About Us

ADA Architecture Inc., a leading Saskatoon-based architecture firm incorporated in 1994 by it's founding principal & architect Arnold Dobroskay, has successfully designed and constructed hundreds of millions of dollars worth of projects in Canada, the U.S., British West Indies and China. The firm is sought out for its expertise on projects ranging from small interior and/or exterior design to large, complex institutional, commercial, retail and industrial buildings.

ADA Architecture’s creative collaborations on hundreds of projects of all sizes, scope and budget include nearly every market sector i.e.: industrial, process, institutional, teaching, laboratory, research, medical, commercial, hospitality, residential and resort facilities.

Today, ADA’s Saskatoon based independent studio of architecture is led by it's founding partner, Arnold Dobroskay. Arnold was born and grew up in Saskatoon where, in 1986, after completing his degree and internship, he began practicing as a registered architect. Arnold's personal goal has been to develop long term relationships as a trusted advisor built on a commitment to excellence, design, and technical proficiency. Arnold is proud that ADA currently has a second generation partner and son who values these same firm goals to help in carrying the torch to "create things better" for many years to come. In addition, a succession plan is in place to carry on the core values of the firm far into the future.

ADA chooses to work with clients who share this purpose and understanding and in turn we are able to focus our passion and expertise, develop a shared vision for the way it can be, and deliver a project that implements that vision. We believe that true success is a project that is "very good" in the eyes of both our client and ourselves. Current clients, for whom ADA continues to function as prime consultant, include the University of Saskatchewan, Government of Saskatchewan, Ministry of Central Services, City of Saskatoon, 20 VIC Management Inc., Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management, Saskatoon Health Region, Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies, Innovation Place, Cameco, PotashCorp, Continental Mine & Industrial Supply, RE/MAX Guardian Commercial, the Manitoba-Saskatchewan Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists and El-Rancho Food Services.


The firm is recognized and registered by the Saskatchewan Association of Architects, and is a full-service, architectural prime consultant providing design and related services for its clients. Services include project management, conceptual studies, detailed design, contract administration, comprehensive building science studies, development of marketing materials and strategies, building condition evaluations, building restoration and rehabilitation, historic preservation and restoration, interior design, code upgrades, renovations, building recycling, conversion, or modernization, and traditional architectural consulting and design.

The firm has extensive experience with the following building types: office buildings, churches, food and hospitality facilities, health care and dental facilities, institutional, laboratories, retail, sports and recreational facilities, hotels and vacation facilities, historic buildings, underground garages, high-rise residential, industrial and shopping malls.



KFC 3 Dimensional Rendering

ADA's commitment to continued education and state-of-the-art tools is also a reflection of ADA’s commitment to providing an outstanding final product and consistently exceptional service. Through the use of computerized design that far exceeds traditional CAD systems while being fully compatible with them, ADA’s clients benefit from streamlined, cost-effective approaches that not only assure a better product, but reduce errors and increase efficiencies. By constructing three-dimensional computer models for many of our projects they can be utilized in all aspects of the design and project delivery process [including schematic design, detailed design, working drawings, lighting and material studies, photo-realistic rendering, walkthroughs, animations, quantity takeoffs and cost estimating]. Our use of technology and data management systems also allows ADA to focus on best practices, innovative design, alternative solutions, client responsiveness and the incorporation of critical or timely changes.

Led by highly-trained architects and designers, ADA brings seasoned expertise and proven experience to each and every project. It has been and continues to be the personal passion, motivation and integrity of partners Arnold, Craig, and Aaron, however, that truly differentiate this firm from the rest. While most design firms speak of their client service, Arnold, Craig, and Aaron are dedicated to truly understanding and anticipating their client’s needs; to envisioning and realizing their dreams and desires wherever possible. Indeed, Arnold, Craig, and Aaron’s personalized service will thoughtfully guide your project from start to finish, and beyond.
