Canada has maintained diplomatic relations with Vietnam since 1973 and since then, the relationship has continued to grow stronger. In celebration of this connection, B+H Architects was honoured to host Premier of Ontario Kathleen Wynne and the Ontario delegation as it toured our HCMC Studio on December 5th 2017, as part of her first business mission to Vietnam. The Premier put the spotlight on how the government is helping Canadian businesses stay competitive abroad and recognized B+H as a success story in the design and construction industry in Vietnam.
“We are delighted and honoured to participate in the Market Overview Session to the Ontario Delegates, discussing our experience in Vietnam as a Canadian architecture and design firm and highlighting our work in Canada and Vietnam. We are proud that Ontario is leading Canada in recognizing the potential of the Vietnam market. We hope that B+H can be of service to the Ontario government and can help support other Ontario enterprises interested in exploring Vietnam market” ~
~ Karen Cvornyek, B+H President of Asia.
B+H Architects was one of the first Canadian design firms to establish a presence in Vietnam in 2010 and has taken the next steps in strengthening the partnership between the two nations in the construction industry. The firm offers its clients extensive expertise in international design practices with a deep understanding of local culture, aesthetics, environment and regulations. B+H HCMC Studio works with multinational corporations, but a large percentage of its projects currently comes from local developers, institutions and governments. B+H’s success in Vietnam has been characterized by its win-win collaboration with many leading domestic enterprises, such as Saigon Trading Group, Phat Dat Real Estate Development Corporation, Nguyen Hoang Group, Tri Duc Group, and Coteccons on many high-profile projects across the country.
“Thanks to Vietnam’s unprecedented economic growth and the endlessly innovative spirit of the Vietnamese people, B+H is proud to be a partner in the transformation of Vietnam into a vibrant modern economy creating jobs and opportunities for all” said Karen Cvornyek. The DoubleTree by Hilton Ha Long Bay Hotel & Condotel in Quang Ninh, the Marriott Hoi An Resort & Spa, the Saigon District 12 Master Plan, Saigon Central Park, and Quang Ngai International Education Campus are just a few of the new generation of environments that will contribute to a robust socio-economic framework for Vietnam’s future.
