From a few committed firms we grew

In 2009, twelve leading Alberta architectural firms came together to discuss establishing an organization to build a positive business environment for their profession. As a result, the Consulting Architects of Alberta was founded to represent, advocate for, and support practicing architects in the province. It serves as the industry voice for architects and promotes the value-added work delivered by consulting architects. 


The association works to provide leadership and support to architectural firms in Alberta, promote the role of Alberta architects and spark industry dialogue on key business issues. It supports the collective interests of architects and offers a vital link between architects and clients. The association provides an environment where members can more easily collaborate, exchange ideas, and better serve client and community needs. CAA welcomes all Alberta architects to join in the collaboration and exchange of ideas.  Working together, Alberta architects can continue to advocate for changes to further serve clients and communities.  Click here for more information about becoming a member.

 

Registered under the Alberta Societies Act, the Consulting Architects of Alberta has grown from a few devoted charter members adding firms over its eight years. They range from sole practitioners to large practices—each serving their communities in many different and beneficial ways.
