P3A is proud to announce that Alice Davidson, Interior Designer, has obtained her Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification™ Professional designation. As the Rick Hansen Foundation explains, “Canadians struggle every day to access spaces because of physical barriers to accessibility – including people with temporary or permanent disabilities, our aging population, and parents with strollers….the Rick Hansen Foundation identified the need for a consistent, professionally administered rating system to address the currently fragmented landscape of building codes and standards. Launched in British Columbia in 2017, this rating system evaluates the accessibility of commercial, retail, multi-unit residential, and public buildings.”

The new Moose Jaw Joint Use School broke ground in May. The school will serve the Holy Trinity Catholic School Division and the Prairie South School Division in southwest Moose Jaw. This project is led by SPRA (Strategic Prairie Regional Alliance) - P3A’s Joint Venture with aodbt architecture + interior design.
Aimed for completion in 2025, the facility will accommodate over 900 students and provide childcare spaces to the community. The design draws inspiration from prairie grasses against a blue sky. The innovative design solution will result in more shared space than is typical in joint-use schools and speaks to the willingness of the school divisions to collaborate.
P3A had a great time at the Igloo Competition at Victoria Park as part of the 2023 Frost Festival. The team worked hard to bring our northern lights inspired design to life! A week ahead, team members filled dozens of balloons with water and food colouring, then set them outside to freeze. Once the balloons were removed, we had an assortment of colours to build with. P3A’s igloo won the People’s Choice Award. Back row: Jennifer, Kolby, Ashley, Landon, Neda, Vanessa; Front row: Meghan, Erik (Meghan’s son) and Angela.
