Sports and Recreation Lead

Brian graduated with a Masters of Architecture in 1991 from the Technical University of Nova Scotia (Dalhousie University) and began his career working on Community Recreation projects. Over time, he was fortunate to join Joe Tkalcic in creating a practice – Architecture| Tkalcic Bengert (Arch|TB). Arch|TB specialized in Sports and Recreation projects under Brian’s leadership. Upon completing the Rogers Place Arena for the Edmonton Oilers, Arch|TB was acquired by Stantec, with the intent that Brian lead their employee complement of over 33,000 in the development of a Sports and Recreation department. Over the past three years, Brian was engaged in this role as Stantec’s Sports and Recreation Sector Leader, and he oversaw the entire Sports and Recreation portfolio for North America and Europe. During his tenure with Stantec, Brian significantly improved Stantec’s ranking in Sports and Recreation to the 9th best ranked Sports and Recreation Firms. While Brian is proud of this accomplishment, and was pleased to have the opportunity to undertake this task, a strong desire to get back to the smaller more service-oriented approach that he and Joe had developed as Arch|TB was ever present. Because of this drive, Joe and Brian have recently started up their new Firm: TBD Architecture + Urban Planning. The new Firm is Client-focused and delivers cost-effective solutions to Clients for a wide range of project typologies.
