Brian has been practicing architecture as a principal since 2002. Since that time, he has developed a special expertise in designing in Northern BC with the associated critical contextual considerations. This has naturally led to a heightened interest and expertise in sustainability, resulting in LEED® Silver and Gold projects in Fort St. John, BC.

Tony obtained his Bachelor of Architecture degree at the University of Manitoba and a Master's degree in Urban Planning at the University of British Columbia. He has practiced across western Canada for over 40 years, and contributes to the community by volunteering on several advisory planning commissions and advisory design panels across Greater Victoria. Tony's focus has always been on architectural design, and has expanded with experience to encompass presentation skills, User Group interaction and Functional Programming.  Working with a balanced portfolio of public/private sector clientele, he brings a flexibility of approach to each distinct project type.
