Parkin Launches 3D Print Challenge #3

Parkin has been using 3D printing as part of the interactive design process with its clients.  To encourage our staff to become more adept with the new technology, we launched our third 3D Print Challenge today.  The competition involves the selection of a building; preferable a Parkin-designed building and creating a 3D massing model of the building and the site.

Voting will take place on Friday June 1st, 2018 and results will be announced on Monday June 4, 2018.

Good luck to all teams.  We look forward to another great competition.

Parkin and SickKids Broke New Ground in Paediatric Patient Care

Eighteen years ago, Parkin and SickKids broke new ground in paediatric patient care, when the hospital needed to invest in an Image Guided Therapy suite to provide diagnostic treatments in an OR setting. Collaborative and creative efforts led to an addition designed to accommodate the spacial needs of the then-state-of-the-art equipment. This year, Parkin refreshed the suite to accommodate 2018 upgrades to the diagnostic equipment. Parkin’s research and innovative designs result in creative, feasible solutions—for today, and in the future.
