 “RJC Engineers and Stantec are honoured to receive this award, recognizing the accomplishments of the entire team in delivering this cultural icon for Canada. We greatly enjoyed working with the National Music Centre – their passion for this facility is infectious and the perseverance of their vision was a true gift to the entire project team,” said Simon Brown, Principal at RJC Engineers.

The creativity, technical excellence and collaboration between RJC Engineers and Stantec helped bring Studio Bell to life. This 12 time award-winning project is an iconic piece of architecture to celebrate and support Canadian music- a museum, performance hall, interactive music education centre, recording studio and broadcast centre are all a part of this unique, unconventional and stunning design.
