Since its foundation in 1985, Ottawa architecture firm grc architects has steadily evolved with the innovative thinking, expanding technology, shrinking budgets and workplace changes that continue to pose fresh challenges in the world of design, building and renovation. With every new project, functional and economic imperatives are combined with high standards of design to create buildings that celebrate their human purpose without sacrificing practical concerns. grc architects’ success in consistently achieving this balance has brought many clients back for subsequent projects and can be attributed to the talent and versatility of the firm’s 25 architects and technologists, some of whom have been with the practice from the outset. This enduring resource of cumulative experience brings disciplined management to every project and results in well-considered, responsive designs that balance client expectations with budget and scheduling realities.Designed out as an open “studio,” the office reflects the cooperative nature of the firm’s approach to work and producing buildings that engage and fulfill contemporary community aspirations. The firm currently handles up to $70M of work annually with a portfolio that includes office buildings, corporate training centres, official and educational buildings, as well as warehouse, recreation, and operations facilities.
