The firm was established in October of 1954 as E J McCudden Architect with the design of the Royal Museum of Natural History in Wascana Centre. Mr. Ross Goldie joined the firm in 1955 and the firm became McCudden and Goldie Architects. The firm was renamed McCudden Goldie and Morley Architectural Services Ltd when Mr. Bill Morley joined the firm in 1976. In 1996, with the retirement of Mr. Bill Morley, the firm was restructured and Pattison MGM Architectural Services Ltd. was established under the direction of Mr. Reid Pattison.
In 2013, Christopher Miles Kailing joined the firm. With the retirement and passing of Reid Pattison in the fall of 2015, Chris became the Principal Architect overseeing all projects. Under the direction of the four current partners, Mike Adams, Ward Peters, Donn Lay, and Christopher Kailing, the firm is continuing to provide "Responsible Architecture" to clients within the Province, following the legacy of all preceding partners.
In 2016 we launched the new brand of pmgm architecture ltd.

pmgm architecture ltd. balances progressive design with traditional values of quality, integrity, and performance to deliver responsible architecture that meets the needs and aspirations of clients while being responsive to the local context and environment
Environmental Stewardship is a professional imperative. Pattison MGM strives to design durable, high quality buildings that perform economically, socially, and environmentally. Through an integrative process we partner experience, knowledge and ingenuity. We recognize that to provide buildings that will serve the future, we must sometimes look to the past. That in this post-industrial age, we must study and reflect on the clever solutions of pre-industrial cultures. We look at technology as a tool that can assist with specific performance criteria, however, we recognize that it is not a panacea and should be utilized with careful consideration. With every project we ask ourselves how we can work with nature to maximize project performance.
Critical to the delivery of sustainable projects is client initiative. For each project we work with the client to identify sustainability goals and build their understanding of how those goals translate into Architecture. Our job as Architects is to identify the various project specific strategies that can reduce a project's environmental impact while increasing its long range value for the client.
Our firm is a member of the Canadian Green Building Council. Our staff includes one LEED Accredited Professionals and three LEED Green Associates. We are capable of delivering buildings that meet current certification requirements as outlined in LEED and Passive House. In the past we have delivered projects per the stringent requirements of CBIP.
