Elaine received her Bachelor of Architecture degree from Carleton University in 1992 and has been with Chmiel Architects since inception in 1996.
Her experience includes new commercial construction, building modernization, interior design, and residential construction. She has a strong understanding of green building design and has managed both LEED-NC and LEED-CI projects.
Her comprehensive approach to architecture allows her to visualize and develop projects on a holistic basis, as she is keenly aware that interior fit-up requirements often influence the base building infrastructure, and vice versa. Elaine is a strong advocate of collaborative processes and effective communication, which she feels facilitates successful project delivery for the entire project team. She approaches design in a strategic manner, developing meaningful solutions that make sense for each client’s specific requirements.
