October 15, 2012
October 15, 2012, marks an important milestone in our firm’s progress in British Columbia. On this date we are completing the transition that began in 2010 when we acquired Bunting Coady Architects and merged the firm with our existing Vancouver practice. Now, in accordance with regulatory directives, our team previously known as B+H BuntingCoady Architects is being rebranded B+H Architects. Our hospitality interior design team will retain their current name, B+H CHIL Design.
Our Vancouver practice is thriving as one of Western Canada’s leading architecture and interior design firms, renowned for designing buildings that are healthy, integrated and energy efficient. The practice has earned a strong position in the Vancouver market, and has received numerous awards for design quality and building performance. Recent examples include many awards, amongst them three top rankings from the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties, being awarded to Broadway Tech, a Canadian Architect Award of Excellence win for Heritage Mountain Middle School, the Shangri-La Vancouver being rated the #1 luxury hotel in Canada by TripAdvisor as well as having been awarded an exclusive and highly-coveted Five Diamond AAA rating, and a total of four B+H CHIL Design projects being ranked among the top 25 hotels in Canada by TripAdvisor.
To steer the Vancouver practice towards future success, Bruce Knapp will be leading the team in his role as Managing Principal. B+H is committed to maintaining the focus on sustainability that our Vancouver practice is so well known for and ensuring that it continues to integrate with our global operations. At the same time we will continue to thrill clients and guests alike with the most exciting and memorable hospitality environments. We thank our clients, employees, and industry partners for their contribution to our success thus far, and look forward to many more years of world-class projects lead by our team in Vancouver and our teams around the world.
