Alton Tangedal Architect, Regina, SK, CA, Architectural Designer

Involved in over 30 projects each year. Most Projects were residential, commercial and industrial.
Overseen projects starting from schematic design, construction phase up to final stage with my team.
Ac complishments
• Weston’s Bakery redevelopment – in an existing 3 floor building due to NBC the fire rated walls between different occupancies presented challenges due to nature of each business. I came up with few solutions and the one chosen was to relocate the tenants to save costs and to be up to code.
• Markusson New Holland Dealership – Redevelopment of the building presented challenges when interacting with grandfathered areas. I came up with various solutions that involved keeping new structures independent from some existing interior walls, created a second access, reorganized the location of existing offices, and created the corridors for 2 floors with a very special ceiling shape to fit the existing interior heights. We have successfully increased the usable space and saved billable hours and client was satisfied and returned with a phase 2 of the project doubling the first phase scope of work.
