History

Architectural firm founded in Calgary, Alberta in July 1955 by Albert Dale. In 1974 the firm of A. Dale & Associates merged with that of Chandler/Kennedy Architects and became known as the DCK Partnership. In the year of the merger with A. Dale & Associates, the new firm opened a second office in Edmonton. Three years later, Alberta Dale retired and the firm changed its name to the Chandler/Kennedy Architectural Group in order to emphasize the team nature of contemporary practice. In 1978, the partnership expanded still further by opening an office in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, and an agency in Vancouver, BC. An increasing number of commissions abroad necessitated the creation of a subsidiary, the Chandler/Kennedy Architectural Group - International, and two further offices were opened: London, England, and Dubai, UAE. From the beginning, the firm has extended its activities beyond individual building projects to include various planning studies for small towns, colleges, commercial and office complexes as well as major developments of high and low density land uses.
