Overview: We have worked on over 25 projects for the City of Calgary. Some of the workplace projects include:
Admin Basement – As Prime Consultant our scope of work included a total re-build of all systems destroyed during Calgary’s 2013 Flood.
Building U – This project includes over 7,500 ft2 of interior tenant improvements to multiple areas of the space including the kitchen, work spaces and hallways.
9th & 12th Floors – Acting as the Prime Consultant, we created concept/pre-design options for this 55,000 ft2 multi-phased workplace design project that was initiated to unite staff from each department on to one floor.
We collaboratively worked with The City’s design department to demonstrated a commitment to sustainability; the 9th Floor is LEED Silver and the 12th Floor is LEED Certified.
Spring Gardens Building D – We converted this 14,000 ft2 abandoned building into an office and team gathering space for the City of Calgary’s Water Services Department North. This LEED Silver targeted project incorporates a connection to the resources that their department works to conserve.
Workplace Assessment – We developed an Index Tool for the City of Calgary’s Corporate Properties & Buildings (CPB). The index tool is used to assess work spaces for long-term strategic planning and will enable the CPB to consider which facilities require capital improvements during the upcoming budget cycle and beyond.
Calgary Transit, HandiBus – Along with the Tenant Improvements to the Dispatch Area, a new fitness facility was created to accommodate 4-5 users in the former Canadian Celiac Association space.
“On all occasions, the staff have honored deadlines, produced highly professional work products, and have collaborated constructively in order to assist in achieving the result of the best workspace possible for the budget allocated for the project.”
