Architectural firm expands

A Red Deer architectural firm has expanded to Lloydminster.

A Red Deer architectural firm has expanded to Lloydminster.

Berry Architecture & Associates opened a branch office in the border city in early March. George Berry, who owns Berry Architecture with his business partner Suzanne Widdecke, said several of their staff members are currently working at the new office, but they expect to hire employees specifically for that location.

“Right now it looks like at least two, but things are growing.,” said Berry. “We look like we could be up to four or five people there within the next six months.

“I head up there every other week right now, and I’m actually looking to hire a full-time architect up there, as well as a couple of techs.”

He said the firm had been doing work in Lloydminster, which caught the eyes of prospective clients and resulted in more jobs.

“We’ve got five or six projects going there right now.”

The fact there were no architects based in Lloydminster made the market an attractive one to grow into, said Berry.

He didn’t discount the possibility of further expansion, noting that much of his firm’s business is outside Central Alberta.

“We seem to have developed a niche for working in some of the smaller communities.”

Berry Architecture will mark its 15th anniversary this summer.
