PSAC Office Building

DESCRIPTION: The award-winning, twelve-storey office building, located in the heart of downtown Ottawa was commissioned by the Public Service Alliance of Canada to house its main conference centre & national offices.



I think the trend of architectural expression is to design and build according to the personality of the client… An example of this can be found in Ottawa in the new Headquarters for the Public Service Alliance of Canada. The appearance of the building reflects the growth and forward movement of PSAC.
