During his thirty years with the firm, Georges has helped bring some of the country’s most iconic buildings back to life. His design approach is based on a detailed understanding of the historic evolution of a site and applies the most advanced architectural conservation practices. Regularly called upon to develop cost-effective intervention strategies for the rehabilitation of historic buildings, Georges has built a diverse portfolio, including commercial complexes, hotels, schools, libraries, high-rise residential, civic, and parliamentary buildings. In the context of numerous award-winning projects, Georges has demonstrated the viability of the values-based approach underlying the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada. Three of his flagship projects illustrate this approach to planning: the West Block House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Calgary City Hall, and the conservation plan for the Royal Victoria Hospital site in Montreal.
