We are excited to share an article that was published in the August 2019 edition of Award Magazine. Earning the cover of such a prestigious magazine was a real honour for the entire team at Thinkspace. This article gave us an opportunity to talk about what drives our design process and celebrate some of the amazing spaces we’ve been given the opportunity to create. Our thanks go out to Natalie Bruckner for writing such an engaging article, and the entire team at Award.
Thinkspace staff can now rely on in-house advice from two architects who have passed the Certified Professional course offered through the Engineers and Geoscientists BC and AIBC. Wentao Zhou and Andrei Filip have successfully demonstrated competence in code knowledge and familiarity with the procedures as outlined in the CP Manual, earning their CP designations. As architects with a strong knowledge of Canadian building codes and experience in the building construction industry, Wentao and Andrei are a great resource to Thinkspace staff on provisions of the BC Building Code and the Vancouver Building By-law.
Thinkspace Project Managers, Architects and Partners shared information, offered updates and discussed networked resource material and standardized office templates at an internal Construction Administration workshop. Most importantly, precedents and project experiences were shared to stress the importance of quality control and due diligence throughout the build portion of the Design and Construction process.
Thinkspace participated in the annual BCIT School of Construction and the Environment 2 day challenge. The event is designed to encourage collaboration between programs and provide participants with a real-world problem to solve. Ray Wolfe supported the challenge as a juror and a mentor.
