This was the first office building project for Libling Michener Architects.
According to Mel Michener, the design of the Manitoba Health Commission building in the late 1950s was an attempt to "set a new standard for institutional buildings in Winnipeg". Mel also indicated that the building was designed to have "good readability from the automobile". The design has simple lines from the street and then grows increasingly complex as the viewer moves closer.
