Name of creator
Richard C. (Dick) Mann attended the University of British Columbia, graduating in 1957. He joined the Vancouver firm of Thompson, Berwick, Pratt & Partners the same year as a draughtsman. In 1966, Mann was put in charge of the Urban Planning division, a post he held until he left the firm in 1985. Mann was involved with various projects including the Kelowna waterfront development, and planning for urban development and industrial building projects. Mann was also active on the Vancouver Board of Trade as Chair, and as a member of the Civic Affairs Committee, and the Environmental Task Force.
When Mann left TBP in 1985, he founded his own firm of abitat consultants. The company was involved in economic and environmental consulting for building projects, and the design and building of private and public spaces.
