The Embassy of the United Arab Emirates is looking forward to a brand new, custom built mission, which is expected to break ground in Sept., 2005. Ottawa-based Griffiths Rankin Cook Architects have been put in charge of the design, with Tony Griffiths as principal architect and Gordon Lennox as project manager. "We started in 2002 and we've been working on it since then," explains Mr. Lennox, an associate with the firm, who expects construction to last just one year.
