Since joining Stantec in 2009, I have been responsible for design, documents production and construction administration for two Toronto Police Services projects. I quickly merged into the Target Canada Program 9 months ago as a project coordinator (PC) for 25 newly renovated stores, and was able to fulfill the role and meet the program’s demanding expectations.
Prior to working at Stantec, I worked 5 years with Kearns Mancini Architects and was fundamental in leading the design and production contributions KMA made to our joint venture design group (Community Care Consortium - C3) for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. I was responsible for aspects of the design and documentation for the first phase (inpatient/outpatient facility completed in April 2008) of the project including detailed work on site plan approvals and mockups. For the succeeding phases (now complete), I was involved in user group consultations and the development of block schematic models being submitted to the Ministry of Health. Through my long-term involvement on the Camh project, I have gained much knowledge and understanding in the process of healthcare project implementation.
My design abilities are skillful and forward thinking and take into account client needs and the realities of technical and economic constraints. My work is always well thought out and resolved, and my documentation skills are clear and comprehensive. My team spirit, professional judgment and proactive work ethic has earned me the respect of colleagues and clients.
