This award winning and LEED silver project with Remington Developments and Ridell Kurczaba Architecture was a new construction project for Hexagon’s Canadian headquarters.   The building design has two distinct wings linked by a clear-glazed two-storey lobby and was designed to incorporate the need for company scientists to conduct GPS testing with an unobstructed view from roof to sky and no tall buildings nearby.  The building is situated to take advantage of views to the west and was designed to integrate into the natural landscape of Nose Creek.  The new building created office space for 600 Hexagon staff, accommodating business offices and a training room, with ample space to offer seminars covering Hexagon’s most innovative metrology and manufacturing technologies including laser trackers, articulating arms, scanners, CMMs, software and automated solutions. The entire building complex covers almost 30,000 m².

EEEL UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY

City: Calgary, AB.
Branch: Allmar Calgary

Scope: Supply of the Stainless Steel Toilet Partitions, Washroom Accessories and Glass Walls.

The University of Calgary Energy Environment Experiential Learning (EEEL) building provides over 10,000 square meters of multi-disciplinary space for undergraduate laboratories, seminar rooms, group and individual study spaces, and research laboratories.

The façade was designed so that it would manipulate the sun in various aspects of the landscape surrounding the building, redirecting the sun’s rays in order to get the maximum amount of sunlight indoors, while ensuring that the outdoor area between the surrounding buildings would also be bright. Interior glass walls allow undergrads to continually observe teaching that is on display. Energy efficiency was another design priority, as the architects aimed to push energy efficiency to be 50 to 60 percent better than a typical lab building. An earth-tube stem will be used to heat and cool the building by using the earth’s near constant subterranean temperature.

STEPS CONDO DEVELOPMENT

City: Calgary, AB.
Branch: Allmar Calgary

Scope: Architectural Hardware, Hollow Metal Doors & Frames, Electronic Access Control and Installation.

The $31.2 million Steps condo project is one of Calgary’s most exciting boutique condominium developments.  Steps is a 122-unit development consisting of four six-storey buildings connected with an internal courtyard. The building acts as a bookend to the south of a park, and is located within walking and transit distance to downtown office and commercial areas. Additionally, there are numerous services and amenities in close proximity providing the opportunity for a healthy and less auto-dependent lifestyle for residents.  The development is organized to maximize solar exposure and views, while maintaining the integrity of the street. Apartments above the townhouses create an urban edge to the street and establish a safe public space. To maximize green space, parking is below-grade, and is accessed from the internal courtyard.  The modern architecture is indicative of Calgary’s future and the interior of each home has been optimized for luxury, comfort and contemporary living, including the latest in modern design featuring polished concrete floors, Italian inspired kitchens, spa-like bathrooms, built-in closets.
