The Social Sciences and Mathematics Building exemplifies the University of Victoria's commitment to sustainability in our teaching, research, partnerships and campus operations."

"Merrick has been very good to work with in the actual construction of buildings, and our projects have come in within 1% to just under 5% of projected costs. This occurred in a time of significantly rising construction costs."

“Merrick Architecture has demonstrated upscale design sense with particular depth in ‘west-coast modern’ aesthetic. They provide us with clear, detailed working drawings which result in both quality and cost control. We have used a number of top architects in various markets across North America and Merrick Architecture is definitely one of our favourites.”

“We were very happy with the work MA did, from the original project, and then with each successive project. We have remained with MA throughout our facilities redevelopment, and through our second iteration of a new Master Plan. We have been very happy with their imaginative work, conceptual development, and vision. For someone sitting on the fence, I would say that they will find in MA a team that understands the human element in designing spaces for an institution or a business enterprise, and do an excellent job of marrying vision with the pragmatic needs of the architectural program. They are a pleasure to work with.”
Head of School, St. Michaels University School
“It has always been an absolute pleasure working with you and your firm, and most notably we always receive great value from your services as valued partners.”
General Manager, Parks, Recreation & Culture Services, City of Coquitlam
“Thanks to Merrick Architecture, the Transportation Management Centre meets all of our space and functional requirements while being bright, airy, and very aesthetically pleasing without being or looking expensive. The project came in slightly under budget and on time. The Merrick team presented a very respectful, solutions oriented, collaborative approach to working with the general contractor and the trades. In spite of the pressures, many lasting friendships were formed on the site. I strongly recommend that anyone with a challenging project schedule combined with a need for first class design and leadership consider letting Merrick Architecture show you what they can do.”
