Initial Design

Good planning does not begin with an abstract and arbitrary scheme that it seeks to impose on a community; it begins with a knowledge of existing conditions and opportunities.
- Lewis Mumford

We believe that gathering all of the site information and determining constraints at the outset is a critical first step and crucial in the success of a project. Through ongoing collaboration, our team works closely with our clients to analyze all opportunities which then inform the initial design concepts. Moving through the design process, we develop floor plans and elevations with a focus on a renowned design process that merges innovative design with practical, client-focused solutions.

Detailed Design

Technical drawings and specifications are completed and coordinated with the consultant team. Prior to being issued to clients, construction documents are carefully reviewed through an internal quality control process. Building permits and drawings are then issued for construction.

Construction

This phase involves a continuous commitment to the project management, timelines, and follow through. Our team remains active throughout this entire phase with ongoing construction administration and field reviews to assist in ensuring that construction complies with the original intent of the design, errors are avoided on site, and projects are completed to highest quality design standards and building codes.

Project Completion and beyond

At Keystone Architecture, we believe in creating solutions-driven developments of lasting value. Seeing the culmination of our client’s projects through to completion is important to us. Witnessing those same projects standing strong many years later is a testament to who we are. Our greatest compliment is having clients return to us for future projects. View all projects

We are getting ready to bundle up again for the Coldest Night of the Year Walk on February 20th! @cnoyorg 

This year is a little different than we have done in the past as we are organizing our own micro walk individually, but the goal is the same: walking to support and serve individuals and families experiencing homelessness. 

This year our Abbotsford team is walking for the Mission Youth House (MY House) and our Calgary team is walking for the HomeSpace Society!
Please note that Keystone’s Abbotsford office will be closed on Wednesday, Jan. 27th due to a BC Hydro planned power outage. Our main phone lines will be down, however, many of our staff will be working remotely and available by email or mobile. Thank you for your patience.

Today’s staff highlight is Tyler Tsang!

Tyler joined the Keystone team at the newly opened Calgary office in 2020 and brings over 14 years’ experience in the Architectural industry. His vast experience involves a variety of project typologies including commercial/ retail buildings, community support developments, residential developments and
industrial buildings. Tyler provides strong leadership to his projects, along with his clear communication skills and organizational abilities, to ensure client satisfaction while assisting the team to facilitate goals and timelines. Tyler’s ability to respond with creative and technically sound solutions along with his understanding of building systems make him a valuable asset to the Keystone team. He is currently enrolled in the RAIC Syllabus program and is a LEED® Green Associate.

A fun fact about Tyler is he once taught English in Japan to students aged 3 to 82! Consequently he hasn’t sang karaoke, eaten ramen every day or dressed up as Santa since.
Please note our offices will be closed tomorrow in honour of Remembrance Day
Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving weekend!
This weeks staff highlight is Hailey Beliveau!

Hailey joined the Keystone team in 2014 as a Technologist and she graduated with a Diploma in Architectural and Engineering Technology in 2011 from Thompson Rivers University. Her experience has included Building Information Modeling on a large scale infrastructure project, along with working on a variety of development types including commercial, institutional, health care facilities and residential developments. She thrives on working within a team environment to meet deadlines and objectives and is eager to utilize new technologies and design to advance project development. Hailey's skills and strong work ethic are highly valued by the Keystone team.

Hailey is also a former auto-cross racer and spent her summers at professional go-kart tracks and assisting with various tasks with the racing association/club. Also the late, great Montreal Canadien, Jean Beliveau, is her second cousin!
We are excited to be working together with the Kelson Group on their landmark new development – City Gardens in Downtown Kamloops! City Gardens is a multi-building residential development that will contain more than 400 living units and is located within an urban park-like greenspace designed as a biophilic response to the client’s vision to create a meaningful connection to nature. This new development will provide the residents of Downtown Kamloops with a vibrant opportunity to live, work and play within the community that they call home.
