The firm is a design oriented practice with ongoing involvement and interest in the area of affordable housing, special-needs, institutional, corporate/commercial and residential projects.
Established in 1988; projects vary in type and scale, new construction and renovation/addition projects. New construction projects include affordable housing, shelters, educational facilities and financial institutions; challenging renovation and addition projects include group homes/residential care facilities, institutional, educational facilities, heritage banks, various commercial and corporate projects, conversion projects for artists' studios and cultural facilities projects, and a variety of custom residential work. Many projects have incorporated extensive adaptation for Barrier-Free accessible design.
Our approach is a participatory and collaborative effort with our clients. It is the objective and experience of our firm, that while working within the constraints of budget and schedule, we are able to achieve appropriate solutions with an emphasis on quality design.
We have worked closely with boards and individual clients from project inception through programming, conceptual design, design development and construction phases. We have been involved in dealing with community based committees and end-users, and have extensive experience in negotiations with authorities at municipal and provincial levels.
We are committed to providing personal and high
quality service with the greatest attention to design, technical and administrative
details. The firm brings energy, enthusiasm and creative innovation to
projects, ensuring an approach specifically and uniquely tailored to the
special needs presented by each client group.
