DIALOG has announced its merger with NXL Architects, expanding DIALOG’s science and technology practice. The practice includes the National Institute for Nanotechnology at the University of Alberta, research laboratories at the Calgary Cancer Centre, and a nation-wide renewal of Laboratories Canada facilities.


“DIALOG and NXL share a culture that is genuinely collegial and collaborative,” said Jim Anderson, DIALOG Partner and Chair. “Together, we bring an exceptional depth of experience and creative ingenuity to 21st century workplaces that contribute to the wellbeing of our communities and the sustainability of our environment.” 

In addition to major research laboratories for University of Toronto, York University, Ryerson University, Carleton University, UBC, and the University Health Network, NXL has completed more than four million square feet of complex process facilities for companies such as Novopharm (now Teva) Pharmaceuticals, Eurofins CDMO Alphora, Therapure BioPharma Inc., EmpowerPharm, and Septodont Canada.

“By joining forces, we can deliver projects for our clients at a larger scale and complexity and across a broader geographic reach,” said Jay Levine, DIALOG Partner and NXL Founding Principal. “We want to help grow a Canadian science and technology ecosystem by bringing together public institutions, private enterprise, and the development community.”

Jay joins DIALOG as the newest Partner and Science + Technology sector lead. He is based in the Toronto studio and will work with DIALOGers across the practice in San Francisco, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, and Toronto.
