Meet our Jury
The 2020 Civic Design Awards Jury joins us from Vancouver, B.C.
As a President of the Architectural Institute of B.C., Danica elevated the institute and significantly contributed to the profession of architecture across the country and even around the world, as evidenced by the signing of the recent mutual recognition agreement with the European Union.
Outside of this very demanding leadership role, Danica is also a highly respected professional in her role as Director of Facilities Planning and Development for the City of Vancouver, where she has similarly gained considerable recognition for her work.
She lead the creation of the brand new Facilities Planning and Development division within the new Real Estate and Facilities Management department – a consolidated facilities planning and development group within the City of Vancouver. Danica provided vision and strategic leadership in managing, planning, and development of all city facilities (around 700 buildings and 12 million sf) by introducing new and innovative leading practice asset management approach based on the “service first” delivery model, where the assets management process is centered around service needs (recreation, housing, culture, social, fire, police, library, etc.) and not the assets themselves.
