WINNIPEG, MANITOBA–(August 10, 2016) – Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP (TDS Law) is excited to announce that it has retained local architectural firm, Number TEN Architectural Group and Toronto-based design firm, figure3 to design its new state-of-the-art law office on the top three floors of the new True North Square Tower 1 in downtown Winnipeg’s S.H.E.D. (Sports, Hospitality and Entertainment District).

Keith LaBossiere, incoming Managing Partner and True North Square Project Leader at TDS Law says that, “When we decided to be a founding partner of True North Square we envisioned our new space to be unlike any other law firm that has been seen before. The retainer of Number TEN and figure3 is the next step in seeing that vision come alive.” He adds, “In making the strategic decision to be a founding partner and anchor tenant, we knew it would be in the best interests of our firm, our clients, the City of Winnipeg and the Province. With each step we take forward, the merit of that strategic decision is only being reinforced.”

As Prime Consultants, Number TEN and figure3 are managing a large consultant team which also includes Winnipeg-based engineering firms SMS Engineering Ltd., Crosier Kilgour and Partners Ltd., as well as MCW / AGE Consulting Professional Engineers, RWDI Consulting Engineers & Scientists and change management specialist Turner Change Management.

The project is currently in progress, with a targeted move-in date of June 29, 2018.
