RATIO wrote this on Mar 29, 2016

New spending on infrastructure in British Columbia recently announced by The Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities will mean $73.3 million in funding from the federal Gas Tax Fund for 57 capital and capacity building projects in communities around the province.  The  approved capital projects will support the construction of a range of community infrastructure projects in 27 communities. The projects relate to drinking water (8), wastewater (4), recreational and cultural infrastructure (6), local roads and bridges (4), solid waste management (2), community energy systems (2) and a regional airport improvement project.

This is good news: the importance of infrastructure is obvious, as it is indispensable, supporting and enhancing our quality of life.

Infrastructure design is a focus of our firm.  Our architectural solution for an infrastructure design challenge is not just practical but with respect for settings, community and economics.  Function and design; rigorous creativity and a progressive approach are the hallmarks of our process.

RATIO’s experience with successful hard infrastructure projects spans decades. Some of our country’s most important public institutions and infrastructure have been designed by RATIO. You’ll find infrastructure projects designed by RATIO in communities around the province, commissioned by all levels of government.


Here is a sampling  of RATIO’s  infrastructure design work:
