Allan Avis Architects of Goderich celebrating 25 years in business


In early July, Allan Avis Architects Inc., of Goderich, Ontario, will be celebrating their twenty-fifth year in business. A quarter of a century marked by dedication and passion for building history and design with many interesting stories along the way.

Allan Avis explains, “I started my own firm with 1 employee, growing to a consistent staff of 8, in less than 10 years. Most of our staff have been with the firm for more than 15 years.”

During the growth of the firm, “it has been my wife of 36 years, Anne Haley, my best friend, supporter and soul-mate who has helped build the firm; without her, none of this would have been possible,” says Avis.
