Brent Welty

Architect AIBC, AAA, MRAIC
Associate Principal, Operations Director, Calgary

When his third-grade teacher asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, Brent already knew he wanted to be an architect. With a background that grew to include computer science, industrial design, and cognitive psychology, Brent discovered that being an architect can encompass many more facets than he realized.

Early in his career, Brent was exposed to the ground-breaking green design projects of our Vancouver studio, inspiring him to approach his work with a focus on sustainability and energy conservation. Embodying that same drive to create responsible, forward-looking solutions, Brent draws from his cross-disciplinary background to integrate new technologies in design, fabrication, and construction to solve contemporary challenges.

Carrying forward the legacy that inspired his own career, Brent promotes a culture of innovation with his leadership in the Calgary studio.

Lonsdale Square Development
The 5-storey office/retail building is the first phase of mixed-use development oriented around a new city park.
"Our goal is to not only meet, but exceed our client's expectations by creating unique solutions to solve contemporary challenges."
Calgary Public Building
Restoration of this important historic landmark in downtown Calgary significantly improved indoor air quality and comfort while reducing operational energy consumption by 30% or more.
"I believe it is important to help staff reach their goals and support their commitment to design excellence."
Brent volunteered for Habitat for Humanity in 2014, constructing a residence in Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras.
