I love that the work we do engages people in so many different and profound ways — physically, spatially, socially and spiritually.
Detail-oriented and precise, Jay is a conscientious project manager, who has delivered facilities with some of the most strict technical and operational requirements. A creative and versatile architect, his designs strike the balance for public spaces that perform and delight.
Jay is experienced in all phases of design and construction for institutional, residential and commercial projects. He was Project Architect for the Steveston Fire Hall, recognized with a Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia Award of Excellence in 2015, as well as the UniverCity Childcare Centre, which is seeking Living Building Challenge status and referred to as ‘possibly the greenest childcare centre on the planet’.
Other notable projects includes Hillcrest Centre and Vancouver Fire Hall No. 17, currently under construction, which is targeting Passive House, LEED Gold, Net Zero Carbon (CaGBC) and Net Zero Energy (as defined by FCM).
He was awarded a RAIC Design Medal for his design thesis at Carleton University and worked in New York, Ottawa and Toronto before returning to Vancouver.
Jay has an enviable Hot Wheels collection and credits his three boys for keeping him at his mental and physical best.
