Gavin joined Montgomery Sisam in 2012 with extensive experience in architectural research, design development and construction document related tasks for healthcare projects at various scales and across a number of delivery methods.

Prior to joining our team, Gavin played an integral role in the design and execution of Humber River Regional Hospital, Markham Stouffville Hospital, as well as the Abilities Centre in Whitby, honing his skills crafting healthy engaging spaces to suit a variety of needs, including acute care, children’s treatment and mental health.

Gavin has since assumed the role of Project Manager on a number of complex P3 Planning Design and Compliance projects, including the Ron Joyce Children’s Health Centre, the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health Phase 1C and the George Street Revitalization project. With critical insight into the effective application of best practice and LEAN planning principles, he is highly proficient in coordinating consultant material and writing Project Specific Output Specifications. Gavin’s strong communication and facilitation skills are an asset to all his projects.  He has a reputation for employing innovative strategies to build consensus amongst complex stakeholder and user groups. 

As an expert in sustainable and energy efficient design, Gavin speaks frequently on his work developing holistic, whole building and planning solutions. His research considers the long-term operational savings gained from leveraging sustainable design strategies as part of a forward-thinking approach to evidence-based clinical practice. As evidenced in his work with the Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness and the West Don Lands 2015 Toronto Pan/Parapan American Games Athletes’ Village, he is committed to ensuring clients’ sustainability goals are met.
