GOING FOR GOLD

Ending three years of design, construction and fit-up, 395 Terminal Avenue at the Ottawa Train Yards was fully occupied in early February.  Prominently located adjacent to Ottawa’s iconic VIA Train Station, our newest office tower is strikingly visible from the Queensway. This eight storey office building was finished on-time and under-budget owing to a successful team effort with Ron Engineering and Ottawa Train Yards Joint Venture.  The narrow form of the building provides access to daylight for every occupant, sets a new standard for workplace comfort and productivity, and contributes to its candidacy for LEED Gold.

We’ve Had a Busy Year

In April 2012 David McRobie announced expansion of ownership of the firm to include colleagues William Crompton, James Salem and Tony Fuso. Christopher Deimling and Jill Sparling were appointed as Associates joining Johanna Garwood.

In June 2012 Bill Crompton traveled to St. John’s, Newfoundland, where he was inducted as a fellow in the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) during the institute’s annual conference. This honour recognizes Bill’s many years’ service as an ORSA board member as well as mentor to OAA interns and an educator in the RAIC’s Syllabus Program. Congratulations Bill, FRAIC!
