FBM Wins Lifetime Achievement Award

For the second year in a row FBM took home one of the Mayor's Prizes in Architecture - this time the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award.

The event, hosted by Mayor Mike Savage and the Nova Scotia Association of Architects (NSAA), was held on Monday, November 19th at the Lord Nelson Hotel.

President of the NSAA, Spyro Trifos, presented the team at FBM with the Award, and spoke of the legacy the Firm has established over the last 101 years in the city of Halifax - in particular, its work on the Central Library.

Trifos referenced one of the selection committee member's comments about this specific Project during his presentation remarks, "perhaps FBM's most significant contribution, although hard to quantify, and possibly even unintentional, may be the ripple effect from the public outreach with the Library. If it has changed developers’ point of view then that is a big win. However, all the public consultation in the world can still result in a terrible building. It speaks to FBM’s skill that this one turned into a pearl.”

We are honoured to have had the work over the last century recognized, and grateful to have been awarded this prestigious prize.
