Announcing the passing of Wayne Duncan

We are saddened by the passing of Wayne Duncan, former Principal at FBM.

Wayne graduated with a Bachelor of Environmental Design Studies and a Bachelor of Architecture from the former Nova Scotia Technical College (now Dalhousie University) in 1980. Wayne spent 39 years with FBM before his retirement in 2019.

Wayne was responsible for detailing FBM’s architectural designs and mentoring early-career architects and technical personnel on many complex, large-scale projects. FBM’s strong industry reputation for quality is due in part to Wayne’s assiduous attention to detail and dedication to the betterment of the built environment. His legacy lives on in the many projects he helped create including the Halifax Central Library, Queen’s Marque, the Mona Campbell Building at Dalhousie, the William D. Finn Centre for Forensic Medicine, Halifax Citadel High School, and the IWK Hospital.

His impact at FBM is felt by staff, including Principals Susan Fitzgerald and Craig Davidson, FBM President and former schoolmate, George Cotaras, and the many young professionals who have learned from Wayne’s affable and consistent managerial style.

A donation in Wayne’s honour has been made to the Canadian Cancer Society and the SPCA for his many four-legged companions.
