Who We Are

The Hulbert Group is an internationally recognised firm of architects, planners, and related professionals with head offices in Canada. The original firm was established in 1974 by Richard E. Hulbert to provide professional services to private and public sector clients.

Planning/Urban Design

We are better planners because, as architects, we are able to anticipate the realisation of our planning efforts. The Hulbert Group has planned developments ranging from compact plans for small groupings of homes to the master planning stage of the total re-development of Vancouver's Expo '86 site, including 12 million square feet of residential and commercial space in 42 towers, a $2.0 billion undertaking. We were also the chief architects and urban designers during the comprehensive rezoning phase for all 3 phases of the Coal Harbour waterfront development for Marathon Realty. This 2,500-unit, mixed-use urban residential neighbourhood in Downtown Vancouver includes 2 million square feet of commercial development.

The Vancouver Port Corporation commissioned us to master plan 3 million square feet of central waterfront, including a cruise ship terminal, hotel and office tower as well as a water-based transportation terminal and public-use heliport.

Off-shore work includes the $600 million internationally acclaimed resort community of Sanctuary Cove in Australia, complete with homes, hotel, marinas, commercial and recreational amenities.

Urban design experience includes rehabilitating the city centre of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and developing design guidelines for the City of Parksville on Vancouver Island.


As seasoned architects with world wide experience in accommodation, planning and design, our experience includes residential, low and high rise mixed use architecture as well as hotel, recreational, commercial, and institutional architecture. We have been the executive architects and planners for a number of integrated mixed-use resort developments throughout the Asia-Pacific region. Recent work in Canada includes landmark low-rise and high-rise housing developments, a 3 storey retail restaurant complex at Robson and Thurlow Streets in Vancouver and the Forintek research facility of the University of British Columbia


Communication is the cornerstone of our service. Our technical and personal skills expedite our projects' communication tasks. We are pioneers in the use of computers as design, technical and communication aids. We write widely about our clients' projects, and both private and public sector clients have engaged us to prepare and present information to obtain funding or assist in the marketing of our designs.
