Macnab has been involved in the construction of earth retention and deep foundation projects since 1973. These projects have been implemented throughout North America, including eastern and western Canada, the northeastern states, Rocky Mountain states, and the West Coast. He has traveled extensively, reviewing construction techniques in North America, Europe, Asia, and the South Pacific. He is a frequent speaker on issues involved in these specialties to engineering, academic, and supervisory personnel and has written extensively on these topics.
