Nearly one year after the RMA+SH architects’ merger, the studio located at 441 MacLaren Street transitioned to 216 Pretoria Street, uniting the team in a dynamic single studio environment, fostering a vibrant team culture.

Following the move, we celebrated our one-year milestone with an inspiring two-day retreat held on November 2-3, 2023, at Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello. Led by Maureen Cunningham from Up Until Now Inc., every team member had the opportunity to engage in this transformative team building experience. The retreat provided a platform for us to connect, align on our collective vision, goals, values, and technological direction. It was instrumental in shaping our new core values: caring, curiosity, creativity, and collaboration.

We have since engaged with Basima Roshan with Acta Strategy, who's been instrumental in guiding us through a collaborative journey. Basima facilitated discussions with our partners to map out roles, responsibilities, and competencies for each team member, ensuring clarity and alignment. She also steered the process to establish career pathways for every role within the firm, complete with necessary training. In addition, we recently formed committees aimed at enhancing collaboration, driving excellence, and cultivating a positive workplace culture.

Stay tuned as we continue to evolve, restructure, and grow!
