur JOHNS, 70: Engineer mentored young colleagues
He 'gave a lot to the profession'
Remembered as loving family man
By Thulasi SRIKANTHAN, Staff Reporter
It was a make-or-break moment for Arthur JOHNS.
He was 29 years old and relatively fresh on the engineering scene when his bosses told him he was going to be involved, in a huge way, in the biggest job their company had done in its 20-year history.
The Medical Sciences building at the University of Toronto needed to be built and someone was going to have to design its structure.
Years later, JOHNS would say it was because he was so "scared to death" that the project went so well. JOHNS would go on from that assignment to become one of Canada's most distinguished engineers, leaving his mark everywhere from the Gardiner Expressway to the Health Sciences complex at Memorial University in Saint_John's. Along the way, he would pick up the profession's top honours, receiving gold medals from the Professional Engineers of Ontario and The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers and the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
On October 24, the man who rose from a child of the Depression era to become the president of Morrison Hershfield died one day after his 70th birthday following a nine-month fight with multiple myeloma.
His death, though expected from cancer of the immune system's plasma cells, devastated his family, who described him as a loving man who would do anything for his family.
"He was my strength," said his son, Scott JOHNS. " You couldn't ask for a better father."
At work, colleagues are still grieving the loss of the man who guided the firm from a small Canadian company to a North American entity. A grief counsellor was brought in because JOHNS, who stayed on after retirement as a special consultant, was considered a mentor to many at the company.
"He was a passionate man who gave a lot to the profession," said Catherine KARAKATSANIS, senior vice-president at Morrison Hershfield Ltd.
"Because he was such a brilliant engineer and so strategic, he could solve technical problems through innovations and ingenious adaptations of existing engineering problems. These innovations advanced the practice of engineering in Canada."
JOHNS was born in Toronto on October 23, 1936, to Charles JOHNS and Josephine TEMPLETON, two immigrants from England and Ireland. He was the youngest of two children.
Though JOHNS didn't start off as the most studious lad, he buckled down to study as the years passed, becoming the first in his family to go to university.
"They were very proud of that," said his wife and high-school sweetheart, Ruth JOHNS.
It was when he was studying at University of Toronto that he would meet the men who would change his life: Carson MORRISON, Mark HUGGINS and Charlie HERSHFIELD. The University of Toronto professors would go on to hire the youngster at their company, where JOHNS would remain for more than 40 years.
"Those were his mentors and heroes," said his son, Scott JOHNS. "I think he was so successful in that company because he wanted their names to continue in the engineering industry."
Though he gave his heart and soul to the job, his wife, Ruth, remembered him as a very involved family man.
"He made time and he was always home in time to put the kids to bed and read them stories, help bath them."
If a high school soccer match or hockey game was being played, JOHNS made sure he made it out to see his children.
"He was always there for us, and I know he was incredibly busy with work," said his son. "Work was always important but I think family was first.
"He always made time for those important things."
It was a love that continued even as he grew older and become a grandfather.
"He would come to my son's baseball games or T-ball game; he came even though it was a 45-minute drive," his son added.
This was evident even after JOHNS became sick, his son said.
"His concern through this entire illness was my mom and how it was affecting our lives," he said.
"If he wasn't going to get back to where he was and couldn't do all the things he wanted to do, then he didn't want to be around because he felt he was a burden for my mother," he said. "Right up to the end, he was very unselfish."
Though engineering and his family were his primary passions, JOHNS was also an artist who loved to draw pictures of people and events.
"He did pictures of all of us at some point," said his son.
At work, JOHNS rose through the ranks quickly, inspired by a belief that engineering was about public service. Part of the reason for his father's success, the younger JOHNS said, is the way he treated people.
"I think it was the way he did business, with integrity and fairness. He wasn't a back-stabbing person, he didn't fight his way up the ladder. He did it with integrity and respect.
"He made decisions for the right reasons, not just to make money."
JOHNS also believed a key to success was being alert at serendipitous moments. A work colleague offered this statement JOHNS wrote some time ago: "In order for serendipity to take place, people have to have their antenna up and tuned in at all times, because 'valuable and agreeable' things are often fleeting opportunities. Sometimes, they just make you feel really good; other times, they can change your whole life, or, in a corporation such as Morrison Hershfield, they can create growth or new business opportunities."
JOHNS' style helped him win many fans at the firm, said colleague KARAKATSANIS.
"He always took the time to help, listen and pass on his knowledge and experience," she said. "He truly was a remarkable person, a very rare person."
In his later years, JOHNS was sought after to provide expert testimony at trials.
An annual Arthur B. Johns Scholarship is being created at the University of Toronto to assist a civil engineering student in need.
