He was with the constructor of the project for a two-year period and supported the US$1.7 billion first phase of the project which was a 12.5 km (7.8-mile) corridor across 13 stations. Most recently, Conrad served as Director of Communications at CABA (Continental Automated Buildings Association), an industry not-for-profit focusing on advanced technologies in homes and buildings. He also worked for 5 years in research and communications at the University of Ottawa, Telfer School of Management.
