Rosanne Moss joined Julia Gersovitz Architects in 1983, became a partner in 1988 and one of the founding partners of FGMDA in 1995. Her academic background includes a Theatre Design Diploma from the National Theater School of Canada, a Bachelor of Architecture from McGill University (1980) and a Master’s Degree in Conservation from the Université de Montréal (1998).

As a leading specialist in the field of heritage conservation with extensive expertise in the restoration and rehabilitation of historic interiors, she has worked on several large heritage projects, including the West Block, Parliament Hill in Ottawa, and the Harbour Master’s Building (now 357c) in Montreal. Other conservation projects include Montreal’s F.A.C.E. School Auditorium, the Church of St. John The Evangelist, St. George’s Anglican Church, Douglas Memorial Hall, Victoria Hall and the Westmount Library.

Rosanne has led numerous heritage district studies and authored architectural integration guidelines for institutions and heritage character districts in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. These include the Sandy Hill District Heritage Study (Ottawa); the University of Toronto’s St. George Campus Heritage study, and Queen Street West District Heritage Study (Toronto). She also directs the residential architectural department within FGMDA, with particular focus on heritage properties such as the Percy Nobbs house in Montreal.

From 2002 to 2008, Ms. Moss taught third year Design Studio students at the McGill School of Architecture, in collaboration with colleagues Julia Gersovitz and Georges Drolet. She has been a popular guest lecturer for the Home Renovation course at Heritage Montreal for a number of years, as well as a guest speaker on various conservation tribunes, at the 2010 Heritage Canada Conference in St. John’s, Newfoundland and at the 2014 APT Conference in Quebec City.

As President of CAHP, and with the valuable participation of the Executive and Board and fellow members, Rosanne looks forward to bringing to fruition several important ongoing initiatives, including finalizing the CAHP handbook, refining the criteria for membership and accreditation in CAHP, strengthening our relationship to various levels of government, and finalizing the design and implementation of the new CAHP website.

As the Managing Principal of Metropolitan Design Ltd. since 2014 and as Architect, Urbanist, and Heritage Planner, Don brings over 35 years of consulting experience to his public and private sector clients.  Don is committed to social/cultural, environmental and economic sustainability, aging-in-place planning and an innovative and creative approach to design challenges, characterized by a collaboration and inclusion. Don recently completed a Graduate Certificate in Cultural Heritage Management from the University of Victoria and he has been an Adjunct Instructor at Ryerson University’s Chang School lecturing in various aspects of Heritage Conservation practice.  Don is currently in his second term on the Board of Directors of Heritage Toronto as well as the CAHP Board where he has been Chair of the Architectural Awards Committees for both organizations. Current projects are the structural stabilization and restoration of a 1903 Muskoka cottage, a new, fully accessible private resident for a client confined to a wheelchair, and the disassembly and reassembly of the JSRH Machine Shop, as part of the Toronto Hydro Copeland Transformer Station project.

After graduating from U of T with B.A. in 1969 and from UBC with a B. Arch, in 1973, with a term at the Beaux Arts in Paris, Don worked in Vancouver and Toronto. He joined Basic Design Assoc. as Principal Architect in 1979 in Sussex N.B and during that time was given the New Brunswick Heritage Award for the restoration of an 1885 commercial building.  He also worked in Saint John on the Market Square project and with a local firm to complete the Trinity-Royal HCD, the first in Canada.  In 1988 Don joined The Toronto Harbour Commission as Development Manager, overseeing over 1000 acres of THC waterfront land holdings including the East Bayfront and Cherry Quays redevelopment plans as well as facilitating Jeff Stinson’s important, “The Heritage of the Port Industrial District” report.  In 1991 Don joined Hotson Bakker Architects as Managing Director of the Toronto office in the Gooderham and Worts complex where he helped develop an inventory and redevelopment master plan for the reuse of this iconic heritage resource. At the same time he completed the Revitalization Study for Allan Gardens.  His 20 year involvement in the John Street Roundhouse (JSRH) began in 1995 as part of the MTCC expansion.  Don completed the inventory, assessment, disassembly and reassembly planning for10 bays and the restoration of the exterior of the remaining 22 bays.  Joining IBI Group in 2001 as Senior Associate, Don continued working on the JSRH to rehabilitate and reuse the remainder of this National Historic site. Don was also lead heritage planner for GO Transit for the Union Station Train Shed rehabilitation and master planning.  Other projects included the Yorkville-Hazelton HCD Plan, the St. Thomas Railway Heritage Centre, the Bradford Station for GO Transit, the1908 High Falls Generating Station in Bracebridge, the Heritage Conservation Plan for Ottawa’s Government Conference Centre with BPA Architects, and the London Psychiatric Hospital reuse plan and Blackfriar’s/Petersville HCD, both with Golder Associates. Don’s most recent work with IBI included The Battle of Lundy’s Lane Commemorative Archway in Niagara Falls and the Corten steel interpretive screens for the Copeland Transformer Station.

When Gerry returned to university to study structural engineering in 2003 it was with the long-term goal of working on heritage properties. Armed already with a practical knowledge of wood construction after working as a carpenter for more than 6 years, he brought his enthusiasm for people and love of science together to begin assembling a career focussed on preserving and restoring heritage structures. He has worked at Tacoma Engineers since his graduation in 2008, and has had the pleasure of working on more than 100 heritage properties, ranging in size from small stone farmhouses to multi-building government compounds. He has presented and co-presented at numerous conferences and seminars, bringing the perspective of the structural engineer to a field traditionally dominated by the preservation of aesthetics rather than structure.

Gerry loves to learn about what people are really interested in, what actually gets people excited to get up and interact with heritage. Whether it’s a crumbling building or an historic landscape, he loves to dive deeply into the stories and histories that connect people with places, and the past with the present. When not crawling through an attic or climbing scaffolding on a tower, he divides his time between tying up skates, renovating houses, and producing podcasts.

Member, Nomination Committee

Tom Morrison is principal engineer of Heritage Standing Inc, a firm dedicated to working with existing and historic structures.

Specializing in historic structures early in his engineering career Dr. Morrison obtained his Master’s degree from the only engineering program focused on the structural engineering aspects of building conservation.  Following work periods in public and private sectors Dr. Morrison returned to study the use of more advanced earthquake analysis tools on existing structures.  This lead to his Doctorate in structural engineering evaluating and then developing modifications to existing steel structures to improve their resistance to earthquakes.

Returning to the private sector, Dr. Morrison founded Heritage Standing Inc.  He is an Expert Member of the ISCARSAH international scientific committee, and has participated in an international mission to provide engineering expertise for UNESCO.  He is also Co-Chair for the Preservation Engineering Committee of the Association for Preservation Technology.  In his current position he is working with a range of historic structures to provide engineering services.  He is passionate about old buildings and the unique engineering puzzles they create.
