By planes, trains, (autonomous) vehicles, bikes and paths, we get people where they want to go while treading lightly on our environment.

Transforming urban living

Population growth and the rising density of cities show no signs of stopping. We embraces today's challenge to imagine and create highly designed, vertical communities that are more welcoming, more sustainable and more comfortable for their occupants.  

There was something drawing me to this project. I had to try it, and I had to convince others that it was doable. For me, it’s been transformational. Absolutely transformational.

Reimagining how we learn

We plan and design education campuses and buildings that go beyond simply facilitating learning—they are active participants in the learning process. Student residences, labs, libraries and learning centres, administrative blocks — our spaces encourage collaborations and spontaneous interaction. They are welcoming, safe, flexible, durable and engages spaces for students of any age.

Raising culture to new heights

Soaring sight lines, fine-tuned indoor climates and accessibility. All must-have attributes that help the people engage with arts and culture. From highly designed civic spaces to museums and space for the arts, DIALOG creates inspiring spaces to connect, explore, and share. 

I think the space is so beautiful that it’s really exciting as dancers. It has this open feeling, which makes us open as artists to work with.

Taking care of each other

Now, more than ever, our front-line workers and first responders need facilities that allow them to work efficiently and effectively while keeping everyone safe and healthy.

With the windows, the natural light and the view of nature, it actually advances one's overall health, and the science is there to support it. So it’s impressive when you can actually use physical infrastructure to support health and to get people healthier quicker.

Building better communities

As our cities and towns grow, so too does our need to design sustainable communities that allow us to live, work, and play.

Challenging the status quo

We're redefining parks, pushing sustainability targets, and creating a world that everyone can enjoy.

Mass timber is comparable to conventional steel and concrete construction in terms of function, layout and constructability, but is more sustainable and creates a beautiful workplace.

Making work spaces work

With four generations in the workforce, one size doesn't fit all. We're designing flexible work spaces that cater to a variety of work styles and help get the task at hand done.

Our new office was designed with our future in mind and we are already seeing firsthand the benefits from clients and employees. Interestingly enough, most people don’t want to seem to leave once they arrive.
