W. Kirk Banadyga, B. Arch, PP/FRAIC, Hon. FAIA, SAA
Provincial Architect, Government of Saskatchewan
Kirk Banadyga is a registered architect, having practiced in private and corporate sector, as business owner and partner, in Saskatchewan, for over 40 years before joining the Province of Saskatchewan as Provincial Architect. The decades have provided Kirk with the opportunity to consult in a broad range of consulting projects over a large variety of building types using a wide range of project delivery methodologies. The Saskatchewan market place has been a unique environment and incubator to develop a broad-based architectural business experience.
This diverse experience has also included serving the profession in multiple capacities; provincially, nationally, and internationally. This opportunity to serve the profession has ranged from various committee and elected board memberships that further led to serve provincially as President of the Saskatchewan Association of Architects and nationally as President of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada.
Banadyga has always had a keen interest in the technology of the day and an advocate of it’s business applications within the practise of architecture. This passion has, over the years earned him a reputation as an architectural “geek”, a badge he wears with honour.
During this time in the private sector Banadyga has been an early adopter of technology including BIM, web based project information management, asset management systems and mobile technology. He is currently promoting and leveraging this experience within government to promote the implementation of BIM and related technology to make the “best value” proposition to the construction sector and to the Province.
