Number TEN was humbled to accept a Prairie Design Award of Merit for Manitou a bi Bii daziigae on Monday evening.
From the jury: This building ensemble is conceived as an inclusive learning and research hub for emerging IT industries in consultation with the RRC community, industry leaders, and Indigenous stakeholders. Its ambitious design embraces the principles of community connectivity, inclusion, and collaboration through the adaptive re use of a 20,000-square-foot heritage building, an 80,000-square-foot addition, a skywalk and a student plaza. This project incorporates leading sustainable technologies and energy performance targets, including: a continuous photovoltaic panel skin exterior; an expansive skylight that channels daylight through a five-storey atrium to its interior spaces; and a ‘live’ operational performance data feed to its users. This project also incorporates Indigenous art and symbolism; the mural on the soffit area of the projecting cornice, while counter-intuitive, is a welcoming gesture to those who enter this facility.
To create welcoming, inclusive, collaborative spaces embedded in our places and communities is a privilege. To be recognized for this work is an honour.
Designed in joint venture with Diamond Schmitt

We are proud to announce that Number TEN Associate Leslie Myers has been named Outstanding Woman in Construction of the Year by the Vancouver Island Construction Association.
This award recognizes a woman who has significantly and positively impacted the construction industry on Vancouver Island.
Leslie’s commitment to integrity, honesty, and quality are apparent in all that she does. She is a dedicated volunteer, mentor and leader always willing to share her time and expertise.
“She truly believes and shares that if anyone comes to work with a keen attitude to learn and demonstrates quality and integrity in the work they do, that they can be successful in the industry. Leslie knows that there isn’t anything that women can’t do and she demonstrates this belief daily,” says Colleen McConnell from the Construction Foundation of BC.
Leslie was nominated by Number TEN partner Barry Cosgrave. Ten years ago, Leslie joined Number TEN as junior designer. Since then, she has become both the leader of our Interior Design Studio, and an associate. Barry says, “She is tireless in her pursuit of knowledge and improving her professional skills, volunteering for industry committees and mentorship for Interior Design students. Her work ethic and people skills have allowed her to connect to people she works with both in the office and in particular clients, end users, contractors, subtrades and other professionals.”
We are lucky to have her strength, vision and entrepreneurial spirit on our team, and in the construction industry. Congratulations Leslie!

Introduction to Interior Design
Interior Designers design the inside of buildings that we use every day such as schools, homes, hospitals, and offices. They plan out every space by drawing floorplans, choosing materials, selecting paint colours, lighting, and furniture. Interior Designers create spaces that are safe, functional, and beautiful.
