Architect AIBC, B.Arch, LEED™ AP

Mandy’s talent is getting everybody connected to a project and pointed in the same direction, moving in unison. She brings a diligent, proactive and follow-through approach. This results in achieving the best project delivery and professional integrity. She loves what she is doing because it turns dreams into reality.

With 25 years work experience in Canada, Mandy’s portfolio includes a wide range of experience in education, commercial, institutional, multiple residential and light-industrial projects. Prior to moving to Canada, Mandy obtained her bachelor degree in Architecture at Tong-Ji University, China, and worked three years at a firm in Shanghai while completing her internship.

Since joining thinkspace in 2009, Mandy has been an effective team leader and coordinator for various engineering disciplines involved in the projects. Her favourite project so far is University Hill Secondary School in Vancouver. It is a challenging job due to its complication of renovation and addition to an existing research facility, but the reward of being able to pull it together with a tight budget and schedule is priceless.
