Pamela values building inclusive environments for all, and to her that means having the right team and using creativity to design welcoming, fiscally responsible, and environmentally sustainable designs. A proponent of the lean process, Pamela is committed to creating more value for her clients using environmentally responsible and effective resources. She’s working towards less waste in the project delivery process.
With over 25 years of experience, Pamela has led large integrated teams to deliver complex projects—like the design-build pursuit submission for the Whistle Bend Continuing Care Facility in Whitehorse. Always considering the residents’ perspective, Pamela doesn’t see ageing-related projects as clinical environments but as a resident-centered communities. And they should always feel that way.
Pamela is also leading “Dementia Friendly Communities,” a Stantec Greenlight Innovation Research Grant project. The goal is to share our research report and best practice strategies to enable owners and designers to become leaders and educators in dementia-inclusive design. Ultimately, this will enable the design of seniors living facilities that improve the quality of life for people living with dementia. We can demonstrate a better way; bring joy, empathy, diversity, activity, nature, community, and safety to our current and future senior lives. She is active in the community as an online consumer panel member for the Arthritis Society Canada.
