Nicolas Ranger joined the firm in 2001 after having founded a design firm in Québec City in 1996 and having worked in Montréal on commercial projects. He has been a Main Partner since 2011 and has been a designer and project manager for the firm in the fields of transportation, culture, healthcare and education.
He demonstrates his dedication toward creating sustainable, high-quality architecture, built within the established deadlines and budgets. Sensitive to dialogue and the openness of large multidisciplinary teams, Nicolas Ranger’s contribution is particularly relevant for programs with high technical content, carried out within buildings kept in operation during the construction period. These qualities and capacities are applied in the role of project director that he has held with Aéroports de Montréal since 2015.
Nicolas has also developed expertise in the realization of innovative institutional projects, mainly in the field of culture when carrying out various projects for competitions. The Raymond-Lévesque Library in Longueuil, where he was responsible for execution, cost control and scheduling, was rewarded with 20 national and international awards, including the prestigious Governor General’s Medal for Architecture in 2014, Canada's highest architectural award. He subsequently worked on the construction of the Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion for Peace, a 4,000 m² extension at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and the Gilles Vigneault Theater, recipients of the Canadian Architect Magazine 2013 and 2014. He is also project manager for the metamorphosis of the Montréal Insectarium.
He is interested in integrating new design technologies, mainly through the BIM process and Revit software, overseeing the structured implementation within the firm. He is also responsible for the ISO 9001: 2008 accreditation, for the application of the firm's high quality standards to all its projects.
