Senior Architect
Gary Smith

Gary is originally from Ontario. Drawing was his passion, so architecture school was a logical choice at the time. After graduating from Carleton University, Gary headed north to Yellowknife for a number of years, where he worked on secondary schools and community health centre projects.

From there, Gary moved to the Yukon and started a family. He eventually made his way to Vancouver Island, where he became involved in industrial shipyard work, personal service tenant improvements, new private school facilities, and multi-family rental housing. Since joining Thinkspace, Gary has had a chance to hone his healthcare architecture skills.
