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.
