DIALOG Unveils New Studio in the Historic Revillon Building
Preserving a part of Edmonton's history and committing to the city's resurgent downtown
EDMONTON, Sept. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Founded in Alberta in 1961 and established in Edmonton since 1984, DIALOG is one of Canada's largest fully integrated architectural, engineering, interior design, urban planning and landscape architecture firms. With over 500 employees in four studios across the country, DIALOG has moved its Edmonton studio even closer to the City's centre as it continues to grow.
"We are thrilled to be able to move into the dynamic 104th street neighborhood," says DIALOG Edmonton's Studio Managing Principal Darrell Halliwell. "The Revillon building is an important part of Edmonton's downtown history and we are pleased to be able to preserve and repurpose this space. DIALOG has been working in this city for 30 years and we are proud to make our commitment to a resurgent downtown in one of Canada's most dynamic cities."
DIALOG's new Edmonton studio totals 28,000 sq. ft. and is located on 104th street in the historic Revillon building. Formerly used as a warehouse facility, the Revillon building first opened its doors in 1912 and has been a witness to the growth of Edmonton ever since.
"DIALOG's re-purposing of this historic building on 104th street is another great project in the downtown; a place truly becoming the heart and soul of our city," Edmonton Mayor Stephen Mandel comments. "I want to thank the whole DIALOG team for their commitment and creativity and wish them great future success."
DIALOG's integrated team has contributed to the city's growth through the design of projects such as the Francis Winspear Centre for Music, Kaye Edmonton Clinic, Northlands Exposition Hall, Edmonton Valley Zoo Entry and Wander Project and the Capital City Downtown Plan. DIALOG is currently working on projects in Edmonton including the new Royal Alberta Museum, Kelly Ramsy Office Tower, Arena Lands District, the new Edmonton Arena and Walterdale Bridge Replacement.
"DIALOG has been fortunate to be able to help make Edmonton a better city to live, work and play for the past 30 years," commented Halliwell. "We are committed to Edmonton, and we look forward to continue bringing great design to this great city for many years to come."
