The completion of the north campus drive entrance sign at the University of Regina marks the second phase of the U of R monument signage project. Together with the south Gateway project completed in 2014, the signage enhances the University’s brand and visual identity, and provides easy identification for passing pedestrians and vehicles.
P3A not only acknowledges our employees for their hard work at the office, but for their good deeds outside of the office that positively impact the lives of others.
For the third time since 2011, Katrina Nagle, Architectural Technologist at P3A, cut 8 inches off her hair to support women who have lost their hair to cancer. Procter & Gamble Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society, launched the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign in 2007. Since then, over 70,000 ponytails have been donated and made into real-hair wigs to help women living with cancer regain their confidence – at no cost to the Society or to the women receiving the wigs. Thank you Katrina!
P3A is pleased to announce that SPRA (Strategic Prairie Region Alliance), a joint venture of aodbt (Saskatoon), ONPA (Edmonton), and P3A (Regina), has been awarded the contract to provide LEAN 3-P, Prime Consulting, and Architecture services to the Mamawetan Churchill River Health Region for the design of a 70 bed long term care facility.
P3A assisted the Region in the preparation of a business case, and SPRA served as Prime Consultants for the delivery of a needs assessment and functional program provided by an exception group of sub-consultants. We look forward to this milestone project for the Region and the opportunity to create a unique facility that reflects the needs of northern residents and their families.

P3A is pleased to announce that Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) has awarded P3A the Alvin Hamilton Building re-stack project.
Situated in the heart of downtown Regina, the Alvin Hamilton Building is a retrofit of a previous shopping centre. The retrofit was designed by P3A and the building was completed in 2006. P3A designed the building to achieve a LEED Silver rating by incorporating many innovative features and practices.
Currently, the building requires a restack and re-planning to make more efficient use of space and to integrate several government departments currently located off-site.
P3A looks forward to the project and to once again working with PSPC.
P3A is pleased to welcome Kate Jackson. Kate previously worked with P3A as a Design Intern. Kate has a Bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Manitoba. She has spent the past two years completing her Masters of Architecture at the University of Waterloo. In December, her thesis was accepted with commendation. Welcome back to the team!
P3A helped the Regina Humane Society (RHS) celebrate National Cupcake Day™ by inviting staff and clients to participate in raising money for animals in need. National Cupcake Day™ is a coordinated Canadian event to support local shelters, SPCAs, and Humane Societies. In 2015, animal lovers across Canada raised over $550,000 in support of their favourite societies.
As a member of the RHS’s board of directors, P3A’s James Youck encouraged staff to get involved. As a result, over 300 cupcakes were baked by P3A employees which were handed out to coworkers and clients in exchange for a donation to the RHS. Special thanks to our clients and consultants who purchased most of the cupcakes, helping us raise $771 for the RHS!
