Thanks to our amazing P3A staff for generously donating to Adopt-a-Family. The Z99 and Salvation Army initiative matches donors with families who require extra help at Christmas. P3A staff gave money, gifts, and food in support of two families. Pictured are Lauren, Meghan, Tamara and Tessa who organized and wrapped up the gifts.
P3A is pleased to welcome Dian Dela Santa as an Intern Architect! Dian began her education at SIAST Palliser Campus in Moose Jaw, receiving a diploma in Architectural and Building Technologies. With her passion for creating thoughtful designs and curiosity for how buildings go together she continued her education at Montana State University receiving a Bachelor’s in Environmental Design and Master’s in Architecture. Dian values the importance of collaborative design where all disciplines merge, integrating beauty and functionality.
Dian is also enthusiastic about projects that build communities together, and she involves herself in community projects that include hands on experience, such as Habitat for Humanity. Dian is grateful for being in a discipline where she can continuously improve design thinking from what she learns on site and building by hand.
Born and raised in rural Saskatchewan, Kelly holds a Diploma in Architectural Technologies from Saskatchewan Polytechnic in Moose Jaw. Kelly completed all of his co-op work terms with P3A and worked at the firm for a few years before moving to Victoria, BC. Now back in Regina, P3A is pleased to welcome Kelly back to P3A.
Kelly's passion for architecture has led him to volunteer in Asia where he was involved in the construction of a dormitory, children's school and a medical facility. His involvement and dedication have enhanced his knowledge and love for creating innovative and unique designs.
When he is not working, Kelly likes to spend time with his partner hiking, camping and walking their dog Iggy, drawing, curling and being involved within the community.
Welcome back, Kelly!
