Silver Sage Elders Lodge

Construction is now complete for the Silver Sage Elders Lodge in Regina, Saskatchewan.

This $6.5 million project was initiated using an integrated approach to design that engaged the Elders of the community in consultation for their needs and lifestyle analysis.  The requirements were integrated into a unique design solution to respect cultural attributes as well as personal needs.

Dragana is a graduate from Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario.

Danielle and Dragana worked extensively to complete this achievement over the past three years, immersing themselves in the procedures and requirements of professional practice while preparing for the strenuous examinations.

Our Approach

Our philosophy focuses on design excellence, achieving clear solutions by breaking the problems down into manageable components and providing the highest level of client service and project delivery.
Our staff includes registered architects, architectural building technologists, design associates and administration managers who combine their talents to provide exceptional solutions and service for every project.
We value the relationships we've built with clients and engineering firms, holding their participation in project procurement and delivery in high regard.

A Lean Approach
Implementation of LEAN attributes form the cornerstone of our design analysis.  The LEAN methodology is an excellent process through which the client's needs and desires can be ascertained along with the foundations for the design.

The consulting team is ultimately responsible to engage with the client and produce the design solution.  The collaborative effort is drawn through the lean process to provide the necessary information for use in generating the design solution.

Market Based Management Style
Kreate supports a market-based management approach to the overall organization of the firm.  The approach focuses on staff member contributions to the growth and success of all facets within the organization

Green / Environmental Initiative
We believe that it is possible to provide affordable, high-performance solutions that encourages local engagement and enhances the quality of the surrounding area. Responsible, sustainable design choices are fundamental to our design practice and present a core component of all decision making processes.

As members of the Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC), and with LEED certification, we continually research projects and products, the methods of construction and use, and design strategies to maximize positive impacts to our environment and achieve a sensitive balance with our surroundings.

We strive to implement sustainable practices in a rational fashion to maximize performance returns. Such practices include selecting materials with recycled content, considering long-term construction waste management by choosing post-use recyclable materials, and optimizing sun exposure and day-lighting opportunities to reduce energy consumption and enhance finished environments.

Corporate Ideology
We believe that the professional education continues throughout one's career.

Our staff have a commitment towards sharing knowledge and information gained at each seminar.  Through the application of in-house "lunch-and-learns", we conduct seminars on the latest information, materials and techniques related to design and construction.

We participate with Construction Associations across Canada in development and implementation of Interpreting Construction Documents.  This intensive course is geared towards education of trades, site personnel and project managers related to the document production practices and purpose.

Our staff are constantly engaged in continuing education as well as teaching and professional development through seminars.  Training, travel and sharing of experiences between the staff members all contribute to the skills and knowledge base of our firm.

We firmly believe that in order for a building to be sustainable, it must be loved; it must touch the soul. People—not just the current owners, but future generations—must find enough value in a building to continue to occupy and maintain it. Some of this is aesthetic, some performance, and some economics. The Roman architect Vitruvius told us that buildings must have "Firmness, Commodity and Delight". True today more than ever.David Arkin
