It’s a big deal for intern architects to complete their internship and become a registered architect in British Columbia. Early in July, one of our intern architects, Osman Ozakcayli, completed all of the necessary requirements and is now registered! We thought it would be fun to hear some thoughts on architecture from this new Architect AIBC.
It can be easy to take things for granted, especially when you see them every day. Case in point – the ficus tree that made its home in the staff kitchen of the Thinkspace Surrey studio for most of the last decade.
This past year has been a challenge for most companies due to COVID-19, and Thinkspace is no exception. But we’ve learned some valuable lessons in the process, and are actually finding ways to thrive in this new normal.
On April 30, 2021, Dayna Wlasoff in Thinkspace’s Surrey office became a Registered Professional Planner (RPP). The designation is the end product of a long journey that started nearly a decade ago with a bachelor's degree in Architectural Science, led to a master’s degree in Planning, and eventually culminated in the rigorous RPP certification requirements, which included two years of work experience, a one-year mentorship, an ethics course and exam, and finally the professional exam.
We’re very pleased to announce that the Auto Canada dealerships project in Pitt Meadows has just received development permit (DP) approval after nearly three years. The approval is a major accomplishment for the project team, which includes more than a dozen collaborators.
