Gord’s first exposure to the world of architecture was through summer jobs as a student, building cottages in Muskoka. It was through this work that he acquired an appreciation for building details & systems, and the importance of careful placement of a building within a Site. He took this experience forward into different areas of construction before going back to school to pursue his passion for Architecture.
As Project Manager and Contract Administrator, Gord Doherty has managed the complex and multi-phased Toronto Reference Library revitalization project for the past nine years. In addition to project leadership, Gord provided consistent hands-on construction and woodwork expertise and thorough knowledge of library design and building technology throughout the comprehensive $34 million renovation of the 400,000 SF building. The Bram and Bluma Appel Salon event space, Special Collections Rotunda, TD Gallery, Study Pods, the Global Connect Wall and Idea Garden are only a few of the many innovative features Gord helped bring to fruition. For the renovation of the North York Central Library, completed in 2011, Gord ensured high-quality construction of a re-conceptualized interior environment that embraces technology and supports the library’s evolving and expanding role in the community. Gord has also lent his expertise to the design development phase of the Ismaili Centre in Toronto and a complex addition-renovation at Trinity College School.
