Ed Applebaum has 30 years of experience as a senior member of Montgomery Sisam Architects, and has been a Principal of the firm since 1999. His widespread knowledge of different types of residences, ranging from long term care homes, retirement communities, student housing, and condominium complexes has been an asset to the firm as he brings a unique vision to each project.
Ed has been responsible for many local long term care and retirement projects, including Providence Healthcare and Amica Windsor’s retirement community. He has gained national experience working on the development of Long Term Care Design Standards for Prince Edward Island, in conjunction with the design of four new homes in the province. He was also the Principal-in-Charge of four innovative long term care homes developed in Nova Scotia, one of which received LEED Silver Certification. Currently, Ed is leading the Kipling Acres Redevelopment in Toronto, a Public Private Partnership pursuit for a long term care home in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, and Prominence Hill, a new retirement residence in Calgary.
While he remains dedicated to shaping the design of long term care facilities, Ed is also the Team Lead for the Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness, a complex, multi-disciplinary Public Private Partnership health care facility, and is responsible for much of the Planning, Design and Compliance scope. He is fulfilling a similar role in his work with Build Toronto, where he is developing a Master Plan for the Westwood Theatre property. In addition, Ed has been highly involved in a number of student residences, including the development of 45 Mann Avenue in Ottawa, as well as residential housing projects such as The Printing Factory Lofts.
With his continuing leadership as a board director of the Toronto Construction Association, Ed maintains close links with industry leaders to stay abreast of emerging trends and developments in the local construction market. As an active member of the Ontario Building Envelope Council for over 10 years, Ed has developed real expertise in the design of various building technologies, products and systems. Ed is also a member of the Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning Sustainable Energy and Building Technology Advisory Committee.
