Exciting new project in Edmonton...

DFS Inc. architecture & design, along with Saucier + Perrotte Architectes, have been selected to be part of the team assembled by the Marc Boutin Architectural Collaborative (MBAC) - Prime Consultant, for the historic (1930-1958) Rossdale Power Plant rehabilitation in Edmonton. Work has been underway since September and we are delighted to be a part of this amazing project.

This culturally significant location has a rich Indigenous history and was once the leading site of electrical production for the city. The River Crossing Business Plan, approved by City Council in September 2019, envisions a range of people-oriented (cultural, institutional, commercial, and entertainment) uses for this landmark site.

We are very pleased to announce that DFS Inc. has been awarded the mandate for several new developments at the Redpath Museum at McGill University.

Built in 1882 and located in the heart of the downtown McGill campus, it is one of the oldest museums in Canada and currently home to numerous artifacts including 3 mummies, thousands of fossils and several dinosaurs. Comprised of 2,734 m2 and spread over four levels with a Victorian teaching auditorium on the second floor and several research laboratories in the basement, this masonry and wood edifice is a distinctive expression of eclectic Victorian Classicism and an unusual example of the Greek Revival in North America.

We are exceptionally proud to be a part of the preservation and modernization of this cherished Montreal landmark.
