Shannon joined Montgomery Sisam in 2011 following an internship at an internationally acclaimed office in Austria and was appointed to Principal in 2021.
In her time with the firm, Shannon has gained experience in all phases of project delivery, working largely in the education sector. She has contributed her strong design sensibility and extensive technical knowledge to both the new Alvin Curling Public School and the Greenwood College School Expansion.
Shannon’s design skills and managerial acumen have since been an asset to large institutional projects like the Myhal Centre for Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship. This exceptionally complex building located on a constrained urban site balances a disciplined aesthetic rigor with trailblazing academic and applied research programs. With advanced skills in Revit and Adobe Creative Suite, Shannon’s involvement began in the early stages of design and approvals processes and has continued through technical detailing, fabrication, installation and contract administration. Her attention to detail and administrative aptitude have ensured the client’s needs are carefully addressed and that the project is executed as designed.
Shannon’s work in large urban settings is complemented by a personal interest in the roles of memory and cultural sensitivity in designing for rural contexts. She believes understanding and responding to clients needs within a historical and culturally specific framework is integral to creating thoughtful, lasting design.
