Bernd has been involved in the practice of architecture since the age of 16 when he began work as an office boy with the firm of Briggs Greenwell Architects of Prince George.

As a graduation thesis from the School of Architecture at UBC Bernd "redesigned" a, then new, major urban shopping centre in downtown Vancouver and received the Award of Merit from the Architectural Institute of BC. In the following five year period he worked with the high-profile Vancouver firm Perkins, McDonald, and Bellpratt, in the areas of RESORT / RECREATIONAL, institutional, commercial, and residential design. He became registered as an architect with the AIBC in 1981.

In 1983 Bernd and his family moved to Salmon Arm where he established the first architectural practice in the area. Since that time he has served a wide variety of clients and been responsible for many key projects both in Salmon Arm and other nearby communities. He has taught architectural design in Vancouver with the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada's syllabus program, at UBC as a graduation mentor, and interior design at Okanagan College.
