Strengthen Kasian's Capabilities to Serve Clients throughout B.C.,
across Canada and Internationally
VANCOUVER, Oct. 31, 2012 /CNW/ - Kasian Architecture Interior Design and
Planning Ltd (Kasian), one of Canada's largest global architecture,
interior design and planning firms, has entered into an agreement to
merge the New Westminster based practice of CJP Architects Limited
(CJP) into its existing operations.
Founded in 1954, CJP Architects' nearly 60 years of experience has
provided some of the most recognizable and well received academic and
healthcare facilities in western Canada. These include Douglas
College's New Westminster and David Lam Campuses, the Performing Arts
Expansion at York House School, the Northern Rockies Regional
Recreation Centre, as well as the B.C. Children's Clinical Support
Building and Chilliwack Hospital Addition.
CJP has amassed extensive experience in both new designs and renovations
for a broad spectrum of Western Canadian projects. CJP owner Brian
Hulme will become a Principal with Kasian and support its business
development activities across various markets, with a particular focus
in Academic and Healthcare sectors. In addition, CJP's staff of
architects and technologists will transfer to Kasian's office located
in Vancouver at the foot of Stanley Park. This merger is the second for
Kasian in as many months.
Kasian and CJP share a common approach to clients and employees. "Both
our practices are built upon serving the needs of clients and staff,
and reflect a deep commitment to managing both with respect and
transparency" commented Brian Hulme of CJP. "In joining forces with
Kasian, I am confident that the strong relationships we've been able to
create with employees and clients alike will only be strengthened"
concluded Mr. Hulme.
"We are very excited to welcome CJP into Kasian. Their incredibly strong
portfolio, particularly in educational facilities, will be an excellent
addition and further enhance our capabilities in the Institutional
market sector" observed Don Kasian, President of Kasian. "With the
addition of CJP personnel, we will be able to expedite some recently
won projects, as well as be better positioned to pursue new projects
and continue our enviable track record of growth in British Columbia"
