P3A was honoured with two awards at this year’s Building Saskatchewan Green conference, a celebration of sustainable building in the province. Arcola Community School won the top award for architecture and the City of Regina Fire Hall No. 4, which is LEED Gold Certified, received an honourable mention. P3A is proud to be a leader in sustainable design and congratulations are due to the project teams, engineering consultants, and clients for their contributions and commitment to sustainability.
P3A is proud to announce that Brad Pickard has completed the requirements for registration with the Saskatchewan Association of Architects. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Manitoba before completing his professional degree at Dalhousie University.
Brad has demonstrated a commitment to the profession and to his community. He was a representative on the Canadian team for the Venice Biennale 2012, an international design exposition; he taught community building and design in Gambia; and worked with First Nation’s communities as a volunteer, instructor, and design/build leader. He also helped found the Regina Advocates for Design.
The U of R Gateway has been nominated and short listed for the 2014 Saskatchewan Construction Association Award for Innovative Project Under $10m. This is a special year for the SCA and for the awards, as it is the 50th Anniversary of the SCA. James Youck, Partner-in-Charge, and Brad Pickard, Project Lead, will be joining the University of Regina, Ritenburg and Associates, Crosby Hanna, and Westridge Construction at the event on October 23rd in Saskatoon. Congratulations to the team, which also included local artist Lorne Beug, representatives of the Wascana Centre Authority, BBK Engineering and a remarkable group of sub-trade contractors that made this engaging and sculptural work come alive! Good luck to the team, and thank you from P3A for your contributions.
P3A congratulates Deb Christie on her retirement. Prior to joining P3A in 2009, Deb had a successful career with the Ministry of Government Services and the Ministry of Education. She was also a founding partner of Planned Commercial Interiors, a well-known Saskatchewan interior design company. Throughout her time at P3A, Deb shared her expertise with staff and contributed to a range of projects.
We wish Deb and her family the best of luck in her retirement, and thank her for her contributions to P3A.
James Youck was invited to speak at this year's International Facilities Management Association Day at the DoubleTree in downtown Regina, which focused on the theme of environmental stewardship.
James’ presentation, "LEED Lessons Learned", focused on the need for holistic sustainable design practices that transcend third party rating systems. Change last sentence: Three P3A projects were used as case studies: Research and Innovation Centre, Arcola Community School and City of Regina Fire Hall No.4.
P3A is proud to announce that Arcola Community School has been chosen as one of the top institutional projects in the country in the 17th Annual Best of Canada Design Competition hosted by Canadian Interiors. 21 projects were chosen out of 173 entries in 8 categories (Office, Institutional, Hospitality, Residential, Retail, Exhibits, Marketing, and Product Design).
We would like to congratulate Regina Public Schools on their continued commitment to design for the creative age and community involvement which was instrumental in the realization of this project.
