FBM's Architecture and Planning Studios get support from new hires

Suet Ying (Julie) Leung and Brianna Maxwell are FBM’s two newest recruits in a year of unlikely hiring. The intern architect and junior planner started this fall on the heels of several new hires. They round out the Architecture and Planning Studios, bringing the total number of full-time staff to 46, up from 31 in late 2019.

The expansion comes as a result of FBM’s growing projects and trajectory of the commercial, residential, and mixed-use developments in the Maritimes.

“We’ve been fortunate to remain busy throughout the pandemic,” says Craig Davidson, FBM Finance Principal. “Moreover, the development landscape in Nova Scotia shows no signs of slowing. Our talent pool now reflects that demand with a holistic, people driven, approach to design and planning.”

Julie, a graduate of the Dalhousie School of Architecture, is working with FBM’s healthcare team, supporting EllisDon Healthcare Infrastructure on the design of the province’s new P3 Bayers Lake Community Outpatient Centre. Brianna joins Kieron Hunt and David Paterson to develop main street visioning towards reinvigorating Nova Scotia's rural communities.
