Martin Sparrow /
Martin is a Director of Arney Fender Katsalidis in the Toronto studio, and he has over 30 years' experience negotiating complex design and municipal issues for a broad range of clients. He also has a wealth of experience, and a particular interest in sustainable design in the commercial and institutional sectors.
He works collaboratively with stakeholder groups, and has a proven track record of successfully guiding large-scale projects to completion. The longstanding client relationships he has developed over his career, are a testament to his service-orientated approach. Martin’s portfolio focuses on sustainable design in the commercial sector and includes the first LEED® CS Gold Certified project in Canada, Calgary’s Bankers Court office tower. In addition to being a registered Architect and LEED® Accredited Professional, Martin also holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration.
Prior to joining Arney Fender Katsalidis, Martin was a Principal with Canadian architecture practice Dialog Inc. for almost 20 years, as Principal-in-Charge of several large mixed-use developments including Brookfield Place, a 2.8 million sqft project in downtown Calgary, and the James Michael Flaherty Building (90 Elgin Street) in Ottawa, a LEED® Gold Certified, P3 project for Public Works and Government Services Canada.
Martin also spent nearly a decade on the senior management team of one of Canada’s major corporations, therefore he has a keen 'outside-in' perspective of the key drivers for major commercial projects.
