The North Bay Society of Architects has a page on their website that features "Awards and Recognition" for award winning northern projects. It's not surprising that numerous projects CFMS provided commissioning for made their list. These include:
There has been no shortage of news and press releases on the new Ottawa Public Library and Archives Canada Joint Facility since the design was released earlier this month. This week the Globe and Mail featured the project, titled 'Modern concept signals next chapter for Ottawa "super library"'.
Our first awarded project of 2020 was the new Trade School Building for Durham College's Whitby Campus. The 60,000 sf building will include shop areas, classrooms, food services, and administrative offices. CFMS' Jurij Dziuba is the project manager for this project, and is already ramping up getting an early start on the commissioning process.
York University's New Student Centre was featured in Building Magazine this week, and is praised for following the growing trend with University Student Centres for soliciting the input of those using the space - the students - to design buildings that meet their needs. CFMS was pleased to provide commissioning for such a vital addition to the York University Campus.
CFMS Consulting Inc. couldn't be more pleased to be providing commissioning for this prestigious project. The design by Diamond Schmitt Architects / KWC Architects was revealed today and it's simply stunning. The OPL and Library and Archives Canada are partnering to build the 216,000-square-foot facility that is targeting LEED Gold.
Today is the first day back to school after the holidays for many students across the GTA, but it's a special one at City Place Canoe Landing, as two long anticipated schools are opening for their first day of school. The schools are part of a larger project that includes a recreation centre and childcare - all much needed in this densely populated pocket of downtown Toronto. Mayor John Tory was there for the opening. You can read more about it in the Daily Hive.
Typically the winners of the OAA celebration of "Queen's Park Picks" are announced for World Architecture Day in October, but this year the winners were unveiled last night at Queen's Park. The winners are chosen from a list submitted by MPPs' favourite examples of excellent architecture in Ontario. CFMS was excited to see two projects we provided commissioning for on the list of eight winners.
This week Canadian Architect announced their award winners, and CFMS was excited to see a project we are providing commissioning for on the list: Thunder Bay Art Gallery Waterfront Relocation!
York University's newest campus addition - the Student Centre - was featured in ArchDaily! CFMS provided LEED Commissioning for this LEED Gold Certified building, that also meets Toronto Green Standards.
