Architecture can’t wait for regulators to lead on sustainability

The Architect's Newspaper published an op-ed by Principal Don Schmitt encouraging fellow architects to lead by example and demonstrate that transformative climate solutions are within reach in the industry and emphasizes the firm’s commitment to sustainable design.

The article features our highly-sustainable projects including Manitou a bi Bii daziigae, Ādisōke, The New Vic at McGill University, and the Toronto Paramedic Services Multifunction Station.

"With urgent turning points for mitigating climate change drawing ever nearer, it’s time for the architecture field to take notice—and action."

"Design can provide the blueprint for policies and regulations that, when scaled up and applied in broader contexts, have the ability to stimulate high-impact sustainability innovations and urgently needed emissions reductions."
