Architects play an integral role in shaping the way we interact with our physical environment. We are passionate about designing buildings and environments using innovative design solutions.
A new two-storey office building designed for a 120 person engineering consulting firm. The unique building aesthetic was designed to address a modern corporate image and appeal to increased staff satisfaction and retention. Some amenities include, indoor courtyard, social area and galley-style kitchenette.
Energy consumption is 75% below NRCAN average and 71% below BOMA average for similar building type. Triple-glazed windows, a unique multi-zone mechanical system, building orientation, and clerestory lighting/atrium for daylighting contributed to this high-performance, energy efficient building.Project Portfolio >>
Located in Elkford's commercial and retail centre, The Elkford Community Centre creates a bold, unique statement for the community. A mixed-use spatial program provides ample space for Travel BC offices, a daycare facility, 300 person hall, small group class rooms and commercial grade kitchen. The use of Cross Laminated Timbers (CLT), glu-lam beams and structural insulated panels allowed for quick construction in a remote location and produced a high-insulating, energy-efficient building envelope.
The community centre was highlighted by BC Wood Council for innovative use of wood systems. It also received the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) Wood WORKS! Community Recognition Award.Project Portfolio >>
This project involved the retrofitting of a bowling alley into office space. A new building envelope was done to enhance energy efficiency and improve aesthetics. New mechanical and electrical systems were put in to reduce long-term operating costs for the client and improve sustainability by reducing carbon emissions. Spatial planning and 3D modeling allowed visioning for current needs and future growth.
A substantial capital asset valuation was realized; our client was able to purchase and renovate the building for less cost than constructing a new one. Efficient planning allowed for tenant space and additional revenue.Project Portfolio >>
