Experience

As a registered architect in the Province of Ontario, my expertise lies in the areas of preserving and restoring buildings, specifically assessing their existing conditions for future use and developing plans for their re-use or adaptive reuse. My heritage focus in regards to these buildings is two fold; the first is to educate and develop a strategic plan for owners to restore the exterior envelope of the buildings: foundations, wall systems, windows and doors, and roof in order to preserve the building for the long term from the elements. The second is to develop an internal plan and building system in order that a use may be incorporatedthat will sustain the building's newly revived life for years to come.
