“We are excited to have BKDI as the primary consultants for this project in Didsbury. They are a well recognized firm with expertise and experience in developing seniors housing and care centres,” says Greer Black, President and CEO, Bethany Care Society. “Bethany went through an exhaustive selection process and we are looking forward to working with this architectural firm.”
“Now in our 33rd year, BKDI Architects has completed a multitude of projects in Calgary, throughout Alberta and across Canada. We are fortunate to have worked on a number of long term care and supportive living centres for current and longstanding clients and we look forward, with enthusiasm, to working with the Bethany Care Society on their exciting new Supportive Living Project in Didsbury,” says Ross Roy, Director, BKDI Architects.
