CAREER SUMMARY
Passa Associates has prodigious experience in a wide range of building design including institutional, educational, commercial, recreational, residential and industrial projects. The firm began the Green Movement of energy efficient sustainable design in Canada South, building some of the most energy efficient developments in the country since 2002. The principal and employees have compiled a collection of successful work in various regions of Canada and the United States, Australia and New Zealand. Passa Architects, a member of the Canada Green Building Council, also has Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professionals (LEED AP) on staff to evolve sustainable design solutions for LEED certification.

The firm is dedicated to the formulation of sensitive and imaginative building. It strives for architectural excellence in the exploration of ideas within the economic and environmental responsibilities that are demanded of all projects. Building designs involve the multiple performance considerations of comfort, economics, energy, environmental impact, and aesthetics. It is the process of generating ideas that involve specific strategies and technologies within a specific context. The thriving progression of our communities is dependent upon balancing practical requirements and the artifice of the built form in order to propel cultural expression to an enduring sustainable future. Our global natural abundance can then be preserved and enjoyed within our living buildings.
