Bernd Hermanski Architect Inc. has been in business in Salmon Arm since 1983, and is the leading architectural consulting firm in the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District. Our office is located in downtown Salmon Arm and is able to provide responsive, streamlined, and competitive services. We have worked extensively with all the municipal and regional jurisdictions, and are very familiar with the personnel and processes involved. We also have developed strong relationships with numerous other consultant offices, including those offering structural, mechanical, electrical, civil, and geotechnical engineering, as well as landscape design. Knowledge of the local construction industry allows us to fully understand all that is involved in developing a building project in this region.

We have earned a strong reputation as a firm proficient at offering the full range of traditional design services (schematic design, construction document preparation, contract tendering, and field review). This includes the analysis and preparation involved in Re-Zoning, Development Permit, and Building Permit applications. Beyond the basic scope of services, we are also able to offer services in urban and neighbourhood design and feasibility studies, and are capable of providing 3-D project representations, in either physical model or digital computer model form.

Our staff of architects and building technicians (including a LEEDTM AP) has experience in a wide range of building types, including commercial, institutional, recreational, industrial, and residential projects. We are equipped to work on projects of varying sizes, from single-family homes to large-scale commercial or institutional buildings.

We pride ourselves on producing projects that achieve maximum design quality for realistic budgets and construction schedules. Over the past 28 years our office has designed over 300 projects, almost all of which have been built. Some of these are listed in the 'Projects' section of this website.
