It is with great pleasure that Nicholson Sheffield Architects Inc. announces the naming of Principal, Tim Wickens, to Fellowship in the College of Fellows of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (FRAIC). In recognition of Tim’s outstanding career, he is among 41 Canadian Architects to be elected for a 2024 Fellowship. A FRAIC nomination is the highest recognition a Canadian Architect can be awarded by their peers, bestowed to individuals who exemplify design excellence, outstanding scholarly contribution, and distinguished service to the profession and/or community. Tim will be one of six London area architects to receive this recognition since its inception in 1941.

A licensed architect since 2006, Tim has served as project architect on many local and national award and competition winning projects including Canadian Architect, Urban Design, OAA and Governor General’s awards. Tim has earned a broad architectural experience ranging from large-scale urban master plans to intimate single-family residences. Invested in making unique and powerful spaces through the study of place, context, site and landscape, Tim has a deep interest in and understanding of construction details and the integration of the work of related disciplines. His work is invested in care and understanding of the human condition. Tim takes particular pride in fulfilling the vision of the client, through careful consideration and synthesis of program, the innate qualities of site, and the resolution of architectural details.

In addition to his professional experience, Tim holds a Professional Bachelor of Architecture with Honours and a Post Professional Master of Architecture, both from the University of Toronto. He is committed to serving his community and his profession through volunteering and continuing engagement in education and mentorship.

Tim joins NSA Principal Jim Sheffield and Founding Principal John Nicholson as RAIC Fellows. Tim will be inducted to the College of Fellows on May 16, 2024, in Vancouver, BC.
