Passa Associates has prodigious experience in a wide range of building design including institutional, multi-family residential, commercial and industrial projects. The principal and employees have compiled a collection of successful work both nationally in various parts of Canada, as well as internationally in the United States, Australia and New Zealand. The firm is dedicated to the formulation of sensitive and imaginative building. It strives for architectural excellence in the exploration of ideas and functional requirements within the economic and environmental responsibilities that are demanded of all projects. Designs emphasize continual research and endeavour to analyze accepted norms in order to produce solutions that can improve established concepts. Building design decisions involve the consideration of multiple performance considerations, such as comfort, economics, code compliance, energy requirements and environmental impact, as well as aesthetics. Building design can be seen as the process of generating ideas that involve specific strategies and technologies within the specific design context. The thriving progression of a community is dependent upon achieving a balance between practical requirements and the artifice of the built form in order to propel cultural expression to an enduring future.
