Hamilton, ON – Diamond Schmitt is pleased to announce that Principal Jennifer Mallard has been selected as one of nine new members for the Hamilton Design Review Panel (DRP) for the 2021-2024 term.

Panel members will provide recommendations and advice to planning staff regarding the design of proposed development projects within the Design Priority Areas, including the downtown, west harbour, primary city corridors and other areas experiencing transformational change.

Jennifer Mallard is a Principal at Diamond Schmitt with over 30 years of experience in the design of public buildings, including performing arts centres, libraries and educational institutions. She is dedicated to collaboratively managing complex projects and skilled at driving large, specialized teams towards a focused common goal. This approach positions her clients at the centre of a process that is fuelled with energy, commitment and enthusiasm and carefully considers all architectural and programmatic objectives.

Jennifer is a talented designer with a proven track record for elegant and functional projects which can be exemplified with her portfolio of work, notably her project for the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, the Shakespeare Theatre in Washington and the Daniels Spectrum Arts and Culture Centre in Toronto.

“I have a deep appreciation for Hamilton and its history. Both of my parents’ families settled in Hamilton upon immigration to Canada in the early 1900’s. I was born in Hamilton, and grew up in Ancaster and Dundas.” said Jennifer Mallard, Principal, Diamond Schmitt. “I have been fortunate to work on a variety of significant public buildings, shaping their civic spaces and their impact on their environments. Each of these projects engages the life of its surroundings in different ways, but all are part of a civic engagement process that is essential to the creation of vibrant cities. I’m honoured to contribute to the conversation about the future of the City of Hamilton.”
