Setting the Stage The National Music Centre spans two city blocks and is connected by a 42-metre-long bridge on the fifth floor, which has some of the most complex geometry on the exterior of the building.

National Music Centre garners world-wide attention By Melanie Franner The idea of a special facility that would celebrate the stories of music in Canada was one that had been percolating in Andrew Mosker’s mind for well over five years. It was an idea that, with a little persuasion, eventually caught on and one that is the main driver behind the awardwinning, architecturally inspiring facility that is now under construction in Calgary’s newly revitalized East Village. “It’s a game-changing project for Calgary,” states Mosker, president and CEO of the National Music Centre (NMC). “It

16

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

put Calgary on the national and international map for music in a completely new way.” Giving birth to an idea According to Mosker, the time for a place like NMC is long overdue. “For all the contributions that Canada has made in music over the years, we haven’t done a very good job of promoting them,” he explains. “This project will change all that.” And change that in a big way.

When the NMC opens in 2015, it will cover an expansive 160,000 square feet. It will include five floors of exhibitions that celebrate the story of music in Canada, diverse and engaging education programs, offer an unparalleled collection of musical instruments and sound equipment to visiting artists, feature live performances and house NMC’s ever-expanding collection of artifacts. The NMC will offer all of this – and more – in a way never before seen in Canada.

Once complete, the iconic building will cover an expansive 160,000 square feet, and include five floors of exhibitions that celebrate the story of music in Canada.

“We looked at the landscape of Canada, and particularly in Alberta—at the land formations, the canyons, and hoodoos,” explains Chelsea Grassinger, associate principal, Allied Works Architecture. “Then we looked to the spirit of music in Canada and we knew that the NMC had to elevate and amplify this spirit. From this was born the notion of

vessels, discrete elements to house the exhibitions, interwoven with interstitial or empty spaces in between to act as canyons of sound. We wanted the sound from the galleries and performance spaces to be a part of the overall building experience. From the very beginning, we wanted the opportunity for visitors to ‘play the building.’”

Anglia Steel has been serving Calgary and area for over 30 years. Our company details, fabricates, and erects structural steel and miscellaneous metals. A proud member of the Calgary Construction Association.

Creating these discrete vessels and canyons of sound meant designing a truly stunning architectural facility. And the architects were so in tune with this vision that the building concept, once unveiled, immediately garnered international acclaim. “The details of the design are quite complicated,” continues Grassinger. “Overall, the concept is simple and elemental, but the nature of the curves creates a geometry that is very complicated to build.” Complicated, yet inspirational. “I felt that if we didn’t do something at this level architecturally, then we would have a hard time selling it,” explains Mosker. “The story of music in Canada is a big one and we needed a gesture equal to that. A building like this not only captures people’s attention, it also shows that we’re serious about celebrating music in Canada; that we have a story to tell and it’s worth telling.”

CANA Construction had to use state-of-the-art tools and equipment on the National Music Centre such as 3D BIM modelling and two advanced robotic total stations for surveying the complex geometry.

Raising the bar Building such a complicated structure is stretching the limits of even the most experienced consultants and trades. The building stretches two city blocks and is connected via a 42-metre-long bridge on the fifth floor. The bridge itself spans two pedestrian sidewalks, four lanes of vehicular traffic, and the King Eddy hotel. It is 2.5 storeys high, with one level of occupied space on level five, and a mechanical and electrical distribution plenum below the fifth floor where

infrastructure crosses the bridge and feeds services to both blocks. The bridge is a fully enclosed interior space on level five. The bridge serves as a functional connection between the two blocks, but also as an event space with views of the East Village. “The bridge has some of the most complex geometry on the exterior of the building,” states Jason North, project director, CANA Construction. “The multiple curves and planes must transition smoothly as the curves move from block

to block across the bridge. The most difficult area of smoothing is located in four locations above the triangular windows at both ends and both sides of the bridge. These areas require twisted and bent framing studs in order to eliminate any kinks or wrinkles in the exterior cladding plane.” The bridge construction has necessitated closure of the street for a period of several months in order to erect a temporary bridge/working platform at level four. This temporary structure will

be used to support the bridge structure during erection, as well as provide a working platform for the framing and cladding installations; additionally, it will provide overhead protection to the pedestrians and vehicles that will pass under the bridge during construction after the road re-opens. “There are definitely a lot of unique

elements to this building,” notes North. “The architects provided us with the data files and there were some 900,000 data-points included. We’ve had to use some state-of-the-art tools and equipment on this project, like 3D BIM modelling. We are using two advanced robotic total stations for surveying the complex geometry.”

An example of one of the specific challenges posed on this project derives from the NMC’s own exhibit collection. “We have a theoretical art cube, which represents the biggest artifact piece in the building,” explains North. “That cube has to be able to be moved from one exhibit area to another so we had to use 3D computer modelling to plan out the duct and piping installations along the specific route it would take to ensure it would fit. In the end, we constructed a physical cube and are rolling it around the building to test the actual as-built route.” Gary Duke, project manager, Duke Evans Inc., calls the new National Music Centre “an iconic building”. “I’ve been doing this for over 30 years and have never experienced this level of complexity,” he states. With the concrete superstructure now complete, the construction crew has begun work on the structural steel. “It’s taken some very powerful modelling tools to pull this off,” explains Duke. “There is a lot of design integration within the architecture and structure. The geometry of the interior vessels and the exterior cladding, for example, is very complex. There is no concentric shape to anything. It’s a one-of-a-kind building. Nothing like this has ever been done before.” Another interesting construction element to the NMC is the rebuilding of the King Eddy Hotel (a landmark 1905 hotel that underwent an expansion in 1907), that will sit proudly as part of the west side of the NMC. “We were initially contracted to conduct a selective demolition required to complete the retrofit of the old King Eddy,” explains Ken Kirk, vice president, Bluebird Contracting Services. “It turned out to be quite an interesting project, evolving from a retrofit to a combined selective demolition and dismantling.” Unfortunately, the core wooden structure of the King Eddy couldn’t be salvaged. The original plan of reinforcing it with a structural steel frame had to be discarded in favour of building it anew, all the while dismantling the exterior façade,

brick by brick, so it could be reassembled at a later date. “It was very labour-intensive,” states Kirk. “We had to selectively demolish the wooden structure very slowly so that it took place in conjunction with the removal of the bricks. We worked hand-in-hand with the Clifford Group, who removed the brick façade. They

cleaned and catalogued each brick so they could be put back on in exactly the same place. It wasn’t an overly complicated job for us but it was a matter of working very closely with the Clifford Group to ensure that the deconstruction of the wooden structure didn’t get ahead of the removal of the bricks.”

The perfect setting The main focus of the NMC will be to tell the story of music in Canada in a way that will inspire and energize everyone who visits. Haley Sharpe Design was brought on board to accomplish just this aspect. “The stories within the NMC will connect internationally, nationally and locally – visitors, musicians and artists alike,” explains Jan Faulkner, principal exhibition designer. “The NMC can and will be a showcase and incubator for existing and emerging talent. The NMC is alive and kicking; it’s not about creating a retrospective or history experience. It’s about building on music foundations created by Canada’s rich history and embracing the power of music.” Innovative exhibits – like the Idea of Canada, where visitors are greeted with a digitally projected 360-degree film experience, or Body & Brain, where visitors explore the social histories and sciences behind our emotional connection to music – will be strategically located throughout the NMC. Additionally, there will be a variety of “galleries” or “stages”, which will facilitate live, “pop-up” performances within the displays. “NMC’s entire conceptual approach to how the exhibitions will be developed and presented is what makes this project really special,” explains Tyler Stewart, exhibitions project manager, NMC. “Our 21,000 square feet of exhibition stages are arranged by theme, instead of by genre, region, or time-period, so visitors can jump around from space to space based on their own interests. The idea is that we want to make visiting the NMC as exciting as going to a music festival.” The NMC will offer 22 individual exhibit stages, complemented by the “galleries” interspersed throughout. This translates into the need for very stringent temperature and humidity control throughout the entire facility. “This is not a typical bid and spec job,” explains Barry Cousins, vice president, Arpi’s Industries Ltd. “We were involved in the very early stages of the design so that we could help steer the ship, along

with the team, to meet the budget and, at the end of the day, to provide an effective mechanical system.” According to Cousins, the different exhibition spaces, galleries, and performance areas call for some pretty complex requirements. “The building has very small design tolerances as far as temperature and humidity deviations,” he explains. “We are also building a full-scale BIM model with tolerances as low as a few millimeters that will alleviate a lot of the on-site co-ordination conflicts that would regularly occur. Every job we do requires a certain level of modelling but especially with these types of jobs that are geometrically challenging and have limited spaces available like this one, the modelling is critical.” A statement worth making With a budget of $168 million, the NMC has raised a few eyebrows for more than just its impressive geometrical design. It has also called into question the sheer extravagance of such a building. “One of the hardest things about this project was convincing people that we had to stay true to our vision in order to attract national attention and ultimately long-term support,” states Mosker. “Creating an iconic National Music Centre in Calgary is a bold and ostentatious claim to make. We also pushed the innovation envelope to the point of being disruptive when it came to the design. But I think we’ve made a statement internationally about how serious we are about building the NMC in Calgary. And I think that statement will pay dividends in the years to come.” And if the recent past is any indication, Mosker may just have it right after all. “Now that the project is coming out of the ground, we’re seeing a gradual increase in engagement and participation from people who live in Calgary and outside the city,” concludes Mosker. “We’re starting to make ripples all across Canada – and beyond.” n

Calgary International Airport welcomes new runway in 2014, with construction of its terminal expansion well underway By Jillian Mitchell Photos courtesy of Arete Edmunds - Artline Photography

Upon completion, the International Facilities Project will more than double in size and feature a highly efficient curtain wall, radiant floor heating and cooling, and displacement ventilation, among supplementary eco-conscious features incorporated into the build that will facilitate further energy reduction.

Ten thousand Calgarians got up close and personal with the newest runway at Calgary International Airport (YYC) at a weekend celebration called Run and Roam the Runway, which was held in mid-June. The celebration commemorated the completion of The Calgary Airport Authority’s Runway Development Project (RDP), and featured live entertainment, specialty food trucks, and a display of vintage and commercial airplanes. Canada’s longest runway – at 14,000 feet (4,267 metres) long and 200 feet (61 metres) wide – welcomed its first flight on June 28, 2014, with a WestJet arrival from St. John’s, Newfoundland. A few minutes later, an Air Canada flight departing for Tokyo marked YYC’s first departure off the new runway. As a result of the runway’s completion, YYC will be able to accommodate

more flights and destinations, as it continues to grow and develop its already extensive route network. For Gary Ogston of the PCL/Parsons/ Dufferin Joint Venture group, the threeand-a-half-year road to completion was one he would not trade for the world. “It’s pretty rare to be able to work on a new runway project of this size in Canada,” says the senior construction manager. “It was a great project to be a part of, but it was little sad to see it come to a close. We’ve had such good teams working with us, people here and from all over North America.” as A team of 420 worked three years

around the clock to meet schedule demands of the Authority’s $620-million RDP, which encompassed the construction of the airport’s fourth runway, an aircraft parking apron, and two new taxiway underpasses, one of which provides public road access to a business park on airport property. The new runway, which runs parallel to the existing north-south runway 17R35L between the Air Terminal Building and 36 Street NE, features a Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) structure selected for its longer life cycle and low maintenance and repair costs. Its length is a direct result of the city’s elevation.

for The Calgary Airport Authority. “Not only is it Canada’s longest runway, but the project also incorporates state-of-art technology, such as a Category III (a) instrument landing system and LED lighting. It’s been a real team effort, but after three years and over two million hours, the runway is now in service.” As part of an over $2-billion Airport Development Program (ADP), the RDP and concurrent International Facilities Project (IFP) equate to the largest expansion in the airport’s 100-year history. Upon completion, the ADP is anticipated to better accommodate the region’s 14.3 million passengers annually, foster a balance between terminal and airfield capacity, and further solidify YYC’s position as an important economic growth generator for the city, region, and province. Construction is still underway on the Airport Development Program’s $1.4-billion IFP, which includes the expansion of the current terminal building, and will be the new home for international and transborder traffic at YYC. At 183,500 square metres, the fivelevel facility includes 22 additional aircraft gates (and future capacity for 36) and customs facilities for international and U.S. destinations. An additional 60 shops and services and a 300-room hotel will further complement the airport’s current 135 amenities and existing hotel. Construction of the IFP was divided into eight sections to meet the new concourse’s fall 2015 completion. On-site, crews have been simultaneously digging in the dirt on one end and finishing interiors on the other as they move west to east on the building’s construction. The last roof truss was installed in May 2014, and the entire expansion will be fully enclosed by mid-November 2014. “We’ve logged over 6.9 million manhours [on this project],” says Don Edwards, Director of the International Facilities Project for The Calgary Airport Authority. “We’ve have as many as up to 1,800 workers on-site daily.”

Though the terminal will more than double in size upon completion, energy costs will only increase by 25 per cent because of the facility’s many sustainable design principles, including co-generation power and low-flow plumbing fixtures. The IFP’s highly efficient curtain wall, radiant floor heating and cooling, and displacement ventilation, among supplementary eco-conscious features incorporated into the build, will facilitate further energy reduction. The new concourse has also been designed as photovoltaic-ready, whereby solar radiation will be converted into direct current electricity. A total of seven kilometers of conveyers powered by 5,000 variable-frequency drive motors will facilitate an eco-conscious baggage handling system that offers an additional 60-per-cent energy reduction. Furthermore, elevators and escalators have been eliminated wherever possible in favour of sloped floors (1:20 ratio) or moving walkways with variable-speed drives. Passengers travelling the one-kilometre distance between the existing terminal and the IFP will have three transport options: on foot, movable walkways or a Compact Transit System (CTS). These elements, in addition to new connection processes, will allow passengers to connect easily from international, transborder and domestic, while remaining post-security and without having to pick up and recheck their bags. The CTS is a unique system. Passengers, up to 10 per vehicle, will be transported from concourse to concourse along a secure corridor that is curently being constructed. “It’s all part of building an even better airport and passenger experience for the millions of people who travel through YYC each year,” says Edwards. The Authority will also ensure the seamless integration of new technologies incorporated into the facility, including an innovative call-to-gate model whereby passengers will be notified of their specific departure gate via digital screens approximately 30 minutes before boarding their aircraft. n

CCA Chair’s Report

Fabrizio Carinelli Fabrizio Carinelli, CCA chair and president of CANA Construction, stands in front of the CANA Group’s new state-of-the-art 80,000-square-foot head office developed by sister company, Shepard Development. Features of the building include modern elements such as a bright openoffice concept and raised floor HVAC system, along with rustic details such as sliding barn doors and wood paneling as a tribute to CANA’s 72-year presence in Western Canada.

I am extremely honoured and privileged to serve as the chair for 2014 as the Calgary Construction Association celebrates its 70th anniversary. The CCA has been, and continues to be, one of the most active local associations in the country. My term commenced on March 20, 2014, at the CCA Annual General Meeting and it was not without controversy, as less than 24 hours before the AGM dinner, our guest speaker, Premier Alison Redford, announced her resignation. Fast-forward to the fall and we now have our third premier in as many years. Jim Prentice and the Progressive Conservative Party have a lot of work cut out for them. It will be interesting to watch the new leader work his way into the bureaucracy and deal with the entitlement that abounds in government departments. With respect to the CCA, [Prentice’s] focus on streamlining infrastructure and tackling the Temporary Foreign Workers Program are initiatives that will not only serve our industry well, but also all Albertans. Education We are proud that the provincial government is supporting the Dual Credit Program for carpentry, a joint-venture between the Calgary Board of Education, the Calgary Catholic School District, SAIT, and the CCA. The program commenced in September 2014, for grades 11 and 12 students and we are excited about its impact. The eighth annual Construction Career Expo held in April 2014, had record attendance, with over 2,600 students. The expo encourages students to explore options for careers in construction and to learn about the industry in a hands-on way. This interest certainly bodes well for our industry as we endeavour to attract the next wave of our labour force that will be critical for our future. The CCA Owners, Architects, Engineers, and Contractors (OAEC) Workshop was also once again well-represented, and gave key stakeholders the opportunity to share their concerns and challenges in order to allow the industry to operate in a more efficient manner. CCA’s Youth Employment Program (YEP) awards eight previous YEP participants each year with a $500 scholarship. The

36

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

scholarships are awarded to individuals who have successfully completed the three-week work experience through YEP and are continuing to work in the construction industry, pursuing postsecondary education in the trades. Each individual goes above and beyond in his/her line of work, positively contributing to the construction community. CCA members also helped support CCA’s Try-A-Trade’s Equipment and Materials Project by donating over $50,000 of construction materials to 29 Calgary schools. These new materials enable the construction classes to provide safe and up-to-date equipment while demonstrating proper use. In September 2014, the Calgary Construction Association presented $2,500 scholarships (totalling $15,000) to six fourthyear students in SAIT’s Construction Project Management degree program. This is a new three-year commitment by the CCA, as $45,000 in scholarships will be presented to students in the Construction Project Management program through to the year 2016. Perhaps the strongest form of the CCA’s commitment to learning is the CCA Education Fund that allows the CCA to support many programs and scholarships for education. The 10th annual CCA Education Fundraising Golf Tournament was held on Thursday, August 28, 2014, at Carnmoney Golf & Country Club. Thank you to all the sponsors and participants who contributed to raising $65,000. The Education Fund trustees look forward to expanding their current scholarship offerings to individuals pursuing further education in construction. Government Action This year we have continued to meet with representatives of the City of Calgary to discuss a number of issues, including simplification of the Prequalification of Prime Contractors, guidance on the construction management process, and contracts and electronic e-bidding. On a provincial level, we continue to work with our partners at the Alberta Construction Association, advocating the government to ensure the procurement of construction services is executed in an efficient manner that makes sense to the industry,

so that we can deliver the needs for Albertans in a cost-effective and safe manner. We are also working with various ministries to ensure that the workforce required to address market demand is planned out in advance, starting with education and training at an early age. Industry/Social The 21st Annual Steacy Easton Memorial Classic Golf Tournament took place on Wednesday, June 11, 2014, and I would like to thank the golf-hole sponsors and everyone who came out to the tournament. Together, $7,200 was raised for the Canadian Cancer Society. The Women in Construction (WIC) committee hosted their first inaugural gala on June 17, 2014, featuring Arlene Dickinson of Dragons’ Den. With 450 people in attendance, this was one of the largest events the CCA has hosted. Dickinson is a strong advocate of women and what they are capable of accomplishing, and it was certainly an evening to remember. Gold Seal Project The CCA brought together CANA Construction and the National Music Centre, along with trade contractors, trades personnel, and many others who celebrated the recognition of the National Music Centre as a Gold Seal Project on August 13, 2014. The day welcomed presentations, highlighting the significance of Gold Seal certification and the partnerships that have been established between the various parties working together towards

The CCA has been very busy serving its members, building relationships within the construction industry, and supporting many education opportunities. the completion of the National Music Centre. As the construction manager of the National Music Centre, all of CANA’s working professionals on-site are either Gold Seal certified or are in the process of pursuing certification if eligible. This is an instrumental part of designating the National Music Centre a Gold Seal Project. Clearly, the CCA has been very busy serving its members, building relationships within the construction industry, and supporting many education opportunities. I look forward to working with the CCA staff for the remainder of my term as chair and appreciate their dedication and support. However, I would be remiss not to mention that the drive behind the CCA is composed of each of the members of the industry who volunteer their time to making our industry a better one. I believe the construction industry in Calgary will create many opportunities; and the CCA, along with each of its members, must continue to lead and push the boundaries to continue to be an effective voice for the construction industry. n

A Transportation Marvel Calgary’s Airport Trail is the longest tunnel in North America to sit under a runway

By Colleen Biondi Photos courtesy of City of Calgary Transportation

The construction industry, including the Calgary Construction Association, supported Mayor Nenshi’s vision for the airport tunnel, and leadership in moving it forward quickly. If the project had been put off the agenda for a later date, the tunnel’s price-tag could have doubled.

As cities grow, so do their infrastructural needs. Calgary is a perfect example, with a population breaching 1.2 million people. Efficient transportation is arguably the most critical of those needs and the newly-opened Airport Trail Tunnel is an iconic example of making sure the community can move themselves and their products from Point A to Point B as swiftly and safely as possible. After the October 2010 civic election, the tunnel – which allows for better access to the airport via Airport Trail, expands transportation options for northeast Calgary and ultimately, will extend eastward, attaching to Stoney Trail – was one of the first agenda items to be ap-

proved. The construction industry, including the Calgary Construction Association, supported Mayor Nenshi’s vision for the project, and leadership in moving it forward quickly. If the project had been put off the agenda for a later date, the tunnel’s price-tag could have doubled. The project got the green light in February 2011; excavating began that July. The City worked closely, from beginning to end, with the Calgary Airport Authority (CAA) Runway Development Program, consultants CH2M Hill, and the construction management group – PCL/ Parsons/Dufferin ATU Joint Venture, which was responsible for construction management. Along with making sure the tunnel was built on time and consistent with the City’s budget of $294.8 million, there were other considerations, explains Trevor O’Brien, project manager with PCL Construction. A new runway, which was already under construction, was designed to go over the centre portion of the tunnel. Thus, the tunnel crew’s building priority was to do their excavation and concrete work

in the centre first so the runway could continue its work above, then move out to the portals. Coordination and communication of services was crucial. “There were months and months of daily and weekly meetings. Where and how do we need everyone to be working, [as] there were up to 200 workers on site at peak times,” explains O’Brien. Because of the runway above and the anticipated 14,000-plus people driving below every day, safety was critical. “There is a sophisticated ‘life safety system’ inside the tunnel,” he adds, including a fire alarm system (with horns, pull stations, a public phone, extinguishers, and a dry-stand pipe for Calgary Fire Department hose connections), as well as heat, smoke, and gas detection. There are 32 jet fans, weighing 2,000 pounds each, which are tied into the fire alarm system and are activated through the detection of gas or smoke (the tunnel will be closed if fire and/or smoke is detected). There are cameras with remote access to make sure tunnel activities and operations can be viewed at all times. Workers also needed protection. Due to steep excavation slopes, which minimized the excavation footprint and reduced both the impact on the runway development program and the backfill cost and schedule, highway-type mesh and anchors were needed at the face to keep loose rocks from falling down. “Even a small rock falling from 16 metres can hurt you,” O’Brien states. Measures like these were worth it; over the three-year working period, there were no serious incidents. The tunnel team worked hard to integrate sustainability features into this

project. They adhered to the City’s policies regarding maintaining soil, minimizing erosion and spills, and not using chemicals that could go into the stormwater system. And since water will accumulate at this site, a fully-automated, 1,100-square-metre storm-water lift station has been designed to collect excess surface and ground water and move it out to a nearby pond. A distribution system managed waste responsibly and recycled and reused whenever possible. In excess of 600,000 cubic metres of earth and rock were excavated (equivalent of 84 million spade shovels full) for the job. There are 2.5 kilometres of water and storm-water pipe, 45 kilometres of electrical conduit and over 12,000 tonnes of reinforcing steel – equivalent to about 30 airplanes (747-style jets) – contained in the tunnel. A total of 50 concrete sections were poured for the project. Each section required 850 cubic metres of concrete, delivered by 80 trucks over a 12-hour period. The final product is a tunnel 620 metres long, 36 metres wide, and seven metres high. To the best of O’ Brien’s knowledge, this is the longest tunnel in North America to sit under a runway. The tunnel opened on May 24, 2014, with a big splash, advises Henry Wong, project manager with the City of Calgary. Thousands of Calgarians attended an on-site party, hosted by Mayor Naheed Nenshi and city councilor Jim Stevenson. There was a classic car show inside the tunnel, Calgary Police and Calgary Fire Department personnel, live music, children’s activities and plenty of food provided by local food trucks. Ed Tanas, one of the first people to drive through the tunnel, posted a video to YouTube that has received over 14,000 views. At day’s end, none of this could have been accomplished without team work. “The relationship we developed with the City and the consultants wasn’t typical. It just felt like we were on a big [collaborative] team with no dividing lines. I’ve never been involved with a project like that before,” says O’Brien. “There is something about being under the gun that that gets you together to find solutions and to keep people focused.” n

It’s been just over a year since the flood swept through Calgary, leaving a path of destruction in its wake. St. Patrick’s Island – its reinvention as a public place of refuge – did not escape nature’s onslaught. “We were three months away from opening at the time of the flood,” explains Susan Veres, vice-president, Marketing and Communications, Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), the wholly owned subsidiary of the City of Calgary tasked with the mandate to implement and execute the City’s urban renewal plan. “We had been working on the project for four years and it was absolutely heartbreaking to watch.” The flood added another full year to the construction schedule of the bridge; it was scheduled to open in October 2014. St. Patrick’s Island park is now anticipated to be open to the public the following fall, in 2015. “The flood devastated the bridge,” states Bill Campbell, senior operations manager, Graham Construction & Engineering, a JV, who adds the loss of the temporary construction supports needed to build the bridge left the newly laid deck unsupported. Excessive water pressure lifted and twisted the bridge deck,

rendering it useless. “As a result of the flood, we had to completely redo things. The old deck needed to be demolished and removed before it could be replaced with a new one.” According to Campbell the timing of the flood could not have been worse. “If it had occurred just a few weeks later, we would have had time to finish securing the deck and remove the shoring. The bridge deck would have survived.” Spanning the space of time The new St. Patrick bridge will differ from its predecessor (established in 1965) in that it will extend to the north bank of the Bow River (in addition to forging a link between the East Village and the west end of the island) and it will touch down on St. Patrick’s Island. RFR of France and Halsall of Calgary won the bid for the bridge design, which consists of a solid-cast concrete deck and a series of continuous arches aligned with the river channels and the island. It is said to be reminiscent of the path of a skipping stone across the river.

According to Veres, the goal of the design was to have a simple, yet elegant span that was functional and had a minimal impact to the island park. “The bridge structure was actually very detailed,” says Campbell. “The design load required some very complicated construction engineering. The concrete deck required three months to cure to ensure that it was the proper size. The curing had to be completed before we could transfer the load and support it with the cable system. We waited over 90 days to complete the shrinkage and creep and we monitored it very closely to ensure that there weren’t any cracks.” Campbell says that the construction company worked very closely with the French designers. “It was a very interesting and very intense project,” he says, adding that the company has only to remove the support berms and do some remedial work on the bridge system before its job is complete. A living oasis St. Patrick’s Island is one of the oldest parks in the city, albeit it had fallen into disuse and neglect over the years. Its history began in the late 1890s and its storied past includes everything from auto parks to campgrounds. All of that changed in July 2011, when a master plan was unveiled by CMLC and put in place – a plan that would reinstate the island to its former glory and, in the process, offer Calgarians a tranquil escape back to nature.

With 10 main design elements that include family-friendly play zones and quiet respite areas for those seeking a connection to nature, St. Patrick’s Island will offer Calgarians a unique space within an educational and informative environment.

“We engaged the public in a discussion about what to do with the island,” explains Veres. “[The public] told us that they wanted the island park to be an oasis; mostly passive and not heavily programmed. Calgarians wanted to be able to run it, walk it, and dip their toe in the river waters, so to speak. They wanted spaces in which to gather and spaces in which they could break away from their busy days. Most importantly, they didn’t want it to be over handled; they wanted a gentle touch to its redesign.” CMLC put out a tender that would help transform the words of Calgarians into reality. The winning bid came from New York-based W Architecture and Landscape Architecture, LLC and its partner, Denver-based Civitis, Inc. “The site was very unusual in that it was an island on a river located right next to the city’s downtown,” explains Barbara Wilks, principal and founder, W Architecture and Landscape Architecture. “Plus, it was an underutilized space. Our goal was to make it a more natural site and a place that would appeal to the people of Calgary.” Part of the work that went into developing the master plan was to attain a comprehensive base of information about the

island itself, including cultural and historical research, social context, geological, ecological and river hydrological summary. All of this information came under consideration in creating the “biophilic” design to enhance the natural attributes of the habitat and “create a living island in an active park.” The result of work on this biophilic design came in the form of a three-year program that entailed first cataloging and recording all the living species on the island, identifying the native ones, and ensuring that the habitat is such that it encourages these native species to thrive. The development of the master plan also had other benefits, most notably for the landscape designers. “We were very fortunate in that we had the advantage of the master plan,” adds Wilks. “We did a careful reading of that plan to ensure that we would meet the needs of the people and the environment.” The landscape design firms set about creating a more natural habitat, one that would foster the island’s native birds and plant species. It re-opened some of the island’s waterway channels that had been filled in previously in order to create a more enhanced sense of being on an island. And it made more prominent the edges and tips of the island to again enhance this sense of space. One of the bonuses in taking

the island back to its former time came to fruition after the flood. “We were very happy to see that the natural flow of the river was through the water channels that we had unearthed,” states Wilks. “It was nice to see that we had it right, that we were following Mother Nature’s design.” A place to be With 10 main design elements that include family-friendly play zones and quiet respite areas for those seeking a connection to nature, St. Patrick’s Island will offer Calgarians a unique space within an educational and informative environment. The island’s most recent role as an underutilized and wasted site will soon be in the distant future, as CMLC prepares to reinstate it back to a destination place – one that will prove more attractive than a car park or campground. “The most rewarding part of this project is that we are delivering 31 acres of park space back to the City of Calgary,” concludes Veres. “We’re helping Calgarians reconnect with this newly revitalized space by linking it to two of the city’s exciting communities: the East Village and Bridgeland. The island will be a place of discovery, of education and of rest, and one that will hopefully hold great appeal to the people of Calgary.” n

FEATURE | Calgary Ring Road

Ring in the New

Green light for next two sections of Calgary’s Ring Road By Melanie Franner Work on the Southwest Calgary Ring Road – the final portion of the ring road that will complete the circle around the city – is underway. The final section, which will be constructed in two phases (southwest and west) because of the level of complexity of the project, is expected to carry upwards of 80,000 vehicles per day in the next 20 to 30 years – a huge number that will most certainly ease the commuting time for many Calgarians. That number, which is a subjective estimate of Garry Lamb, urban construction manager, Calgary, Alberta Transportation, is in line with the three sections of the ring road that are already complete. “When the Southeast Calgary Ring Road section opened, the traffic went to 35,000 vehicles a day within weeks,” states Lamb. “The Northwest Calgary Ring Road, which has been open since 2009, gets over 50,000 vehicles a day in some sections.” Regardless of just how many thousands of vehicles end up using the Calgary ring roads, suffice it to say the drivers of those vehicles will find their commutes easier, quicker, and more suited to their needs than the current situation. If all goes according to plan, the shovels will be in the ground for the Southwest Calgary Ring Road by the summer of 2016. Requests for Qualification on the West Calgary Ring Road should follow shortly thereafter. But construction wasn’t always going to happen so quickly. Partnering with First Nations While discussions on the Calgary Ring Road dates back more than 60 years, in 2005, the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the provincial government began talks around the potential of aligning part of the Southwest Calgary Ring Road across the reserve. In 2009, the Tsuu T’ina Nation voted against the proposed agreement and Alberta Transportation began looking at

other options. In 2011, both the province and the Tsuu T’ina Nation came back to the table and a new discussion ensued. The result was the formal signing of an agreement in November 2013. The agreement will see the Tsuu T’ina Nation sell 428.1 hectares of its land to the government of Alberta in exchange for: the transfer of 2,038 hectares of Crown land; $340.7 million ($275 million for the land, plus an additional $65.7 million to cover the impacts to the reserve, such as existing residential housing and communal facilities that will need to be removed and rebuilt); and approval for the Nation to purchase an additional 129.5 hectares of Crown land for $1.6 million. “This agreement is vital to the project,” states Lamb. “Acquiring the right-of-way across their property allows the project to move forward. This is the best solution from a building perspective. I believe that this agreement is key to the success of the ring road.” Lamb anticipates it will take about a year for the government and the Tsuu T’ina Nation to each fulfill their obligations under the agreement, at which point the land transfers will be complete. Alberta Transportation will use this time to identify and work through utility implications (such as highvoltage power and gas lines). It will also develop a business case for construction of the project. “Alberta Transportation is recommending that we build both final [phases] as P3s,” says Lamb, referring to the publicprivate partnership model. “We will write the business cases and present them to the independent committee, which will make a recommendation on whether to proceed as a P3.” If accepted, the P3 proposals will go to the Alberta Treasury Board and from there, out to tender. A P3 proposition The Southwest Calgary Ring Road will stretch from 69 Street SW to Highway 2A, while the West Calgary Ring Road will run from Highway 1 to 69 Street SW. Although Alberta Transportation will treat the two sections of the Southwest Calgary Ring Road as two separate projects, it expects that both will end up being P3 projects, one starting after construction of the other begins. “The agreement with the Tsuu T’ina Nation has a time limit of seven years to complete the construction of the Southwest Calgary Ring Road, once the land transfer is complete,” states Lamb. “For this reason, we are currently planning to make the Southwest Calgary Ring Road our first project.” Once the land transfer is complete, Lamb anticipates that it will take another full year before construction on the Southwest Calgary Ring Road can begin.

The RFPs will allow the three groups to design the project to the extent that they can make accurate bids, which will include costs for the operations and maintenance of the road for 30 years. Once the Southwest Calgary Ring Road has advanced into the construction stage, Alberta Transportation could then begin working the West Calgary Ring Road project. “We’re now working on our fifth P3 project in the province,” says Lamb. “We’ve done three in Edmonton and two in Calgary. For us, the Southwest Calgary Ring Road is certainly the most complex of the projects because of the high number of major water crossings.” The Southwest Calgary Ring Road project will include 37 bridges (including ones over the Elbow River and Fish Creek), not to mention one rail underpass and 13 interchanges over 16 kilometres of six- and eight-lane divided roadway. “The project will require a realignment of the Elbow River in order to get a feasible bridge crossing,” explains Lamb. “This, in itself, poses a unique challenge. The realignment will respect natural river curvatures’ length and slope. The river will be able to continue to naturally meander both upstream/ downstream of the crossing location.”

The other challenging river crossing is the bridge over Fish Creek. “Although this isn’t a major crossing, it is significant because it has fish in it, so we have to protect the fish habitat,” states Lamb. “The contractor will be required to complete an Environmental Construction Operations Plan prior to the commencement of construction activity, which will identify the necessary mitigations measures required to protect the environment, as well as to meet all provincial and federal regulatory requirements.” The West Calgary Ring Road is no “walk in the park” either. It will cover 15 kilometres of six- and eight-lane divided roadway, 29 bridges (including ones over the Bow River and Elbow River) and seven interchanges. An additional 10 kilometres of connector roads and interchanges will also need to be completed for the two projects. A new path forward Once the Southwest and West Calgary ring road projects are complete, Calgarians will have access to more than 100 kilometres of free-flow freeway that will offer safe and efficient travel. Better yet, it will help to ease traffic congestion all across the city – enabling Calgarians to reduce their commute time and hopefully, find more time for the things they enjoy. n The CONSTRUCTOR 2015

THE CONSTRUCTION CHALLENGE – A SKILLED WORKFORCE CCA President Dave Smith

The 1.1-million-plus citizens of Calgary have experienced tremendous growth over the past decade. Watching our city skyline change, with billions of dollars being invested annually in various new developments, is of great interest to the locals – and in particular, that of the construction community. As we look at all quadrants of the Stampede City, we see new high-rise office towers, business parks, retail shopping centres, schools, hospitals, and fire-stations being built, along with a massive airport expansion that matches that of any major metropolis in the world. In addition, we have experienced the extensive expansion of Calgary’s transportation infrastructure, such as Calgary’s Light Rail Transit system, which continues to be one of the best utilized transit systems in North America. And it won’t be long before construction starts on the fourth and final leg of the Calgary Ring Road.

The City of Calgary continues to process development permits for major projects, such as the audacious design of the new twisted Telus Sky tower, which will complement the beauty of The Bow. A stunning new central library will be built in East Village and the design has already been compared to the worldfamous Biblioteca Alexandria, a major library and cultural centre located on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea and a must-visit if you ever tour Egypt. The new library structure will be built parallel to the Calgary Municipal Building. Not far from the new library is the National Music Centre, with its steelskeleton structure already piercing Alberta’s cobalt blue sky. These two new structures are only the start of a contemporary East Village landscape, which not all that long ago was composed of nothing more than old, derelict buildings, along with a retailer that sold fresh fish and lobster from the Pacific and Atlantic

Ocean to those of us who reside in this land-locked city. In addition to these public buildings, private developers are constructing numerous high-rise condos that are selling fast. It won’t be long before the East Village will be built-out to Fort Calgary and the area will be a new home to 11,000 Calgarians. How is this tremendous growth possible? It cannot just be a “pipe dream” of the oil and gas industry that drives Alberta’s economy. The International Energy Agency (IEA) is forecasting global oil demand will soon climb to 94 million barrels per day. And over the long term, the IEA is forecasting that world energy demand will increase by 33 per cent over the next two decades, partially driven by the expanding middle class in countries such as India and China. Over $284 billion in investment is planned for the Canadian oilsands by 2035, which means our current popula-

tion of 4.1 million Albertans will have grown to six million people who will call the province their home. All of this new growth over the coming years comes with many challenges. The number-one challenge in the eyes of the directors of the Calgary Construction Association (CCA) is that of a skilled workforce for the future of the construction industry. Canada’s aging population is of major concern. In the late 1950s, Canada’s population grew at a rate of 2.8 per cent a year. By 2050, it is projected that Canada will grow by only 0.7 per cent annually. With these statistics, Canada’s Federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenny may have to change his view on the Temporary Foreign Worker program, at least for the province of Alberta. Over the past decade, Canada has opened its doors to approximately 250,000 immigrants and refugees annually. Over time Canadians have become more accepting of immigrants, compared to that of Europe, where the attitude towards immigration is negative. One thing many

The number-one challenge in the eyes of the directors of the Calgary Construction Association (CCA) is that of a skilled workforce for the future of the construction industry. Canadians agree with is that immigration is necessary if Canada is to sustain its economic growth. Is immigration of skilled trades a piece of the puzzle? We think so. In addition to a slow-down in the population growth, Canada’s graying population is projected to increase by 110 per cent for citizens 65 years and older, as the number of Canadian seniors in 2011 was 4.945 million and is projected to grow to 10.379 million by 2036.

The Calgary Construction Association is moving forward with several initiatives to address the human-resource shortage issue, such as the creation of the Women in Construction Committee, whose slogan is “YES WE CAN”. Not all that long ago, I knew of only one project manager who was a woman; now, women PMs are in the office of every major general contractor, and one general contracting firm in Calgary is made up entirely of women. Past CCA chair (2004) Serena Holbrook, along with 2015 incoming CCA chair Stephanie Roll, are working diligently to have more women become role-models and mentors of young ladies who are considering building their career in construction. Currently, women make up less than 15 per cent of the workforce in construction. Another concern of the construction industry is that during the past 25 years, fewer Canadians have chosen to work in skilled trades – 11.6 per cent of working Canadians in 1987 versus 9.7 per cent in 2011. The result is a shortage of workers for professions ranging

from painters to refrigeration and airconditioning mechanics. The Canadian Construction Association notes that one in every 14 Canadians works in the construction industry, and that there will be 319,000 construction workers needed from coast to coast between now and 2020. With that, the Calgary Construction Association has undertaken the task to encourage today’s youth to build a career in construction by attending career days at high schools throughout Calgary and region.

Few people realize that in 2011, 12.1 per cent of adults aged 25 to 64 had trade certificates, compared to 25.9 per cent of adults who had university degrees. And of those individuals, on a national basis, the average weekly wage of a full-time worker aged 25 to 34 with a trade certificate increased 14 per cent from 2001 to 2011. For those with bachelors degrees, it increased only one per cent over that same time-frame. Another initiative under taken by the CCA to address skilled shortages is

the annual Construction Career Expo, which offers youth in high school the opportunity to get their hands on the tools. The CCA Expo is the largest in Canada, and is known for being the best career expo by shop teachers that work with the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) and the Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD). Kudos to all the construction trades and participants who make this event the success that it is. The CCA Youth Employment Program (YEP), which commenced in 1998, is solely financed by the construction industry and offers youth a work experience with the goal of becoming an apprentice in the trade in which they have a desire to work. On average, 55 young individuals have been hired fulltime annually as a result of YEP, and many of those young men and women have since entered into a construction trade apprenticeship program. The most recent initiative undertaken by the CCA is the Dual Credit Program, which is a partnership with the CBE, CCSD, SAIT, and the Alberta Government. This program, which will commence soon, will give grade 11 and 12 high school students the opportunity to study carpentry for half of their school year; and on completion of Grade 12, the students will have their high school diploma, along with their first-year apprenticeship. This will build a new career pathway for students who will continue their studies at SAIT upon high school graduation. Both SAIT and NAIT Polytechnics note that following high school it takes, on average, seven years for a young person to get back into the school system to learn a trade. The CCA Education Fund, which has raised in excess of one million dollars, offers tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships annually, giving students the ability to carry on their studies, realizing advanced education is empowerment. And the construction industry realizes empowerment leads to enhanced productivity – a win-win for the employer and their employee. With the skilled labour shortage and all the other challenges of change, the spirit of the construction community welcomes everyone who wants to roll

drooling over their favourite rock star. These so called “stars” know little about the oilsands, which account for approximately 1/1,000th of global green-housegas emissions. Few people realize the oil and gas companies are working together to solve environmental issues and have pooled their intellectual property for the collective good under Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance. The CCA will continue to pursue similar efforts in having the construction industry stakeholders become better at what they do. The annual Owner, Architect, Engineer, and Contractor (OAEC) Workshop brings all the industry partners together to share in building better structures, utilizing new and innovative project-delivery methods. While the Calgary Construction Association continues to liaise with the City of Calgary on numerous issues from prequalification to payment for services, the industry is looking forward to working with Alberta’s new premier. Jim Prentice has deep roots in the corporate world, as well as federal and provincial politics. Prentice is a listener, which is good for all industries, and he believes “team work” is the key to success. While Alberta’s Tory party’s tenure is the longest in Canadian history, we can be sure Prentice will not rely on the past, knowing the resignation of our last premier amid scandal. Prentice believes in responsible resource development, understands that government has a role to play in generating prosperity, and is disciplined about public expenditures. For example, just three days after being sworn in as the premier, he axed the government’s fleet of four aircraft, which was costing Albertans $10 million dollars a year. Prentice has worked extensively with aboriginal groups and with his political connections throughout North America, he may just be the one to solve the issue of market access for Alberta’s oil and gas sector. With Prentice being the new team captain for Alberta, it appears we have a winner, and the Tory streak and Alberta’s vibrant economy will continue. GREAT NEWS FOR ALL CANADIANS. n

A Function of Education The Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning will be a University of Calgary icon

By Colleen Biondi

The $40-million Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning is set at the centre of the University of Calgary campus and features an architecturally-unique design with LEED Gold designation that will lead the university into a place of educational excellence.

There is no question the building itself will be a marvel. Consider an architecturally-unique design with LEED Gold designation at the centre of the University of Calgary campus, framed by the Engineering and Kinesiology departments and the MacEwan Student Centre, offering a clear sightline to the West Campus of the future. The $40-million price tag for the initiative is being totally covered by philanthropists Ruth and Don Taylor of Calgary, who are dedicated to enhancing teaching skills and learning opportunities at the university level. But more to that, the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning (“the Institute”) will represent a one-of-a-kind academic framework that will lead the university into a place of educational excellence and be a model for other institutions. The vision for the Institute will also align powerfully with the university’s progressive “Eyes High” strategic direction. There will be three key components

in the Institute: an educational development will help faculty develop as teachers, design effective learning experiences for students, and integrate technologies to enhance student success. A scholarship of teaching and learning group will help colleagues conduct research on their teaching methods, fostering critical inquiry about the student experience. There will also be a College of Discovery, Creativity and Innovation where students can participate in programs to introduce them to a research-way of thinking – asking questions, thinking critically, evaluating knowledge, and applying it to solve problems, both small and global (think sustainability, food security, social justice). The “college” learning experience will emphasize hands-on work and experiential learning. These three components will work in concert. “They are not three separate bubbles,” says Lynn Taylor, vice-provost of teaching and learning at the Univer-

sity, “but a highly overlapped Venn diagram.” Prior to the Institute’s grand opening in early 2016, Taylor has a lot of work on her agenda. Much has to do with building the support network for this enterprise and educating and creating buzz among faculty and students about the project. There needs to be policies and procedures, administrative mechanisms, and reward systems put into place. “What keeps me up at night is building that community before the walls go up.” But don’t be mistaken. Taylor is hooked. “If I were to build my own sandbox, this would be it. It is a wonderful project.” University architect Jane Ferrabee agrees. She has been involved with many campus projects, but this one is “enormously compelling,” she says. The Institute is being built on the site of the former Nickle Arts Museum, which was relocated to the Taylor Family Digital Library two years ago and re-

named the Nickle Galleries. The former building’s foundation is being used for the new building, honouring the history of the site, but giving it a new life. The building will be pavilion-style, unattached to any other structures and will amp-up its accessibility. Two-storied and full of flexible, tall and open spaces, a visitor will be able to see to the second floor from a variety of angles at ground level in the large public atrium space. Walls will be movable with the ability to reconfigure small, intimate spaces into larger rooms and vice-versa. Spaces will be used by faculty and students, but also by the community for public forums or TED talks. The outside will be primarily metal, but will have mosaic hues, which Ferrabee refers to as a treatment that mixes colours in an apparently random fashion, to soften the look. Glass will be used strategically, allowing in natural light to help with passive solar heat and daylighting where appropriate; it will also meet the need for darkness, in order to project learning resources. The Taylor Institute will not have masses of carpet, nor will it be over-finished: “It will

ultra-low-flow fixtures; point-of-use heaters will be incorporated at low-use locations like kitchen sinks and coffee stations. Natural materials will be used, including Forest Stewardship Councilcertified woods and structural steel. Local plants and grasses, requiring less irrigation, will predominate in the outside landscaping. Features like these will result in a building which will operate in super-efficient style – 75 per cent better than the minimum qualifications for LEED Gold. The building’s most compelling feature will be a large, glass-covered atrium space that bisects the building. It will cantilever out to the west and east and sit proudly above the rest of the building. It will be lit at night, giving it an appealing, translucent glow. This public interior “street” will be the “organizing principle of the building.” And it will highlight the fact that this is far from a traditional, academic structure. “It will be tactile and engaging; truly exceptional,” adds Ferrabee, who credits Toronto-based architects Diamond Schmidt and Calgary-based architects Gibbs Gage. The two firms are working jointly on the venture, which accounts for the spectacular design. Others appear to be sharing her impression. Calls are coming in from institutions all over North America inquiring about the design and operations of the building, as well as about the philosophy and vision of the Taylor Institute. Presiding over the build itself and hanging out at the on-site office is construction manager Darick Schmidt from CANA Construction. CANA is no stranger to the University of Calgary; over half the buildings have a CANA connection and the company is also building two new residences on the campus. CANA signed on with this project in October 2012. Schmidt and his team broke ground in August 2013, and completed the demolition that fall. They tendered for the design work and moved to the office site in January 2014. Foundational elements are done and the structural steel and glued-laminated timber,

The building exterior, including glazing and metal cladding, is almost finished to allow for interior fit-out and finishes to commence winter 2014. “It is a very unique project,” explains Schmidt. The central location lends itself to lots of faculty and students walking by, looking around and asking questions. The construction site itself interrupts their normal flow on cam-

pus; they need to find new ways around the site, as well as adjacent construction sites. As a result, Schmidt is concerned with safety and coordination issues in this regard. “We are ensuring we run the operation smoothly and safely, to have as minimal an impact as possible to university life.” Schmidt got involved with the Institute in the pre-construction phase. This value-added management model allowed him to participate in and con-

tribute to planning discussions addressing issues like constructability and financial viability early on. Originally the plan called for an allsteel structure, but the design team wanted to add a softening, wood element with glulam beams. Schmidt priced glulam and found that the majority of the beams could be supplied and installed for the same cost as steel, while contributing to the architectural design. All the building columns will be steel and some of the ceiling beams, as well. On the flip side, the team hoped to keep the original super-structure in place, but there was so much deterioration that it was cheaper to demolish it and put new steel in. “The cost would be simply too great to salvage it,” explains Schmidt. There was another silver lining to the demolition choice, as over 90 per cent of the resulting waste was recycled. There have been – and will continue to be – challenges along the way, mostly involving logistics. The steel company, Glenmore Fabricators Ltd., will be manufacturing and fabricating the steel at its yard and will transport it in huge steel pieces to the site, so road permits will be needed for that to happen. Over 110 inch-slab floor boxes for audio visual, power and data communication connections need to be installed in conjunction with structural reinforcement, insulation, radiant heating/cooling lines and conduit. The emphasis will be to organize all the steps and processes in a harmonized fashion. And that will happen, because the project team – truly greater than the sum of its parts – is not afraid to tackle the tough issues and make the hard decisions in a timely way so that scheduling is smooth and finances are not negatively impacted. “We have lots of open discussions,” says Schmidt. At the grand opening, Schmidt will enjoy seeing the building function, the students and staff enjoying the space, and seeing the Taylors’ vision realized. “That will be my moment of pride,” he concludes. n

It’s Your Future Too

The Calgary Construction Association’s Youth Employment Program (YEP) opens up doors of opportunity for both workers and industry By the Calgary Construction Association

Mackenzie Allen, first-year apprentice with Custom Electric, hard at work at the University of Calgary Residences project.

According to BuildForce Canada (formerly referred to as the Construction Sector Council), it is estimated that Alberta’s construction industry will require 21,000 new workers from 2014-2021. In addition, it is predicted that industry will be seeking almost 10,000 workers from outside the province. With retirement amounting as permanent losses in the workforce, an abundance of skilled labourers will prove difficult to find. In an effort to assist the industry in securing a qualified and dedicated workforce within Alberta, the Calgary Construction Association’s Youth Employment Program (YEP) has evolved to assist people of all ages in entering the construction industry.

74

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

YEP was initiated in 1998, with the goal to attract and retain quality workers to the construction industry. In order to do so, YEP thoroughly interviews individuals aged 16 and up by asking them a series of questions pertaining to knowledge of the industry and, if qualified, places them for three-week paid-work experiences in the industry. All YEP candidates are CSTS-certified and ready to work. Over the last 14 years, YEP has assisted hundreds of youth in finding meaningful work experiences in a variety of trades such carpentry, plumbing, electrical, sheet metal, glazing, and more. What allows the placements to be successful is chiefly due to the compa-

nies and employers who believe in the program and in providing young people with opportunity. Custom Electric’s Scott Gibson joined the YEP Committee in May 2013. Since joining, Custom has hired 15 starter electricians, all of whom have been extremely successful and have started their journey through the apprenticeship program. “The YEP program has proven to be a great tool in staffing our projects as entry-level trade positions become available. The program offers pre-screened individuals complete with CSTS training and a genuine interest in the trades for employer placement. This program will continue to be a valuable tool in connecting high-potential individuals with

career opportunities within our company and industry for years to come,” states Gibson. Two individuals Gibson has hired are Kyle Baldwin and Mackenzie Allen. Prior to connecting with YEP, Baldwin had worked part-time jobs in between high school. He had experience in landscaping and as an airport cargo agent, but nothing specifically related to electrical work. In February 2014, Baldwin contacted Aly Pringle, the YEP coordinator, and was extremely passionate about pursuing a career in the electrical field. As an analytical thinker who enjoys math and science, but also enjoys completing projects and hands-on work, pursuing a career as an electrician seemed like a natural fit. With little experience in construction, Baldwin struggled to find an employer who would hire him. Baldwin states, “Joining YEP has turned out to be one of the best decisions that I have ever made. The program gave me the tools that I needed to get hired on with Custom Electric. Everyone I work with is welcoming and knowledgeable. My foreman, Trevor, has been an instrumental help and is a great mentor. I would like to thank Scott Gibson for giving me this amazing opportunity to work for such a great company with great people.” Mackenzie Allen shares a unique testimony. Prior to YEP, Allen attended university for two years, first studying engineering and then switching to philosophy. While he enjoyed both the arts and sciences, Allen felt that neither were the right fit for him. Feeling at a loss, Allen started exploring the trades. After extensive research, specifically into the electrical trade, Allen had finally found a career that triggered his interest. Allen met with Pringle in April 2014, and within a week was hired by Custom Electric. After several months, he is confident that he has now found his right fit. “Having no previous experience, I was a little nervous about jumping right into the work of an electrician apprentice. Ryan Peterson, the site superintendent, advised me right away that it was no problem for me to ask any questions or voice any concerns. I appreciate the open attitude to a great extent, as I can do exactly that without feeling embar-

As well, I am genuinely able to take pride in my work – being a ‘perfectionist’ myself, I am extremely grateful that I am in an environment where I can fulfill a task to my satisfaction. I am looking forward to everything that I will learn and the work that I will complete as I go through my apprenticeship.” YEP strives to create opportunities and experiences like Baldwin and Allen’s. Their stories are a huge testament to the employers who take the time to mentor and provide youth with equal opportunity. If given the chance, the youth of today can go above and beyond in the workforce, ensuring a stable future for the construction industry.

Craig Swanberg, field personnel coordinator for Southern Alberta, states, “YEP was a great way for Cameron to get his name out to PCL. One thing that stood out for Cameron was that he had the recommendation from YEP, even though he had minimal amounts of work experience related to the carpentry trade. Cameron had a very impressive interview and he is now moving forward in starting his carpentry apprenticeship.” Swanberg also notes, “When a young worker has an organization like YEP standing behind them, it helps us in our prescreening process for hiring. Skilled, hardworking trade workers can be hard to find. YEP helps connect young workers with companies, which turns out to be a great investment for everyone involved.” In addition to the win-win component of the program, Swanberg states, “Using YEP, PCL is able to recruit dedicated young workers who may be otherwise overlooked.” In addition to helping youth find long-term employment, YEP offers eight $500 scholarships per year to previous YEP candidates who have excelled in their placement and are enrolled in an apprenticeship at SAIT. Due to the number of exceptional candidates placed in 2013, YEP presented nine scholarships at the CCA’s Annual General Meeting. The scholarship candidates represented a variety of trades, including plumbing, electrical, and sheet-metal work. Each of these individuals continue to excel in their current roles, with positive feedback from their employers – education is empowerment. Two of these individuals, Miranda Clarke (apprentice plumber) and Hung Cao (apprentice sheetmetal worker), are featured in one of YEP’s promotional videos that can be seen on the CCA’s YouTube channel. YEP prides itself on referring only the best candidates to employers, to ensure that the needs of employers are met while also offering one-of-a-kind opportunities for youth.

FEATURE | Riddell Library and Learning Centre

Left to right: Jacqueline Stone, interior designer, John Souleles, project architect, and Martin Sparrow, principal at DIALOG, have collaborated to create a state-of-the-art facility.

The current library was built in 1972, when Mount Royal College relocated from its 1910 downtown location to Lincoln Park. In the more than 40 years since then, education and the workplace have changed dramatically, both in terms of how universities teach and how students learn due to the availability of electronic information on the Internet. Carol Shepstone, MRU librarian, holds a new perspective on the library of today, “Right now, there are three times as many e-books as print books in the library, hundreds of thousands of electronic journals and maybe 200 print journals.” The information available and necessary for modern learning and teaching is increasing moment by moment, and the old library and its infrastructure cannot support such a huge IT demand. The new MRU Library and Learning Centre will

reflect the next stage in meeting the expectations and needs of learners in a multimedia digital world. Development of the Riddell Library and Learning Centre (RLLC) is based on principles of student-focused design, long-term flexibility and sustainability, diversity and varied learning spaces, support for successful and innovative teaching, and cutting edge information technologies. “The new space can’t be bound by one type of use,” explains Shepstone. “The real challenge, as well as one of the real benefits of this building, will be the diversity of learning spaces. We have to be able to reconfigure everything so that users can engage and relate to each other in different ways.” Representatives from key areas of the university have served on the steering

committee and various advisory committees, all collaborating to achieve a plan that will bring in many important new elements. Martin Sparrow, principal at DIALOG Design, is excited about designing a building not only for today, but also for what the future may bring. “It’s a repurposeable building. As needs change with technology and learning collections, the spaces can easily adapt and move; the building can be added onto laterally. It’s all about active, noisy, collaborative – the way the new generations learn,” he states. The challenge was to create a design offering gathering spaces for a cosmopolitan cross-section of people – from traditional learners to students who are always connected with the digital world at their fingertips. “The bones of the building have to be rock-solid; it has to work well for classrooms, as a library, for media, for the parked cars below,” explains Sparrow. “This is a budget-conscious building. We do not have infinite money; we have to spend every dollar extremely wisely and accomplish a lot.” “It’s not your grandfather’s library,” comments John Souleles, DIALOG’s lead architect on the project. “There will be a lot of glazing, more spaces that allow for collaborative learning and developing technology; not necessarily moveable partitions, but rather the spaces can change and adapt.”

The structure will be a large, stand-alone building on the east side of campus, across from the Arts Building and adjacent to the new Mount Royal Conservatory and Bella Concert Hall, on what has been a parking lot. “We’re in the process of relocating the utilities already in place and then excavation [will take place],” says Rob Edgar, project manager for Stuart Olson, the construction manager on-site. “The location is a bit of a challenge, with no place to stockpile or store excavated material; that will be taken off-site. And we’ll have campus, students, and public traffic to work around. The 85-car underground parkade will be a robust concrete structure, and the building columns are on a nine-metre grid; but otherwise it is a simple steel structure.” RLLC’s four floors, with 172,000 square feet of occupied space, will provide four times the space of the current library, with 1,500 student seats and 34 group rooms. The four floors and glass exterior reflect an underlying concept of openness and innovation. “We looked at a steel structure that gives us lightness, flexibility, and minimizes the amount of structure to contend with inside the building,” Sparrow explains. “It’s organized in a logical, neighbourhood way, with the floors getting progressively quieter upwards.” The main floor is the centre of activity and intellectual exchange with the services desk, computers, group rooms where students can practise presentations using different types of technology. “Some rooms will be more high-tech than others, but they all allow for display of materials so students can access and interact with information visually,” says Shepstone. “For example, in the media suites students will be able to use, create, and edit video and audio, and access music scores to make, play and explore music, either in groups or as individuals.” There will be micro-tile interactive computing walls to display artwork and for public presentation, as well as meeting spaces available to individuals and community groups. The second floor houses the Student Learning Services offices, Student Technicians and Resource Tutors (START), sound-proofed media project rooms, specialized collections, and rooms for study, practice, group work and reading. The Academic Development Centre will be on this level, supporting faculty development and excellence in teaching and learning practices, ensuring positive learning experiences for all students. Things are a bit quieter on the third floor, but no less exciting and innovative. In the 360-degree Data Visualization Studio – the “data cave” – students and researchers will explore and interact with visual data as multiple projectors display the contents of a single computer screen, offering a 360-degree view of everything from human anatomy images to geospatial data and mapping. “The data cave is an immersive experience space that allows for information (images, text, video, data, maps, etc.) to be displayed on all four walls of the room if desired. There is also sound capability,” explains Shepstone. “This would allow stu-

dents and faculty to perhaps experience an historic cityscape, the insides of buildings, perhaps architectural renderings and plans, large-scale mapping and spatial data work – even settings like hospitals, or art performances, etc.” The Department of Education and Schooling will be here with three purpose-built rooms to emulate school classrooms. ESL workshops and collections, the Institute for Scholarship and Learning and some specialized library collections also share this floor. On the fourth level, a mix between modern, flexible spaces with seating along the outside view walls and the traditional reading room surroundings and library stacks will prevail. Environmentally controlled spaces will house and make accessible archives and special collections. The back-of-house functions and library offices will be located here, as well. “It’s going to be a really flexible and efficient space,” Shepstone states. “The amount of infrastructure in terms of Information Technology (IT) and power can’t be understated. We’ve spent a lot of time making sure we have enough.” “We had to design a building that manifests the idea of living in a digital world, taking literal quotes and converting them to binary in a dot pattern evocative of the literal and digital at the same time; this will become a frit pattern to use on the exterior glass,” reflects Sparrow. “Ceramic frit (the fused or partially fused materials used in making glass) is silk-screened onto the glass to create a specific pattern. This will become a sort of binary skin.” As the construction manager, Calgary-based Stuart Olson will now turn years of research and design collaboration into state-of-the-art reality. “It’s going to be a great and unique project, and I’m looking forward to getting going with it and the university,” states Edgar. The new library will be the third MRU building to achieve LEED Gold certification, and will feature bicycle lockers and showers to help ease commuting and put the focus on health and wellness. “The 360-degree glass curtain-wall presents some unique challenges within the LEED process,” Edgar comments. “Solar gain can minimize energy consumption but also makes for a more challenging energy model that can be adjusted, for example, with filming on the glass and the special frit-work of the binary skin. All that glass will be unitized, fabricated in sections, so all we have to do is put it in place.” “The key is that the building has good bones,” says Sparrow. “If the library wants to reconfigure the spaces later, no one has to go into the structure to make it work.” Modern initiatives will be incorporated, such as using the interior stair core to bring light down and gather some of the return air and exhaust it out at the top of the building, like a natural chimney. The building’s glass envelope affords extensive outside views and streams of daylight. When it opens in January 2017, the library will be a beacon of light at night in the centre of campus. “It’s been a long journey since we started this project in 2007,” Sparrow recalls. “This could become the heart of

from the schools was extremely appreciative. “It felt like Christmas ... as staff opened and sorted the tools. The students will use all of the materials provided for the programs offered at our school,” expresses Jackie Chapman-Brown, principal of Crescent Heights High School. The CCA Board agrees it is imperative that the construction tools students are using in their CTS classrooms be up-to-date with current industry standards, to ensure proper use and safety practices are met. Stephan De Loof, fabrication and construction teacher at St. Mary’s High School, states, “Students at St. Mary’s High School will continue to benefit from abundant opportunities to learn, grow, and excel. It is clear that the association understands the importance of encouraging students to see the value in character development that is at the core of career and technology education. The donation is making a difference in the lives of individual students and will help us to provide outstanding CTS programs.” Try-A-Trade is very excited about the work that has been done to promote construction careers for youth and continues to work in partnership with the CBE and CCSD to encourage students to look at construction as a career option with vast potential. One of these initiatives is the Dual Credit Program, run in partnership with the CBE, CCSD, and SAIT. The Dual Credit Program will be offered to students in grades 11 and 12, and will provide them with the opportunity to attend SAIT’s Pre-Employment Carpentry Program, allowing students to complete the technical training required for their first-year apprenticeship while completing their high school diploma. “The dual credit program is of great benefit to the CBE. It allows our teachers to work with industry professionals, students to the bridge the gap between high school and post-secondary, and promotes opportunities in construction. The students will gain some of the necessary skills to be successful in, and beyond, high school,” states

Ryan Emond, learning specialist, Career and Technology Studies with the CBE. Scott MacPherson, dean of the School of Construction at SAIT, informs that, “Alberta continues to lead Canada’s construction industry with expected job-growth virtually every year between now and 2023. This innovative partnership between the two Calgary school boards and the Calgary Construction Association is evidence of a shared goal for the next generation. Collectively we strive to increase exposure to careers in construction and provide pathways for high school students for direct entry into the industry.” The Dual Credit Program will help promote construction careers to high school students and ease the transition of these qualified individuals into the industry. The CCA will assist students enrolled in the program by helping them find employment upon completion to ensure the overall success of the program. The Dual Credit Program is scheduled to be launched in 2015. In addition, the CCA’s Try-A-Trade Committee is creating an informative yet fun video highlighting a variety of different construction trades. The video will be used as an interactive presentation tool for students to help inform them of the viable career options the construction industry has to offer. Students will have an opportunity to explore trades such as welding, carpentry, and electrical work by hearing firsthand from tradesmen/women who use these skill-sets daily. Not only will students learn about the trades themselves, but the video interviews will also discuss life outside of work, earning potentials, and the future outlook of the construction industry. This video will give students an overall picture of life working in construction. The CCA would like to sincerely thank each of its members for their support in education and career initiatives and would also like to give a special thank you to Calgary Fasteners and Tools, the main supplier of the equipment and materials donated. n

Kissing the Sky

Brookfield Place Calgary begins its climb to become the tallest building in Western Canada By Deb Smith

The construction of Brookfield Place Calgary, destined to be the tallest building in Western Canada once its dramatic crown of glass is set in place, is proving the sky is not the limit as it begins rising from the ground. Phase 1 features an 810-foot tower on the east side of the city block, between First and Second streets and Sixth and Seventh avenues SW, that will bring 1.4 million square feet of office space to the vibrant business community. As well, the current project includes a 63-foothigh, three-storey glass pavilion entitled The Winter Garden Pavilion, which will bridge Tower East with a future 43-storey tower to the west in Phase 2.

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

Brookfield Office Properties, the developer and owner of the project, was incorporated as the Canadian Arena Company in the early 1920s with its Canadian roots in the hockey world of Montreal. Expanding from its role as the operator of the Montreal arena, the company partnered with another to build the Arena Gardens in Toronto and later, the Montreal Forum. It wasn’t long before those successful enterprises fuelled the company’s expansion into commercial real estate in the 1970s, eventually becoming Brookfield Office Properties Inc., a global com-

mercial property company that owns, manages, and develops office properties in downtown city cores across the U.S., Australia, and Canada. With more than 100 premier office properties totalling more than 75 million square feet, Brookfield is one of the world’s largest public, commercial real-estate companies. And now they are bringing their next signature project to the city of Calgary, along with commitment to a new approach to office development, bridging the gap between work and lifestyle and community as represented by the overall design philosophy. Canadian-based DIALOG Design is the architectural firm chosen by Brookfield in partnership with Fender Katsalidis

Arnney Architecture and Interiors (FKA). With studios around the world, FKA is renowned for its attention to bringing together work and leisure environments, working across three sectors – workplace, lifestyle, and cultural. Brookfield Office Properties, with its roots in the entertainment and leisure world of ice hockey, wanted a design that would be more than just an office building; they wanted a structure that would reach out to involve the community in work, play, and the arts. The Winter Garden Pavilion at the base of the two office towers will fulfill this vision with its glass envelope and rounded corners and edges, which beckon the public to experience music, dance, theatre, film, and the visual arts through the James K. Gray Gallery housed inside. The unique space is named after one of Alberta’s esteemed oil and gas explorers.

Gray was an exploration geologist for more than 50 years, co-founding Canadian Hunter in 1973, appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1995, and inducted into the Calgary Business Hall of Fame in 2004. His inspiring entrepreneurial spirit will be echoed in the striking glass tower that will soar above the city streets. The Phase 1 East Tower will rise from the ground with floor-to-floor curtainwalls of continuous glass, with rounded corners consisting of conical pieces of glass specially manufactured in Mexico and shipped to Calgary. The tower will be capped with a striking crown of glass in order to house mechanical equipment high above the city. Once complete, Tower East will feature six levels below-grade, the ground floor and mezzanine, 56 office floors, and two levels for mechanical on the top. Thirty-eight elevators will provide access to each area. This innovative and bold design will be built to LEED Gold standards for

Core and Shell Development, and will provide direct access to the plus-15 skywalk and the Seventh Avenue SW Calgary LRT. In consideration of environmental sustainability, there will be parking space for 500 bicycles with dedicated entrance ramps and a bike-maintenance area, along with 50 showers and lockers, as well as an electric-car plug-in recharge station. These features help to meet LEED environmental standards, reflecting a new generation of office towers designed to contribute in positive ways to the lifestyles of tenants and the community at large. As construction manager, EllisDon Construction Services Inc. of Calgary will make it all happen. Coming from modest contractor roots in southern Ontario in 1956, EllisDon was the first contractor in Canada to own a tower crane, allowing them to reach heights other companies couldn’t. Today the company is renowned for its

Brookfield Place Calgary’s first 810-foot tower, which features floor-to-floor curtain-walls of continuous glass and will be capped with a striking crown of glass, will kiss the city’s sky, making it the tallest building in Western Canada.

commitment to its people and leadership within the construction industry, and their work on the new Brookfield Place Calgary is proving, once again, that they’re at the peak of performance. On October 30, 2013, crews broke ground and kept digging until the hole was deep enough to accommodate six underground parking levels. Last year, the EllisDon team had to deal with debris and artifacts from more than a century of commercial buildings that had existed on the site, including the historic Empress Hotel, built in 1911. Once that was all cleared away, they continued downward. “At the very bottom of the excavation, about 80 feet down, we found some fossils,” remarks Joe Bechberger, senior project manager with EllisDon. “Maybe from an old river bed or lake bottom.” Then the concrete work began, and by August 2014, they were pouring P4, anticipating ground level by the end of October 2014 – one year after that initial shovelful of dirt. Bechberger has calculated a total concrete volume of +/60,000 cubed metres with reinforcing steel (rebar) weighing in at +/- 11,000 metric tonnes. “We’re focused on the critical part of the structure – [to] get the tower in place and deal with the peripheral later,” explains Scott Thompson, project director for EllisDon. That tower consists of a reinforced concrete core with structural-steel floor framing and exterior columns. “The main columns are coming up out of the hole,” adds Bechberger. “The big steel sits on them, so some of them will be +/- 30 metric tonnes each. Four will sit on the huge steel transfer beams coming from Germany to help receive loads from the upper columns.” The logistics and timing for such a job are both critical and complicated. “We’ll be doing it on the one-week cycle. One pour per week, the steel next, the trades coming up behind. We all work together, with everyone getting one week per floor,” explains Thompson. Bechberger adds, “We have a good team here with all the experience and depth of knowledge that you don’t al-

ways get on every job. Right now we have about [a] 160 [person] crew on the jobsite, and it can go up to 250 at times. When we get into the cycle, coming out of the ground with machines running, we can’t have too many on the site.” It makes for complicated scheduling with a congested jobsite, planning for the arrival of materials at just the right time to keep that one-week rotation on track, the tower steadily growing upwards. Herb Mah, VP of Development with Brookfield Office Properties, comments, “It’s all going according to plan and we’re moving right along.” Brookfield expects the anchor tenant, North American oil company Cenovus Energy, will be able to occupy its one million square feet of the East Tower by the latter half of 2017. “Calgary has so much growth,” says Mah. “We intend to go forward with Phase 2, a 43-storey tower and the final completion of the pavilion as soon as we achieve a certain amount of preleasing commitment.” The hard work on the ground is underway, and with the collective experience and know-how of the Calgary construction industry, soon Brookfield Place Calgary will soar above a city that has never believed the sky is the limit. n

Calgary’s 45th LRT station opens in Tuscany By Colleen Biondi

It is estimated that there are 5,000 residents within a 10-minute walk of the new $123-million Tuscany Station, which will offer 9,000 rides each weekday and reduce travel time to the downtown to 28 minutes.

Calgary’s Light Rail Transit (LRT) system opened its first station way back in 1981. This summer, Tuscany Station, the city’s 45th, opened to much fanfare. “It is the icing on the cake, giving us full extension on the existing lines,” explains Doug Morgan, director of Calgary Transit. Approximately 2,000 residents from nearby communities came to celebrate the grand opening of the LRT station on Saturday, August 23, 2014. There was a climbing wall and slides for children, plenty of coffee stalls and food trucks to sustain attendees, music by the Dixie Knights, Calgary Police Service and Calgary Fire Department presence, tents to provide shade and comfort, and speeches and well-wishing from dignitaries. Mayor Nenshi rolled in from holidays to play conductor, driving the first train – adorned with a bright red bow – into the station. Tuscany Station is located 2.5 kilometres west of the Crowfoot Station. It will serve up to 40,000 residents of Rocky

Ridge, Royal Oak and, of course, Tuscany (it is estimated that there are 5,000 residents within a 10-minute walk of the station). The station will provide up to 9,000 rides each weekday and reduce travel time to the downtown to 28 minutes. The cost for the project was close to $123 million; 90 per cent of the bill was paid for by the provincial government under its Municipal Sustainability Initiative (the remaining cost was picked up by the City and the federal government). This station was completed early (construction crews broke ground in 2009 and finished up just before opening day) and under budget, a point of pride for those involved. The two-storey station is accessed via two pedestrian bridges – one to the north and one to the south, says Robin Mercier, program manager for the City of Calgary. There is one broad set of stairs and two elevators; an escalator was nixed due to high capital costs, anticipated maintenance costs, and the

team’s commitment to reduce energy consumption. The large, glass curtainwalls and wood-slat ceilings contribute to an open, yet grounded, feeling in the station. The structure has straight, angular lines. A mountain view to the west so inspired the architectural company, DIALOG, that they designed patterning on the retaining walls to replicate the view. Sustainability is an important component of the station’s design and build. In-slab heating is powered by high-efficiency boilers and does not require ducts for forced-air heat. Glazing in the building provides excellent insulation, high visibility to assist with crime prevention and, of course, a bright environment while indoors. The two Park-and-Ride lots adopted low-impact, urban-design principles and offer 573 spaces. For example, there are breaks in the curbs that filter silt and salt from runoff before the water makes its way to the storm system. Wind power continues to drive all cars on the LRT system;

in 2012, CO2 emissions were reduced by over 56,000 tonnes. A significant consultation process helped inform the team during design development. A community committee was formed back when the station was a mere idea in 2007, and has been critical in giving input on everything from the pre-design stage and opening-day activities to what the utility complex should look like and components of the security systems. There were five openhouses with over 1,000 attendees and lots of opportunity for giving suggestions online or via old-fashioned paper forms. Critical feedback included a safety feature – putting a texturized finish at the beginning and end of railings to cue people as to where the station stairs start and stop. Every major construction project has its challenges and Tuscany Station was no exception. The land used for key segments of the build was not owned by the City so it had to be acquired. The LRT bridges cross Stoney Trail, which is government-owned property; therefore, various permits and ministerial con-

Called ‘roger that,’ the public art display will be a playful and colourful addition to the site and will be ready by summer 2015. Mercier, who also happens to be a resident of Tuscany, took the train to work on its first day of formal operation – August 25, 2014. He was impressed to see the system functioning so well as a whole and credits the entire project team for pulling off such a massive job. “It was pretty cool to ride the rails from my own community,” he says. “It was nice and smooth and great to watch the signals work.” Tuscany Station is a critical segment of a comprehensive transportation plan for Calgary. Next up for Calgary Transit is to upgrade existing stations, particularly on the northeast lines; to expand existing stations to accommodate new, environmentally-friendly, spacious and streamlined four-car trains, 60 of which are on order and will start being integrated into the system by Christmas 2015; and to plan for expansion of the LRT system. The latter goal will involve something called a “Green Line” in areas like southeast Calgary. This is a cost-effective rapid-transit bus system where the infrastructure can be easily converted to trains when that becomes a viable option (viability is measured by a significant number of residents in the area and funding availability). Here you will see smaller, low-floor stations with curbs of only six to eight inches. This will provide easier and safer access, like old-fashioned streetcars. “Bus rapid-transit (BRT) construction is new to us,” adds Morgan. “We are excited to develop a new project that can be used here.” Additional developments like electronic-fare equipment, real-time predictions and a new Calgary Transit website are all in the works. Planning for the future is anchored in what is best for Calgarians. “There will continue to be great transportation choices for the community,” he says. “It is all about driving mobility and getting our residents to places around the city.” n

REPORT | ACA

Report from the Alberta Construction Association Scott Matheson, Chairman The ACA’s current focus is helping industry and owners respond to the challenges of a growing market and skills shortages. Demand for construction Alberta’s major projects inventory is tracking $217 billion of investment as of September 2014. Driven by in-migration of nearly 100,000 people per year, building permit values increased by 14 per cent over the previous year as of the second quarter 2014. ACA industry roundtables anticipate that 2015 will continue to be very busy. Recent reports suggest that Alberta is generating a substantial percentage of the new jobs across Canada. Industry expects cost escalation to be on the order of five per cent in 2014 and 2015, perhaps more for selected trades, depending on demand versus capacity. Skills shortages limit industry capacity Alberta’s resource-driven economy has downturns in which skilled personnel exit the industry and industry then has to scramble for staff in the subsequent upswings. Skill shortages in the design community contribute to incomplete project specifications and drawings, which create uncertainty and can dramatically impact final scope. Retirements of baby boomers has also led to shortages of knowledgeable procurers of construction. This in turn leads to

construction services. ACA’s efforts to promote government adoption of CCDC contracts with minimal supplementary general conditions continues. Development of materials to educate procurers of construction services would benefit from the approach pioneered by the Calgary Construction Association and the development of the Construction 101 course. The ACA has now forged a new high-level committee of industry and government. Featuring the chief elected and chief staff officers of the architects, engineers, the ACA, and the three assistant deputy ministers of Infrastructure, the Industry Liaison Committee brings the highest level of decisionmakers to the table. This group provides an opportunity for frank discussion of the lessons learned from the use of various methods of procurement and delivery, including P3s. The ACA has created ACCERT, a not-for-profit Part 9 company owned by the ACA, CEA, CAA, and road builders. ACCERT has been created as a vehicle to complement publicsector procurement and project management by industry using industry best-practices. The government has expressed interest in using ACCERT for flood recovery and potentially, even the schools projects. The ACA has facilitated productivity enhancement by the adoption of industry standard practices and documents and by more collaborative approaches, such as Integrated Project Delivery. We are helping our provincial BIM group, aceBIM, to become more involved with national BIM efforts, with the

Institute for BIM in Canada presenting at the Alberta aceBIM/CanBIM Conference September 30 to October 2, 2014. The ACA also facilitates the development and recruitment of skilled construction workers through the following: • Partnering with school boards to enhance trades in the curriculum, work experience, and dual-credit programs. The ACA applauds the leadership of the Calgary Construction Association in developing the carpentry dualcredit pilot with the Calgary school boards and SAIT. This partnership could be a model used throughout the country. • One recent initiative under development with Merit is resurrecting Learning About Trades and Technology Education (LATTE), a job-shadowing program for teachers and guidance counsellors to familiarize themselves with the trades. This program flourished in Calgary some years ago, and would be an excellent complement to the dual-credit pilot. • Partnering with apprenticeship to adjust industry training in order to improve attraction and retention, rather than mandating apprentice use. • Developing strategic immigration partnerships with countries where skills are transferable. The ACA appreciates the close collaboration with the Calgary Construction Association across many of these initiatives. n

Doing it a Better Way

COOLNet Alberta increasing industry productivity By Dave Robertson, Infinite Source Lots of attention continues to go into increasing productivity in the construction industry. It has always been so and new technologies abound on the jobsite. For many contractors the same cannot be said for their office environment. COOLNet Alberta is making big changes to help with that through the introduction of invitation-only project access and online bid-submission technology. Two of the iconic images associated with construction are a roll of drawings and a hardhat. They represent the knowledge and information it takes to construct something and the skills it takes to make the plan a reality. The hardhat is still a reality, but the physical roll of drawings is quickly becoming a thing of the past. When COOLNet first started to put project information and documents online in the late 1990s, there was great scepticism about the ability to access and work with project information and documents using the Internet. Today, it is the industry standard. Marc Andreessen, best known as co-author of Mosaic, the first widely used web browser; cofounder of Netscape Communications; and cofounder and general

creating great efficiencies in the office and on the jobsite; just click a button and you can instantly view or download the information or documents you need. The problem with the current state of affairs, however, is the explosion in the number of tools and technology being used. Estimators and project managers are faced with learning and using many different solutions that all do similar things. COOLNet is now leading the way towards providing the industry with a solution to this challenge with the introduction of COOLNet on demand. General contractor members of the Calgary Construction Association now have access to the comprehensive COOLNet on demand service included in their membership. It gives them the ability to create and control their own projects in COOLNet. Access to these projects is by invitation only, so COOLNet can now be used by a general contractor as their own private site to control the documents and information for all of their projects

in one place. The advantage to this approach for trade contractors and suppliers is that they have a much more efficient way to access and work with both publicly tendered projects and those that are available by invitation only. The COOLNet on demand tools include: bid-document control, invitation to bid, project communications, shopdrawing management, bid submission, and other key workflows that streamline the work of estimators and project managers. The technology platform selected by COOLNet to deliver these services to the industry is the leading Canadian solution of its type. Every construction association from the Quebec border west is either using it or is in the process of implementing it before the end of 2014. Some Maritime provinces are also in the process of implementation. The technology is emerging as the industry standard and has now been used on thousands of projects across the country. The same bid-submission technology available in the COOLNet platform is

growing in popularity with many owners. In British Columbia, thousands of construction bids have been successfully submitted online on projects for municipalities, health authorities, school districts and other public agencies. It is being used in the industrial sector on a major oil and gas project. Ten public agencies in Ontario have committed to implementing this new technology by the end of the year. Just as the movement of plans and specifications has changed for the better, the traditional process of physically submitting tenders in an envelope is moving online. It might not be as much fun as being in a room with all your competitors anxiously awaiting the opening but it is clearly more efficient and eliminates much of the risk in the actual bidsubmission process. The construction industry continues to evolve and COOLNet Alberta is helping to lead the way towards higher efficiency and greater productivity. n

Hitting a High Note

Mount Royal University Conservatory and Bella Concert Hall construction nears completion

By Melanie Franner The new Conservatory and Bella Concert Hall will include rehearsal studios, master-class classrooms, a percussion room, a student lounge, a board room, a multi-level lobby, and at the heart, a 773-seat “intimate” venue.

The new Mount Royal University Conservatory and Bella Concert Hall is more than just a vision of performing arts excellence; it is now a solid, fully enclosed structure that prominently rises from the ground for all to see. And as it awaits the next stage of its completion, it prepares for its rightfully earned place among the great musical facilities of this era. “Last fall, there was this massive concrete structure coming out of the ground,” states Paul Dornian, director, Mount Royal University Conservatory. “Today, the crane is gone and the building is fully enclosed. It’s been quite a transformation. There are some teaching studios and classrooms where the millwork is starting to be installed. It’s a very exciting time right now. It’s gone from being a shell to the point where one can really begin to understand the building and feel what a truly magnificent place it is going to be.” A medley of partners The new Conservatory and Bella Concert Hall has been years in the making

but the project really got off the ground in 2011 when Pfeiffer Partner Architects Inc. and Sahuri & Partners Architecture Inc. began work on the concept. The facility itself, which will be LEED Gold certified, will be a little more than 8,700 gross metres in size and will include rehearsal studios, master-class classrooms, a percussion room, a student lounge, a board room, and a multilevel lobby. At the heart of the facility will be the Bella Concert Hall, a 773-seat “intimate” venue where the audience will feel one with the stage during all different types of performances, including choirs, chamber music, ensembles, and orchestras. Critical to the overall success of the new facility is the acoustics, not only for the concert hall itself but also for the different rehearsal and teaching rooms that will be used to mentor the next generation of world-class musicians. And it is this overriding reverence to the acoustics that has driven much of the construction to date.

“It’s a very, very complicated project,” explains Danuta Darling, project engineer, CANA Construction. “It’s a concert hall and conservatory so the predominant feature of this building – and what everyone is most concerned about – is the acoustics. Because of this, the building requires different construction methods.” But even here, it’s complicated. “It’s not just a concert hall,” continues Darling. “It’s a number of practice studios and classrooms. Each of these rooms needs to be completely isolated from the neighbouring rooms and from the corridors and hallways. Each of the slabs in the rooms has to be isolated from the structural slab that it sits on, so that there is no bridging of sound into the neighbouring spaces or noise vibration. This was achieved by installing rolling-out isolation flooring between slabs. In some cases, the walls are comprised of between six to 10 layers of drywall. The room’s perimeters have to be completely separated, insulated with polyethylene perimeter isolation boards, caulked with

Critical to the overall success of the new facility is the acoustics, which was achieved by installing rolling-out isolation flooring between slabs and in some cases, six to 10 layers of drywall.

acoustic caulking, and then sealed before pouring the toppings.” So important is this emphasis on acoustics that a special meeting was held for all the subtrades before their work even began. The project architects and acoustician were on hand for the event. “We had the consultants and trades here for a presentation in July 2013,” states Kay Harrison, project manager, Mount Royal University. “We were still doing the basic concrete then but we wanted to walk the trades through the details of a ‘box-in-box’ construction so that they could get a better understanding of why we were doing things the way we were.” Harrison describes the trades’ reaction to the presentation as one of being “jawdropping” but one that would prove advantageous in the long run. “Even the mechanical/duct work was different in that it was oversized in order to reduce the ambient noise,” she says. “Also all the mechanical and electrical equipment and some of the main piping runs had to have vibration isolation installed and there were very stringent noise criteria for the main roof top Air Handling Units.” In addition to the extra time needed to build these specialized, sound-isolated spaces, Darling suggests a room usually boarded in one day could take up to a week using these construction methods; there was also the need for stringent quality control and ongoing inspection. “People soon learned that if they didn’t do it absolutely right the first time, that they would have to tear it out and redo it,” adds Darling. “With this level of acoustical engineering, you can’t have

even one weak link. There can’t be the odd stone left under the slab or the discarded coffee cup left behind the drywall. The tiniest thing has the ability to derail everything.” Another interesting detail that Darling shares about the project was the use of mountain climbers to install some of that specialized duct work needed to reduce the ambient noise. The sheet metal subcontractor on the project, Marlborough Sheet Metal & Design (MSM), hired a team from Calgarybased Quantum Rope Access to install the return air duct in the concert hall, says Darling, adding that the workers were also mountain climbers. “The duct is located at the very top of the Concert Hall at an elevation of about 24 metres and is suspended using acoustic isolation hangers from the steel-roof trusses,” she continues. “The tower crane was used to lift the individual duct segments from the floor of the concert hall and the rope climbers then maneuvered the pieces into position and tightened connections. The duct is about 1,500 millimetres in diameter so its size and weight made us elect to install it while the crane could be used for hoisting. At that time, however, there was no scaffolding set up below for the installers to work from. As a result, the rope climbers worked in the air to put the duct segments together.” The composition With the exterior of the conservatory and Bella Concert Hall nearing completion, work inside is beginning to ramp up. “We’ve now got the scaffolding up at various levels in the concert hall for the

installation of the ceiling theatricals and acoustic wood-canopy supports,” states Harrison. “The co-ordination work required for the structural steel and secondary steel supports for the acoustical wood panels and acoustic banners is immense. There are so many complexities to it.” Glenmore Fabricators Ltd. is the company that won that bid. “The building requires over 1,000 tonnes of structural steel,” explains Ryan Bakay, contract manager and project engineer. “We started work on the site last October. It’s a very challenging job in that it requires very good co-ordination between the general contractor, all of the trades and the consultants. It’s not a job that is easy to grasp visually, like a regular square box structure would be. You need to utilize modern tools like 3D modelling and CNC fabrication in order to ensure that you have it exactly right. The margin of error on this can be as low as one millimetre in places.” According to Bakay, the company has an average crew size of 25 workers on site at any given time.

“We went into the project knowing that it was going to be challenging,” he adds. “In the end, we were prepared for it. Most of the support structure for the wood panels is now up. I think we did a good job in a very complex environment.” The company behind the fabrication of these acoustic panels is Heavy Industries Inc. The rose canopy reflectors, which were inspired by an Alberta Rose, are probably the most iconic feature of the concert hall, and weigh approximately 35,325 pounds, including panels and frames. These concrete-filled cherry-veneered panels are suspended above the stage and several rows of seating from a steel catwalk that will be accessible by technicians and will house theatrical lighting, as well as subwoofers and speaker arrays that are worth half a million dollars on their own. The rose panels are designed with three separate hatches – one in the centre and two on each side – that will open and close, allowing the speaker

arrays to deploy or retract depending on whether they are required for a given show. “The large wooden-veneer panels and balcony fascias are designed to reflect sound and to also act as a visual feature,” explains Kevin Mullins, project manager. “The ceiling panels are all different shapes. The largest one resembles a rose and the smaller ones are like petals. There are also large leaf-shaped panels behind the orchestra. Together, they cover most of the ceiling area in the concert hall.” The panels will be adjusted to different heights and positions to better reflect the sound of the performance. Although each is finished in wood veneer, each also contains glass fibre-reinforced concrete. Each panel is made up of multiple pieces, is five inches thick and is restricted to a weight of no more than 15 pounds per square foot. “The pieces themselves fit together like a giant jigsaw puzzle, onto a custom steel frame,” notes Mullins. “The project’s acoustician is very much involved in this

part of the project. We’re going on to well over a year of design preparation.” Installation of the panels will take place from August 2014 through to December 2014. “It’s a very large custom project for us,” states Mullins. “We’ve worked on projects in the past of equal complexity but not quite on this scale.” The crescendo With all components of the construction team – designers, consultants, engineers, contractors, and trades alike – working together to bring this truly magnificent facility to life, the grand finale is well within sight. “We’re still on track for the building to be ‘substantially completed’ by early 2015,” states Dornian. “We are anticipating holding an open house ‘hard hat’ event in January. There won’t be any seats yet but the building will be substantially completed by then. We won’t actually be moving into the building until June 2015 and operations will officially begin in July.”

In addition to the $20-million contribution from both the federal and provincial governments and the $10-million contribution from the City of Calgary, there have been generous donations from a number of corporations and individuals. In fact, the Taylor family donated $21 million toward the project – the largest private donation in the history of Mount Royal University. The Bella Concert Hall will be named in honour of Mary Belle Taylor (1891-1972), matriarch of the city’s well-distinguished and philanthropic Taylor family. Although the Mount Royal University Conservatory and Bella Concert Hall is still accepting donations from the private and public sectors, the building’s construction schedule is well on its way to bringing the symphony of activity to a resounding and climatic end in only a few months’ time. “The celebrations will start in midSeptember 2015 and will run through the first week of October,” says Dornian. “They will involve a number of performances, which will, in large part, be

co-productions with some of the major organizations here in Calgary. The first performance will be an opera gala partnering with the Calgary Opera Company and Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. It will feature four soloists in a newly commissioned piece.” Other just-as impressive performances will follow, including a solo pianist recital from home-grown, world-class pianist Yuja Wang, a Chamber Music Concert featuring a number of distinguished Conservatory alumni, and a Choral Concert featuring four or five leading choirs from the community (and 200 to 300 singers). Work is also underway to hold a popular music concert yet to be defined. “I want to showcase the range of what will sound wonderful in this hall,” concludes Dornian. “What I think is the really defining feature of the Bella Concert Hall is that is it is a mid-sized hall designed to accommodate a full-sized orchestra in a way that will deliver great acoustics. Everyone will feel closely connected to each other and to the performance on the stage.” n

Fanning the Flames

Calgary’s hot condo market set to become hotter By Melanie Franner

Created as two spires of glass and steel atop a street-facing podium, The Guardian’s twin 44-storey towers, which will make them the tallest residential towers in Calgary, are a bold statement of modern architecture and will instantly define the project against the city’s ever-changing skyline.

Calgary’s cityscape continues to evolve as more condominium developments reach out and up to capture a very hot market being fuelled by a low supply and steady demand. And by the look of things, the situation is not going to change any time soon. According to the latest Metropolitan Outlook report from the Conference Board of Canada, Calgary’s economy

will be among a select group of four (along with Regina, Saskatoon, and Edmonton) out of a total of 28 Canadian metropolitan areas to grow the fastest in 2014. The city’s condo market appears to be – and has been – operating at this hectic pace for some time already. A Q1-2014 Market Update Report from Atlus Group suggests that if the pace of condomini-

um sales experienced in the first quarter of 2014 were to continue for the entire year, the current 2,200 condominium units on the market would be gone in the first-half of the year. This means that there are fewer units available but no drop in demand. “The available inventory of new condominium product fell by 8.2 per cent over the first quarter of 2014,” states Matthew Boukall, director, Residential Advisory Services, Atlus Group. “The key thing that has changed since last year is supply. Basically, the units are selling faster than developers have been able to add new inventory.” Although there are a number of condo units available in the Centre Sector (in fact, this area is home to one-third of all the available units), the strong demand has pushed prices much higher, which is starting to push said condos out of the reach of many Calgarians. “Pricing levels continue to escalate in the first quarter of 2014 as inventory levels decline and demand remains strong,” continues Boukall, who adds that some of the largest price increases have occurred in the city centre. “Inner-city, wood-frame low-rise product at some projects is now averaging more than $500 per square foot, while new highrise concrete developments are entering the market at $600 per square foot.” The fastest-selling units are those priced at under $350,000, which is essentially a one-bedroom 600-squarefoot unit, but demand has also been strong for some of the mature buyers downsizing from single-family homes into larger units in and around the downtown region. Either way, there are more developments slated to appear on the city’s evergrowing horizon. The City of Calgary’s Building Department reports that it has received more condominium development building

And the actual numbers of residential units in the proposed developments also rose from 1,486 to 1,913. A changing landscape One company already familiar with the Calgary Building Department is Harvard Developments Inc. The firm is pro-

posing to transform the existing downtown Eau Claire Market site into a more vibrant, mixed-use area that includes hotel, apartment, residential, office building, and retail space. Although not yet approved by the City of Calgary, the proposed development would include approximately 1,000 residential units (which includes a combination of condominiums, apartment rentals, and a hotel). The company hopes to begin the project in early- to

mid-2015 and anticipates it will be completed in three phases over eight to 10 years. Concord Pacific Inc. is another developer in the midst of getting its project off the ground, this one to be located in the northwest corner downtown on Eau Claire Park. The company plans on constructing two condominium towers on the site; the first a 14-storey tower with 105 units and the second, a 17-storey tower with 113 units. The CONSTRUCTOR 2015

The proposed Eau Claire Market site will include 1,000 residential units, a much-needed number in order to capture a very hot market being fuelled by low supply and steady demand.

A reincarnation of the “Signature” single-tower proposal, the new buildings will be designed to raise the bar when it comes to the meaning of luxurious. The

grand suites will range from 1,060 to 6,100 square feet (penthouse) and will feature high-end finishes, state-of-the-art appliances, and private elevator access.

Although the company is still in a soft launch (the hard launch is expected to occur later this year), the reaction has been good. Construction on the first tower will commence in spring 2015, with planned completion for fall 2017. The second tower will be constructed shortly thereafter. Already sold-out at this point is Qualex-Landmark’s Mark on 10th, a 35-storey, 274-unit, mixed-use development on the corner of Eighth Street and 10th Avenue SW. Sales began in February 2013 and the company was sold-out in April 2014, just a short 15 months after launch. Anticipated occupancy date is early 2016. Average selling price for the oneand two-bedroom units, ranging from 452 to 980 square feet, was $380,000. As one of the country’s fastest-growing cities, Calgary is primed to see more towers rise from the ground in the coming years. More condos will mean more choice – at all levels of the spectrum. One thing that won’t change is the demand for innovative designs that can provide much-needed housing while breathing new excitement into an existing community or dramatically revitalizing an area to make everything old new again. n

Breaking Barriers, Building Bonds

The Calgary Construction Association’s Women in Construction Committee educates and enables women looking to enter into and advance in the industry By Aly Pringle With women making up only 11 per cent of the Canadian construction industry workforce, and a startling four per cent of the trades, the Calgary Construction Association’s Women in Construction (WIC) Committee has been striving to create awareness of the vast career opportunities available for women in the industry. Inspiring leadership is one of WIC’s top priorities in reaching out to womArlene Dickinson impressed the crowd of over 400 with her inspirational story and motivational sentiments.

en to promote and raise awareness of women working in the construction industry. The WIC committee, spearheaded in 2012 by first CCA female chair Serena Holbrook of Pockar Masonry, has been exploring creative ways on how to connect to the large pool of women within Canada who are currently underemployed or unemployed. Since 2012, WIC has participated in the CCA’s annual Construction Career Expo, hosted two luncheons, and has also hosted a seminar on “Women in Leadership” at Calgary’s BUILDEX Conference. New in 2014, the committee decided to try something different and present one of Canada’s most influential women to share her story and provide helpful tips on how to survive in a “man’s world”. Arlene Dickinson, who is well-known for her role on CTV’s Dragon’s Den, inspired both men and women to consider new perspectives on June 17, 2014. This Canadian icon drew a crowd of over 450 women and men to the Stampede’s BMO Centre. The room was lit up by a sea of purple and white. One of the CCA’s most distinguished events, the evening began with a networking cocktail hour, followed by dinner, and a flow of conversation. The moment Dickinson entered onto the stage, the room fell silent; the audience was captivated by the personal memoirs Dickinson shared. Dickinson spoke of the hardships she endured as a child and young woman, experiencing a modest upbringing to a garnered success. She touched on how

life is full of adversity and is rarely simple. Most people are not born into a life of instant reward; Dickinson had to work extremely hard to get to where she is today, and the road to achieving that success was no easy task. “If you want something in life, you have to be prepared to work for it and to not let your emotions get in the way,” she expressed. By contributing a strong voice while also learning how to listen to and respect others, she climbed the corporate ladder. Dickinson’s presentation was extremely moving and was relevant to everyone in the room. Commending all women currently working in the construction field, she empowered others to pursue it and encouraged the men to welcome women into their workforce. Specifically for several younger attendees, Dickinson’s words had a profound impact. The event offered the opportunity for registrants to sponsor seats for young females who are currently enrolled in construction programs at their schools. Heather, a Grade 11 student enrolled as a welder in the Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP), states, “Arlene was and is truly an inspiration – she is a poster [example] for strong and efficient leaders. Arlene taught me that I am capable of anything if I don’t stand in my own way. Though I may not have been blocking my own way, this opportunity lit up the path.” Meg, enrolled as an electrician in RAP, states, “As a girl going into the trades, it is good to know that many people support women in construction.

I was able to meet two other ladies who were electricians at my table and they gave me great advice and insight into the career opportunities awaiting me in the construction industry.” WIC works to encourage other young women, like Heather and Meg, to pursue a career in construction. Another key component for WIC is hosting networking events for women already in the industry, providing an op-

portunity for women to connect and share experiences. WIC hosted its second annual Women in Construction Golf Tournament on September 23, 2014. The “work safe… play safe” tournament, in support of Women in Need, welcomed over 115 women, each wearing bright orange in recognition of the importance of safety. The golfers played a nine-hole best-ball game followed by dinner and presentations. The day was a huge success, with the tournament proceeds

The CCA welcomed over 100 attendees to the second annual Women in Construction Golf Tournament, which took place at the Silverwing Links Golf Course. Participants were encouraged to dress in orange to recognize and promote the importance of construction safety.

Women in Need also embarked on an employment program, giving work opportunities to those new to Canada, those re-entering the workforce, and those unable to find work elsewhere. Prior to the golf tournament, WIC was approached by Women in Need, seeking assistance as to how they could

help women in finding discounted personal protection equipment (PPE) items. WIC took up this opportunity to help and themed the golf tournament around construction-site safety, with proceeds from the tournament going towards helping these women purchase steel-toed boots, along with other PPE items. Going forward, WIC would like to increase their focus on education and mentorship training for women in construction. Moving in that direction, WIC is proud to be running its second seminar at BUILDEX Calgary on November 5, 2014. With the topic “Inspired Leadership,” the seminar will feature industry leaders who are also members of the WIC committee – Stephanie Roll (Executive Millwork and 2014 CCA senior vice-chair), Kim Connell (CANA Construction and CCA director), Jo-Anne Teed (Universal Flooring Systems), Julie Pithers (DIRTT), and facilitator Jill Drader (Women in Work Boots and Steel Toe Stiletto Ltd.). The ladies will discuss qualities that are fundamental in developing leadership strategies, fostering team-building, and creating a positive culture within organizations. WIC looks forward to encouraging more women to enter the construction industry and to creating an environment of support, mentorship, and continuous learning throughout the journeys women make in pursuing a satisfying and lifelong career. n

FEATURE | OAEC Workshop

Achieving Shared Goals through Collaboration By Debra Shelton How many times have we been at construction industry conferences, seminars, and meetings in which it is not only a one-way dialogue, but typically only one of the industry partners is represented in the audience? Unfortunately, this happens 99 per cent of the time. “The Calgary Construction Association (CCA) recognized that the only way to resolve the issues facing the construction industry is to discuss them in small roundtable groups representing all partners in the industry,” says Dave Smith, president of the CCA. Therefore, in February 2013, under the visionary leadership of the Calgary Construction Association Board of Directors, the CCA embarked on a formal process to work towards better collaboration and communication in the construction industry by launching the first Owners, Architects, Engineers, and Contractors (OAEC) Workshop.

The OAEC featured a live debate on the hot issues of the day, including design/bid/builds’ conduciveness to collaboration.

This workshop is structured to bring all industry partners together in a collaborative environment to interactively discuss practical everyday topics of common interest. Often, each party does not understand the world the other person lives in, why things are done in a certain manner, and the impact of those decisions on others. Open dialogue encourages the industry to collectively find best practices for common issues. Roundtable breakout sessions on “how to” topics are comprised of small groups of eight to 20 people of mixed disciplines to allow everyone to hear others’ perspectives. Serena Holbrook, co-owner of Pockar Masonry and 2012 CCA chair, participated on the steering committee of the first workshop. Afterward, she expressed the power of the roundtable dialogue.

130

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

“It was very insightful to listen to all partners’ perspectives. It is not often as a trade contractor that an owner gets to understand our perspective, nor for a trade to understand how a situation is viewed by an owner,” Holbrook explains. “Through this creative workshop environment, all our views were broadened to have more appreciation for the challenges each faces and things we can do differently to create success.” While the roundtable idea sounds simple enough, this model is sparsely used in the construction industry – not because it takes a great deal of coordination, but because the association needs to have strong relationships with the buyers of construction services, architects, and engineers in order to be successful. The CCA has spent years cultivating those relationships and thus is able to host such a successful, open roundtable workshop. All participants know they can speak openly and that

All partners know they can speak openly and that they will be heard in a respectful, non-threatening environment with a view to collaboratively resolving the issues that affect each of us. they will be heard in a respectful, non-threatening environment with a view to collaboratively resolving the issues that affect each of us. The process values that collaboration and respect are the keys to successful projects. It was also recognized that for this workshop to be successful, it needed to have all partners establish the agenda issues so that it wasn’t perceived as a “contractors only” event. The City of Calgary, Alberta Infrastructure, Alberta Urban Municipalities Association, University of Calgary, SAIT Polytechnic, Consulting Architects of Alberta, Consulting Engineers of Alberta, Alberta Construction Association, and Canadian Construction Association, in partnership with the Calgary Construction Association, have been structuring content and equally sharing the facilita-

tion role of the roundtable discussions since its inception. In 2013, the “how to” topics focused on day-to-day issues such as increasing the quality of plans and specifications, effectively managing the change-order process, and accessing the risk of the project. These topics culminated with specific actions that participants took away to incorporate into their daily routines to help the industry function more effectively. In 2014, one of the topics covered a big issue in the industry – how to be better innovators, a key to profitability. In the session “How to Foster Collaboration in Construction”, OAEC delegates discussed the importance of collaboration to the industry, the reasons why it doesn’t occur 99 per cent of the time in projects, and what can be done to change. The success of anything is determined by hearing what participants had to say and here is what the OAEC organizing committee heard: Owners – “The workshop was a great way for people in the construction world to discuss, identify and in some cases, provide workable solutions for issues we all have and want solutions to.” ~ Public Works and Government Services Canada “Excellent networking event that put industry stakeholders in a situation where they are driving toward common goals, rather than in an adversarial role.” ~ Alberta Infrastructure Designers – “A great interactive workshop; a real opportunity to learn from the perspectives of other industry partners, away from the day-to-day work issues.” ~ Associated Engineering Contractors – “A good opportunity to discuss the industry with representatives from every facet of construction.” ~ Anonymous “The key to all successful things in life, including construction projects, is teamwork and communication; this workshop reinforces both.” ~ Pockar Masonry “This was the most effective industry-focused event I’ve attended in years.” ~ Carbon Constructors While the February 25, 2015, OAEC workshop is in the planning stages, expected “how to” topics will focus around effectively utilizing BIM at the beginning of the construction process and implementing Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). Much of the ability to resolve construction issues rests with our willingness to truly understand each other’s perspectives; not until we really listen to each other to hear other’s concerns and needs can we find collaborative solutions for win-win projects. n

Serena Holbrook of Pockar Masonry participates in a breakout session discussing how to affect change management.

Howard Ashcraft, a senior partner from California-based Hanson Bridgett, was a facilitator at the OAEC workshop. Ashcraft is a skilled litigator involved in developing new approaches to construction project delivery such as Integrated Project Delivery (IPD).

How the West was Won Development at Stampede Park reflects the traditions and values of Alberta’s generations

By Deb Smith The 150,000-square-foot Agrium Western Event Centre, which can accommodate national and international western events, agricultural exhibitions and education and trade shows, officially opened in June 2014.

Within its inspired vision of developing Stampede Park into a year-round community hub in the heart of Calgary, the Calgary Stampede Foundation’s “We’re the Greatest Together Capital Campaign” continues to move ahead. Thanks to generous government, corporate, individual, and foundation donations, the three major development projects of Phase 1 are in various stages of completion.

Agrium Western Event Centre At a cost of $61 million, the 150,000-square-foot facility was built by Ledcor Construction Company through $25-million contributions each from the Government of Canada and the Government of Alberta, and generous donations from the key sponsor, Agrium Inc. Designed by Gibbs Gage Architects of Calgary to accommodate national and international

The Past Becomes the Future The generosity of entrepreneur and philanthropist Don Taylor is well-known across southern Alberta and especially in the city of Calgary. Along with numerous smaller donations that span health, education, and the arts, the Taylor Family Foundation gave $21 million to Mount Royal University for the Bella Concert Hall (named after the family matriarch Mary Belle Taylor) and $40 million to the University of Calgary for the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning. The latest donation is $15 million to the Calgary Stampede Foundation for the Stampede and Agriculture Museum (SAM Centre), named after the family patriarch, Robert Sam Taylor. Don Taylor believes in honouring the hard work and strong values of past generations. His own family, pushed off the farm during the Canadian Depression, came to Calgary poor in everything but spirit and determination.

134

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

His father worked the oilfields bailing oil, and ran a hamburger stand at the Calgary Stampede – whatever it took, until he could again work on the farm where his wife also ran a boarding house. With that kind of hard work and perseverance as inspiration, Taylor earned his engineering degree and later took on then-struggling Engineered Air to bring it to today’s international success. Continuing his family’s example, he has invested in and developed many successful business ventures and in 2008, was inducted into the Calgary Business Hall of Fame. Taylor’s commitment to the Calgary Stampede’s SAM Centre will bring tribute to all the cowboys, ranchers, and pioneers of Southern Alberta who worked and lived by those same values that have steered him through life, passing them down to future generations.

western events, agricultural exhibitions, and education and trade shows, the building features a 125-foot by 250foot show floor with seating for 2,500, plus VIP suites. The spectacular rotunda entrance with its panoramic view is used as a weekday classroom for Journey 2050, a special interactive education program focusing on agricultural sustainability. The building officially opened in June 2014, just in time for the annual Calgary Stampede. An adjacent 20,000-square-foot exhibition hall operates as a show-ring or warm-up arena or whatever diverse Stampede Park events might make use of its open space. As further development of facilities, the original Victoria Pavilion Building, part of the Agricultural Building, was given upgrades from electrical to exterior aesthetic improvements for a total cost of approximately $5.5 million. ENMAX Park On July 2, 2014, ENMAX Corporation announced a 10-year legacy investment in the transformation of approximately 30 acres (12 hectares), more than half along the Elbow River, into an inner city public park and gathering place. Originally named Riverfront Park, located on the east side of the Stampede, the area will be the new home for aboriginal peoples’ programming. “The existing Village building will be relocated into the Park,” says Warren Connell, vice president of Stampede Park Development. “Renovations will offer committee and meeting rooms, educational training rooms, and change room and support facilities for public year-round use.” And with more space, the Indian Village teepees will be able to take on the traditional circle formation, continuing its role of giving visitors an opportunity to experience First Nations culture and traditions. Penn West Exploration Stage will also be reconstructed in the new ENMAX Park beginning in spring 2015 and in the future, Rotary House, with its rustic log-cabin setting, will find a new home in the Park. The Cenovus Legacy Trail will wind


throughout the park, providing a 310-metre tour through time, an openair museum featuring six commissioned sculptures (two at the 12 Avenue SE entrance) that will portray milestones in Calgary’s history, along with interpretive signs to highlight the city’s western history and heritage. CarsonMcCulloch Associates Ltd. of Calgary is in charge of the landscape design, including the estimated 200 new trees and 800 shrubs that will enhance the environment for existing urban wildlife. Meanwhile, Clark Builders has already begun stripping and grading for the park, constructing a bypass pathway for river users while construction is going on. Immediately following the 2014 Calgary Stampede, Clark Builders began work to install a new five-metre pedestrian bridge across the Elbow River to replace the 1934 version that was taken by the 2013 flood. This bridge will link

unique and inspiring educational facility that will reflect the Stampede’s commitment to western heritage and values. In the spirit of that commitment, Calgary entrepreneur and philanthropist Don Taylor donated $15 million to the Stampede Foundation to create a multi-functional western interpretive facility as part of the Youth Campus, to be named the SAM Centre after his father, Robert Samuel Taylor. Connell recalls when the first spark of the project began. “We didn’t know what Don [Taylor] was thinking about in donations when he asked us to take a look at the Oklahoma Cowboy Hall of Fame [now named The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum]. The tremendous success of that museum in keeping the western heritage alive inspired the Stampede Foundation to make changes to their Youth Campus in the same tradition. Once we presented to Don what we were thinking, he decided he was in and in a major way.” The SAM Centre will be the Stampede’s agricultural museum, developed to find ways to connect rural and urban audiences. “The Stampede School Program will be able to go in here,” says Connell. “It’s an extremely popular Calgary Board of Education program in which students, mostly in the grade three to five range, come in classes one week at a time to learn about everything from environment to animals in relation to Alberta agriculture.” The extensive Stampede Archives will also be housed in the SAM Centre. Currently taking up 15,000 square feet in a rather difficult-to-access room crowded under the grandstand, the physical and digital files and artifacts will be more easily accessed by the public and for the many educational programs going on at Youth Campus. The Portico Group, a design group out of Seattle that specializes in connecting people with nature and culture, will be designing the master plan for programming of the centre, and Calgary’s Kasian Architecture will work with them towards the final design of the building. One other new facility, the outdoor BMO Amphitheatre, is currently under design and is planned to go to tender

late 2014 or early the following spring for construction post-Stampede 2015. As a final welcome addition to the Youth Campus, the Westbourne Church, which opened its doors in 1910 on the current Stampede grounds, will become a recital hall/classroom to accommodate smaller recitals and performances. The Gothic-Revival-style building, with its projection-type acoustics, will be excellent for the purpose. “It will provide a more intimate and affordable performance structure for youth groups,” explains Connell. “It will add to our vision of extending the Stampede outreach into the community.” The new facility will be renamed Walton Hall in recognition of the generous $1.5-million sponsorship of the Walton Group of Companies for its relocation and upgrading into another active participant in the vibrant atmosphere of the Youth Campus. It was in that same spirit of bringing Alberta’s proud history and traditions to the world that Guy Weadick first presented his six-day spectacle, the “Frontier Day Celebration and Championship to Calgary”, in 1912. And it is in that same spirit that today’s Stampede Foundation and many generous and forward-thinking sponsors will bring all the variety and richness of the Canadian West to its own people, as well as to the world. n

A Life Revisited

Ted Wealleans reflects on his childhood, his journey to Canada, and time as president for the CCA By Colleen Biondi

As children Ted Wealleans and his identical twin brother, Sid, would collect stickleback fish and sell them to people – 10 fish for a penny.

As a boy growing up in West London, Ted Wealleans had a dream – he’d become a shipbuilder, perhaps in nearby Scotland. Although that dream never came to fruition, his exceptional drawing skills set him on another path in the building industry. He became a first-class draftsman with expertise in steam systems, and after immigrating to Canada in 1965, spent the next 40-plus years as an integral part of the mechanical contracting business in Calgary. Wealleans attributes his career success to a combination of hard work, determination, and resilience. He was born in 1940, just after the war started, and learned many of those qualities living in a loving, but impoverished, family in a war-torn environment. His mother was a homemaker and his father worked in the De Havilland airplane factory. Times were tough, but they were tough for everyone in the community and Wealleans didn’t feel singled out. He and his two brothers

Ted and Sid have stayed close into adulthood, and retirement, texting or phoning each other regularly. Wealleans says that are “still inseparable”.

(Sid is his identical twin, best friend, and confidante and Johnny is two years younger) wore raggedy pants and blazers with patched elbows; sleeves were held in place with binding tape. A common meal was baked beans on toast with an egg on top. Milk, eggs, bread and cheese were all rationed. Wealleans’ mother was so conscientious that if she got one bad egg in a batch, she would put it in a tea cup and bring it back to the vendors for a replacement. Many families moved out of London during the war, but Wealleans’ family stayed put. He recalls running down the street to the nearby bomb shelter when the sirens blew. The smell of quartzite was everywhere. One day the family’s windows got blown out, but otherwise the family home stayed intact. Wealleans’ father didn’t serve in the war as he had vertigo. Following the war, there was a big street party; all the school children were given commemorative spoons, teacups,

and a special certificate of thanks from King George VI (Wealleans still has his) for sharing in the war effort and allied victory. After the war, the twins started their schooling at Moberley Primary. They cried the first day – not because they didn’t want to go to school, but because their mom was not staying there with them. They hated those first few weeks, but sticking together – as they continued to do throughout their lifetime – helped with the adjustment. When not at school, Wealleans and his brothers had vast options when it came to playtime. Although their mother didn’t like it, they played in the rubble of bombed-out homes looking for pennies and trinkets. They had to be careful while rummaging around as rats infested these premises, but they never got bitten. They used garbage lids as pretend shields and tossed stones at one another. “It was all harmless and a release of our energies,” he recalls.

1. At the age of 16, Wealleans started working at James Slater & Co in London, England, as a trainee draftsman (photo circa July 1957). 2. While at Campbell & Hillier Ltd., a mechanical contracting business, Wealleans became very active on the board of the Calgary Construction Association, and became president of the CCA in 1989. 3. Ted and his wife, Irene, were married in 1965, a week after moving to Canada. His work would take them back to Scotland, and then back to Canada, where they settled in Calgary. 4. Wealleans’ current passion is oil painting, and his favourite piece is a black and white piece of a father teaching his son how to play the violin.

The twins used to go to the Round Pond in Kensington Gardens and collect stickleback fish. Nicknamed “tiddlers,” these were inch-long fish that could fit easily into a Coca Cola bottle. They would sell them to people – 10 fish for a penny. If people were ready to buy, Wealleans would ask for two halfpennies so he could share one with his brother. Buyers were so taken by this generous gesture that they often gave him two pennies. “We were crafty kids.” While Wealleans and his siblings were up to their shenanigans, their dad had an accident at the factory, slicing off two of his fingers at the knuckles.

He received $500 quid (about $1,000 Canadian dollars) in compensation. He could’ve bought the family home, which they were leasing, with that kind of windfall. Instead he went to the local bars, such as the Elephant and Castle and the Frankfurt, gambled and had a few drinks. He wore big bandages on his fingers for a while, but the injury didn’t really slow him down. He could still go to work and roll his own cigarettes with St. Julien tobacco. Over time, their dad moved on to work at the General Post Office. He travelled much of the time in this job, but when he was in town, he built

trenches and put down telephone lines in the streets. The boys were big helpers. At night-time, they’d help him light paraffin lamps, which were left at the side of the trenches so people wouldn’t fall in. Dad wasn’t strong in math, so the boys also helped him calculate the cubic yards involved with the excavations, since he was paid for the size of each job. Back at school, the boys learned to read and write and passed their tests. They moved to Essendine Secondary Modern and, at the age of 13, Wealleans moved to Paddington Technical School, where he honed his drawing and design The CONSTRUCTOR 2015

skills. He then went on to get his Ordinary National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering. At the age of 16, he applied for a job as a trainee draftsman with James Slater & Sons Ltd., a subsidiary of a larger company that did kitchen designs. His weekly wage was three pounds, two shillings, and sixpence, half of which he gave to his mom for family expenses. At Slater, he learned how to trace a drawing on linen paper, do the office filing and process the purchase orders. The trainee sta-

tus allowed Wealleans to continue going to school one day a week. Eventually he would take night school, learning about fan systems, heating, and ventilating. It was at his next place of employment – a small plumbing and heating company – that Wealleans met Irene Kane, who would become his wife. But Irene was a tough sell. She already had a boyfriend and was not interested in his constant requests for a date. However, he wore her down and after he came over to her parents’ place for tea, she was hooked.

By spring of 1965, they were discussing leaving Britain together. Wealleans was not enamoured by the draconian politics of the day and wanted a fresh start – in one of the colonies. They applied to New Zealand, Australia, South Africa – even though Ted is terrified of snakes, which were plentiful there – and Canada. Canada was the first venue to respond with a welcome. The couple married at St. Mary’s Church in Buckinghamshire on September 18, 1965. One week later, they flew to Toronto and, through a British placement agency, Wealleans began work in Don Mills. That job was short-lived as he received an opportunity to re-cross the pond, this time to Scotland, for work at a sheet-metal shop. In 1969, back to Canada they came (with babies Tracey and Sara in tow) and settled in Calgary. Wealleans began work as a draftsman with companies that needed expertise in steam systems. For 10 years he worked in the feed industry, getting involved with grain handling and seed cleaning. While at Forest Larson Engineering, he went to South Africa to teach the locals about dust control and mixing of animal feeds and to help them construct grain storage bins which would hold up to the termites. They found materials like vinyl, tin, and treated wood worked well – so well, in fact, that the community decided to use the bins as their homes instead. At CVS Engineering he was a project manager for developments like the XL Foods Lakeside Packers plant (JBS U.S.A. took over operations in January 2013) in Brooks, Alberta. “It looks pretty ugly,” admits Wealleans, who wanted a slightly different design for the building. “But I am responsible for that one.” In 1979, he took over the presidency of Campbell and Hillier Ltd., a mechanical contracting business. All went well for a time and he became very active on the board of the Calgary Construction Association (CCA), taking positions as treasurer, vice-president and, finally, president in 1989; to this date, the CCA credits Wealleans for bringing the organization into the computer age. He also served on the provincial and national associations, was a member of


FEATURE | Past President Ted Wealleans

the Mechanical Contractors Association of Alberta and was one of only a handful of men from Alberta who served as the national chairman of the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada. He was also registered as an engineering technologist in Alberta. Despite these impressive positions and designations, his term at Campbell and Hillier would end with professional and personal disappointment. In 1993, he was forced to close the company due to unpaid debts. He declared bankruptcy and retreated from the industry – including from CCA meetings – for one year. “I hibernated,” explains Wealleans. “I was embarrassed.” A colleague encouraged him to get back into the fold. He returned to CCA meetings and to work. He worked for Stuart Olson as a mechanical electric coordinator for two years, working on projects like the Ponoka Hospital and the Red Deer Regional Hospital. In 2000, Wealleans opened his own business – Windsor Ventilation. He built a successful enterprise and then sold it in 2011. “My time was up,” he says. “I needed to retire.” Today, he lives in Cochrane, Alberta, and spends time with his three grown children, the previously-mentioned Tracey and Sara, as well as Amanda, along with six grandchildren. “I am so proud of them,” he says of his grandchildren, two of whom are competitive highland dancers. “They are good kids.” He has arthritis, but otherwise his health is good. He has recovered fully from a stroke in 1996 which initially left him with impaired vision. During the recovery phase, his doctor told him not to use the computer for six months. After 10 days, he was going crazy so got on the computer and drafted a nearly 100page family memoir called “Tiddlers – Ten a Penny.” While writing the book, his vision came back. Ted and Irene love to travel and have been to Germany, Vancouver Island, Mesa, Arizona and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Next up for the Wealleans? Ireland. Wealleans updates the database as a volunteer for the Cochrane and District Warm Water Therapy Pool Society. This group is building support for a program

that will include underwater treadmills as well as lift and wheelchair access to therapy pool facilities. As a younger man, he was involved with a group called the Active 20-30 Organization – a service club similar to the Kinsmen, but which has ceased functioning. He was also instrumental in bringing the Block Parent Safety Program to Calgary. In his spare time, he is a vintner, making a wide variety of white and red wines. Although he makes up to 200 bottles per year, he gives away almost

the entire batch. “I like a good glass of Scotch,” he admits. Wealleans’ current passion is oil painting. Dabbling in this venture since 1987, he has now created 15 paintings. Although he was offered $2,200 for one piece of work, he is neither showing nor selling them. One of his favourites is a black and white piece of a father teaching his son how to play the violin. The expression on the boy’s face is one of a child trying to play just the right note to make his father proud. This painting is

symbolic of Ted’s artistic work; there is a personal connection and a personal investment in each and every one. The notion of connection is a strong life value for Wealleans. “I am not a religious person,” he says. “But friendship and family are more important than any material item.” He uses email frequently and checks his Facebook account every day, posting updates for his intimate network. At day’s end, Wealleans has no regrets. He sometimes wonders if he might’ve been more financially successful if he’d worked in the oil and gas industry, but that is a passing

thought and doesn’t keep him up at night. Truly, nothing has been left undone. That includes his unwavering commitment to his twin. They say identical twins have a special bond and this is true of Ted and Sid. They played together as children and had each other’s backs during challenging times. They’ve stayed close into adulthood, getting together, talking regularly by phone or texting. Now, in their retirement years, they appreciate one another more than ever. “We are inseparable,” he says. “I will always have Sid.” n

The Dos and Don’ts of Construction Disputes

How to effectively avoid and manage disputes By Philip A. Carson, partner, Miller Thomson LLP

We all know the fable of a frog sitting in a pot of water that does not notice the water is heating up until the frog is cooked. Nobody in a construction dispute wants to be that frog. Disputes can heat up over time without either side knowing they are in a dispute, resulting in that neither party is wellequipped to handle the dispute in arbitration or in the courts if it cannot be resolved by negotiation. Here are some tips to effectively avoid and manage disputes. 1. Read, understand, and clarify the specifications and schedule before signing the contract. Construction requirements should be capable of being objectively measured. There should be no specifications that contradict other specifications. Specifications are often pulled together from various other projects and contradictions are not identified. The schedule should be realistic, as an overly ambitious schedule inevitably leads to disputes and failure. Engineering drawings should be issued-for-construction. Incomplete engineering at the time of construction contracting is a leading cause of construction disputes. 2. Ensure the site conditions are properly described. When an owner provides information about site conditions, interface with work under other contracts, owner-supplied materials or services or other project information, the owner has a duty to provide accurate and complete infor-

mation as to material facts affecting the work. Anything less is a misrepresentation for which the owner may be liable. 3. Establish a baseline schedule, cost, and work plan. Claims for extras, delays, change of scope and other types of claims all relate to what was originally planned. The merits of a claim for an additional cost cannot be determined if there is no point of reference. Similarly, claims regarding defective work cannot be determined without an objective

standard for that work. Whenever possible, decide upfront the standard and how it will be measured. 4. Do not be afraid to invoke the claims and dispute resolution processes. For the most part, owners and contractors are focussed on getting the job done, but a “can do” or “must do” attitude may lead the parties to forget about the rights, obligations, and remedies in their contract. Professional people sharing a contractual relationship should not be afraid to invoke the processes that they both agreed to. Make sure that all key personnel understand the contract, the change process and the claims process, and the authority that they have under those parts of the contract. 5. Follow the claims processes in the contract. Failure to give notice of a claim in a timely manner, to the right person, or in the right way may be fatal to a claim. If there is a dispute, it should be about the substance of the claim; a dispute should never be about the process. 6. Use the change processes effectively. Courts have ruled that a change order accepted by the parties is a complete amendment to the agreement. It is very difficult for a party to go back to later seek additional compensation for a delay or cumulative effect of a change already resolved in a change order. 7. Anchor the dispute in the contract and maintain credibility. All positions that you take regarding changes and claims should be anchored in the contract. Know the contract, follow the contract, and refer to the contract provision in your correspondence. Do not make dubious claims as they will diminish your credibility in respect of legitimate claims. 8. Communicate professionally and clearly. Once a claim is brewing, write every email or letter with the view that it could end up in front of a judge. Emotion and accusations do not belong in professional communications. Focus the communication on the issues at hand, keep communication factual, and be prepared to back up everything with a supporting record. It is best to stick to a single topic in your

correspondence related to a dispute; don’t mix dispute-related communication with other routine communication. You want your message to be clear and unambiguous if it ends up in front of a judge or arbitrator. 9. Do not mix with-prejudice messages and without-prejudice messages in the same correspondence. Claims and supporting records are factual “with prejudice” information. Settlement proposals are “without prejudice”. Withprejudice communications can end up in front of a judge or arbitrator, and without-prejudice communications should not. If you mix-and-match, there is a risk of settlement proposals being seen by the adjudicator. Who wants the adjudicator to know, for instance, that you were at one time willing to give up half your claim? 10. Keep your communications disciplined. Dedicate a point person for communications, limit the number of people who are copied on email, and don’t keep circulating the same chain of email. Sloppy communication increases the risk of the wrong information being communicated to the wrong people, such as an inadvertent “reply all”. 11. Keep records. If a claim goes to court of arbitration, the story will be told by the documentary record of costs, dates, schedules, delays, and site instructions. The party with the most complete and accurate records will have the upper hand in proving their position. Disputes are often unavoidable. Many disputes arise because the contract is unclear from the start or the schedule is unrealistic. The best way to avoid a legitimate dispute is to eliminate uncertainty in the agreement and in the design. If a dispute does arise, you will be better positioned to deal with the substance of a dispute in an effective and professional manner if you understand and follow the contract and use the advice above. Philip Carson leads the construction litigation group in the Calgary office of Miller Thomson LLP. n

Oxford Airport Business Park sets the stage to become a new distribution hub for the city of Calgary By Melanie Franner

Oxford Airport Business Park, a projected four-millionsquare-foot development near the Calgary International Airport, will address the growing need for industrial distribution and warehousing space in the northeast sector of Calgary.

They say that bigger isn’t always better. But in this case, Oxford Properties Group decided to go big and make it one of the best master-planned business parks possible. The real-estate investment, development, and management company has broken new ground in the city with the proposed Oxford Airport Business Park – a projected four-million-square-foot development strategically located near the Calgary International Airport. “Calgary is one of the core industrial markets in Canada and is often the main distribution hub for Western Canada,” explains Jeff Miller, vice president – Industrial, Oxford Properties Group. “We were looking to get positioning in the city and saw this as a great opportunity.” The first step in this endeavour came in May 2008, when the company ac-

was formerly used for agricultural use so there was a lot of planning, engineering, and servicing required to bring the business park on stream. “Fortunately, the City of Calgary had already designated the area as future employment land,” says Miller, who adds that the City was very supportive of the company’s goals.

FEATURE | Oxford Airport Business Park

The Oxford Airport Business Park is a multi-year, multi-phase development. The first two stages of this massive undertaking are now complete, with the third soon to be underway. And it looks like the market is anxiously awaiting its arrival. These goals were embodied in the company’s vision to develop: 3.3 million square feet of industrial distribution/warehouse space (with the facilities themselves ranging anywhere from 100,000 to 400,000 square feet); 300,000 square feet of office space; 60,000 square feet of retail space; and a potential 350 to 400 hotel rooms. “The main focus of our vision is the industrial development,” states Miller. “Market demand will dictate how the balance of the other uses unfold. But our bigger vision is to have complementary usage in the park.” In July 2010, Oxford Properties Group officially kicked off construction with the first phase of site work. This involved mass grading, infrastructure, storm-water ponds, and the first stage

156

of required roadways. The next major phase occurred in mid-2011, with the start of construction on the first two buildings. By the fall of 2013, an additional two buildings had joined the former two and Oxford Properties had on hand some 920,000 square feet of industrial distribution space. “In North America today, buildings are constructed on a speculative basis,” explains Miller. “By summer 2014, we had 82 per cent of the buildings leased. There is no doubt that we’re off to a great start.” These leases support a flexible offering, with customers signing on for spaces that range from 13,000 to 180,000 square feet. And the customers themselves are involved in a variety of industries – everything from manufacturing

to traditional warehousing and distribution. Miller goes on to say construction on the next phase – which will include up to three buildings for an approximate total of 843,000 square feet – will start in fall 2014. Delivery will be in September 2015. Location, location, location Developing an industrial business park on a scale like this is no easy task. But it is made easier when the location is ideal. “From an industrial standpoint, this is one of the largest parks we have built in Canada,” states Miller, who cites other significant Canadian parks in the works, such as the Cityview and Northport 1.5-million-square-foot business parks in Edmonton (the former of which is in the final stages of completion and the latter just underway). The company is also kicking off the 1.1-million-square-foot Riverbend Business Park in Burnaby, B.C. “The location for the business park in Calgary was a natural progression for industrial growth in the city. Traditionally, there has been a lot of industry in the southeast portion of the city. This has already started to morph a bit to the northeast.” The Calgary International Airport’s new 14,000-foot-long runway, and more important, the road underneath the runway connecting Airport Trail to the growing northeast sector of the city, will contribute to the area’s growing need for industrial distribution and warehousing space. “We certainly like this area’s proximity to the airport; however, what is more important to us is the quick access to the critical highway network and the availability of labour and amenities,” continues Miller. The Oxford Airport Business Park fronts two major city arteries: Deer-

foot Trail and Airport Trail. Significant frontage on both those major roadways is expected to help Oxford Properties Groups develop the retail amenities and eventually, to attract suburban office-users to the area. “We believe we are building one of the premier business parks in Calgary – offering various uses in a high-quality design,” states Miller. “We see this as a business park with a professional environment where businesses and their employees will want to locate.” The architectural design and green spaces that Oxford Properties Group has incorporated into the business park will serve to increase this attraction. “A lot of time has been spent on the architectural design, such as prominent glass entries and creating flexible product to meet market demand,” explains Miller. “Sustainable, eco-friendly design is very important to Oxford. The entire development adheres to very strict storm-water management practices and connectivity from the facilities to the Regional Pathway system. Oxford also incorporates green initiatives into construction, such as water-infiltration galleries, drought-resistant landscaping, and energy-efficient lighting systems.” Moving forward The Oxford Airport Business Park is a multi-year, multi-phase development. The first two stages of this massive undertaking are now complete, with the third soon to be underway. And it looks like the market is anxiously awaiting its arrival. According to the Q1 2014 Calgary Industrial MarketView report from CBRE, a full-service real-estate services company, the City of Calgary had a busy first quarter from a leasing perspective. The report states that there was 750,000+ square feet of positive net absorption during this time and that this absorption figure is “comfortably above the five-year quarterly absorption average of 451,385 square feet.” “It is widely expected this figure will climb over the remainder of the year as large end-users, who are currently seeking space in the market, secure premises,” states the report.

Oxford Property Group’s Miller is excited about the new business park and specifically, the next phase. “This is a significant project for Oxford, particularly for our national industrial platform,” notes Miller. “Our plan is to keep going with our next phase of industrial development planned for later this year and soon after, to develop some amenity retail to support the companies that have located in the area. Ultimately, we want to build the right product to meet the demands of the Calgary market.”

And having attained an 82 per cent leasing rate on the first four buildings, Oxford Properties Group certainly looks like it knows what it’s doing. The city’s business community has responded with resounding acceptance. “The City of Calgary has been very supportive of the park,” concludes Miller. “Reaction from businesses is really only validated with leasing success and so far, we’re very happy with the leasing numbers that we have been able to achieve.” n

Who Wouldn’t Want Gold? What it means to become Gold Seal certified

By Aly Pringle

Fabrizio Carinelli, president of CANA Construction and 2014 CCA chair, welcomes special guests to the National Music Centre Gold Seal Celebration.

CANA Construction, the National Music Centre, and the Calgary Construction Association, along with trade contractors, trades personnel, and many others celebrated the recognition of the National Music Centre as a Gold Seal Project on August 13, 2014. The event welcomed presentations by Fabrizio Carinelli, president of CANA and 2014 chair of the Calgary Construction Association (CCA), Stephanie Wallace, Gold Seal program manager from the Canadi-

an Construction Association, and Gary Duke, director of Project Management for Duke Evans and project manager for the National Music Centre. Each representative discussed the partnerships and collaboration that has unfolded as a result of working together on the National Music Centre. To accentuate the event, Gold Seal certificates were presented to nine individuals while a musical quartet played in the background, adding a sophisticated ambiance and

creating a unique contrast of the site before and after construction, and what it will eventually be transformed into. Following the presentations, a BBQ lunch was served on-site for special attendees and trades personnel, with each individual given a Gold Seal ball cap to promote certification. In order for a project to be designated a “Gold Seal Project” requires that the general contractor be an advocate for the Gold Seal Certification Program. Currently, all of CANA’s working professionals on-site are either Gold Seal certified or are in the process of pursuing certification. The Gold Seal initiative promotes and recognizes the highest level of construction management skills, continuing education, and professional development in the Canadian construction industry. As an organization, CANA promotes education and advancement within their staff to ensure that their management skills reflect the highest of industry standards. As CANA’s first Gold Seal Project, the National Music Centre has served as an important platform to promote worker competency within the company, as well as trade contractors, and will ensure that the project delivery meets industry standards and best practices. All members of the Canadian construction industry are striving to achieve these standards, which increase their [construction professionals’] appeal to project owners, who know they will be getting the best of a qualified workforce. “We’ve seen a growing number of interested firms in Canada who want to explore how they can register a Gold Seal Project,” says Barry Brown, chair of the National Gold Seal Committee. “Gold Seal Projects help increase a project’s exposure and the tangible benefits of certifying employees are felt well beyond a project’s completion.

Gold Seal certification is offered for project managers, superintendents, estimators, construction safety coordinators, and owner’s project managers. To become certified in one of these designations requires a minimum of five years’ experience, along with a mini-

mum of 150 hours of relevant post-secondary education. Applicants are also required to write an exam, requiring a minimum grade of 75 per cent in order to pass. The application process is electronic and can be accessed from the Gold Seal website (noted below).

There are many benefits to pursuing Gold Seal certification. Companies who mandate that their employees be certified show a commitment to striving for excellence, will signify that a project has competent management professionals on staff, and will showcase that the company

values professionalism and ongoing education. In addition, certification provides a competitive advantage on certain tenders. For individuals pursing certification, their professional skills, competency, and experience will be reflected while enhancing the image of the construction industry. Calgary is currently leading the way with the most Gold Seal certifications throughout Canada. Since the commencement of the program, there are more than 9,500 Gold Seal certificate-holders across the country, with 850 of them living in Calgary. Since January of 2014, there have been 50 applications submitted from Calgary. In addition, the National Music Centre is the third Gold Seal Project in Calgary, the first being the South Health Campus and the second being SAIT’s Trades and Technology Centre. “Our partner associations such as the Calgary Construction Association are integral in spreading the word about Gold Seal certification, and ensuring members can demonstrate their education and expertise in construction management,” says Brown. “We were very pleased once again to see this support from the Calgary construction industry, where firms continue to exhibit their commitment to Gold Seal.” The Calgary Construction Association encourages all companies and individuals to pursue Gold Seal certification to set a higher standard for construction professionals throughout the country.

Gold Seal signage and alternating navy- and gold-coloured flags were affixed on the site fences of the National Music Centre and will be displayed for the duration of the project, demonstrating the team’s commitment to construction excellence.

FEATURE | Central Library

A Collective Connection New Central Library to bridge time and space

By Melanie Franner

Calgary’s new Central Library, built on the feedback of thousands of Calgarians, is set to become a landmark building that acts as an opportunity to re-connect East Village to the downtown core.

Winston Churchill once said that a pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity and an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. Such can be said about the breath-taking architecture of Calgary’s New Central Library, set to open in 2018. Located just east of Calgary City Hall in the East Village, the four-storey building will stand apart not only for its beautiful curved and graceful design, but also for its placement atop the city’s LRT – a feature that necessitated some serious consternation on the part of the architectural team Snøhetta and DIALOG. “We viewed the site as a ‘probatunity’, which is a combination of problem and opportunity,” explains Rob Adamson, partner, DIALOG. “The geometry of the curving train tracks meant that the building was sort of separated in two. There was no budget in the proj-

ect to re-align the tracks so we had to sit back and think of how we could leverage the situation to be an opportunity. We ended up designing a curving, structural system to the building. The fact that we had to go up and over the LRT tracks enabled us to make an amazing outdoor public plaza where people in the community can congregate.” The result is a sophisticated and inviting design with plenty of natural light and space for people to explore, relax, and connect. And by creating a gentle raising of the building to ac-

commodate the encapsulation of the LRT tracks (the first time in Calgary’s history that an active LRT line will be encapsulated to allow for above-grade development), the building provides a calming balance between the interior and exterior spaces. Creating a landmark building With close to 10 million visitors a year checking out their 15 city branches, the Calgary Public Library was in desperate need of a new centralized location to act as the “heart and hub” of its system for the next century. A

Feedback from some 16,000 people overwhelmingly spoke of the need for a building with a wide range of gathering spaces and a space with plenty of natural light.

total of $245 million in funding from the Calgary City Council, the Community Investment Fund, and the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) eventually made the idea a reality and thus began a two-year process to gather information from Calgarians themselves on what they wanted the library to become. Feedback from some 16,000 people overwhelmingly spoke of the need for a building with a wide range of gathering spaces and a space with plenty of natural light. And the architects delivered. “The central organizing element to the building is the atrium,” states Adamson. “It’s an unusual geometric oval shape because we had to follow the curvature of the LRT tracks beneath it. This soaring, four-storey atrium drives the natural light right through the heart of the building. There is a gentle stair element that wraps around this central space and provides the visitor with a vantage point into every functional space of the library. This vantage point creates an intuitive understanding of how to use the library.” The existing LRT track meant the architects had to lift the ground plane up and over, creating an exterior passage. This raised foundation allowed for clear visibility throughout the building’s reading areas. “The door to the library is at the upper terrace, overlooking both East Village and Municipal Hall,” explains Vanessa Kassabian, director/project architect, Snøhetta. “Our goal was to create a bright and airy space that was easily understood. Once you enter the library, you walk into an atrium space with a skylight above and views to each of the different library departments. We have used natural wood for the exterior passage soffit and this wood continues into the library entry and throughout the atrium, helping draw the eye up.” The library also features an extensive mix of reading, instructional, techno-

Another interesting element of the design is the library’s theatre space – a completely transparent area that can accommodate 340 people, and which is completely visible from the outside. “We wanted people outside of the library to be engaged with what was happening within, to be invited inside,” adds Adamson. The exterior of the New Central Library will also be interesting in that it will feature a pixilated curtain-wall highlighted with abstract geometrical shapes of alternating glazed and solid panels – a distinguishing characteristic

specific expertise of key trades early, during the design of the project. “This is definitely one of those buildings that you have to build twice,” says Polson. “You have to first build it in your head in order to become confident with it before you can hand out the different components to the subtrades and get them to believe in the project.” Polson anticipates that once the structure and curtain-wall are erected, the number of subtrades personnel will probably reach 600 during peak construction. He also sees the need for modern construction tools, like BIM and 3D modeling, to handle the job. “There is no question that that is going to be one of the more interesting projects to work on,” he adds. “Many people will see this opportunity as a lifetime achievement.” Bridging the gap In addition to delivering on both the architectural and functional sides, the New Central Library is expected to help connect the burgeoning East Village to the city’s downtown area.

“We wanted the New Central Library to be a landmark building, built within budget and built on the feedback of thousands of Calgarians. We also viewed the building as an opportunity to re-connect East Village to the downtown core,” explains Susan Veres, vice president, marketing and communications, CMLC. “East Village sits on the eastern edge of the downtown core. For years now, City Hall has been a barrier on our western edge, disconnecting this community from other downtown communities. We viewed this as an excellent opportunity to reconnect.” According to CMLC, East Village will be home to more than 11,000 residents upon completion in 2027. “CMLC considers the New Central Library as one of the most important and enduring gestures a city can make,” adds Veres, who adds that approximately 80 per cent of the library’s 236,000 square feet (which includes public space and 40,000 square feet for future library expansion) will be public space. Another important aspect of the new building will be two public art initiatives: one involving the temporary fencing around the construction site, which is in-line with the City’s initiative to beautify hoarding, and the other being the creation of permanent art for the interior of the library. A true learning experience With a highly unusual and eyecatching design driven by the need to overcome difficulties inherent in the site itself, the New Central Library has risen above to embody a new and inspiring vision for all to enjoy. Its grand atrium and corresponding abundance of natural light will play to and enhance the building’s functional and practical elements while gently moulding it into a “cultural connector” that will open the door between east and west. The New Central Library is both a testament to the strength of a bold and innovative design and a vision to a new and exciting community – both of which will attract one and all. n

FEATURE | CCA Construction Career Expo

Construct Your Future

Students explore, learn, and plan for the future at the CCA’s Construction Career Expo By the Calgary Construction Association

The expo is made possible by the support of dedicated industry volunteers who assist with everything from bus greeting, registration, lunch distribution, and more.

The eighth annual Construction Career Expo was a huge success, setting a record for the most students to enter through the doors of Hall B at Stampede Park’s BMO Centre on April 24, 2014. This year, 2,600 students attended the expo from all over Calgary and area. There were also a few new faces from schools that travelled all the way from High River, Cremona, and Canmore. The Grade 7 to 12 students were extremely excited to view and interact with the 45 exhibitors who represented different member firms of the Calgary Construction Asso-

ciation (CCA), as well as different trade contracting associations. As students were dropped off by buses outside BMO Centre, the air was filled with excitement and anticipation of what the day would bring. Enthusiastic CCA volunteers presented students with bright blue T-shirts upon walking into the hall that featured the message “Construct Your Future”, as well as a bag containing safety glasses and a construction quiz. A familiar motto with the Calgary Construction Association is “collabora-

tion” and in that theme, Westcor Construction orchestrated an activity to do just that – having students interact with the exhibitors and with each other as a team. Westcor Construction had students pair up into two teams of four people. One group had to look inside a box at a structure that was created with differentsized Lego pieces, and the other group stood in front of a table with the samesized Lego pieces but dismantled. The objective was to have the second team construct the same structure that was

hidden inside the box. The latter group’s job was to wait for instruction from the other team about how to construct the structure so the students had to learn (quickly) how to effectively and efficiently communicate with one another. The exercise facilitators from Westcor witnessed the students use various communication methods, such as taking turns with instructions, or using iPhones to take pictures and text. There were no rules on how to communicate, but it was timed to determine how effective the students were at getting the job done right and as quickly as possible. This provided an opportunity for students to see the importance of collaboration on a group project. Another booth that captured the at-

tention of the students was the virtual spray-painting activity hosted by the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). Students put on a special head piece with glasses and held a virtual spray-paint gun to experience the simulation of painting. All the booths at the expo were extremely diverse, with a variety of construction trades being represented. One of the highlights was BURNCO Rock Products, which brought a concrete truck to the expo and had students experience pouring concrete. The Spalding Hardware Systems booth allowed students to try their hand at connecting and opening different circuits, while the Masonry Contractors Association mentored students in the art of bricklaying.

A popular activity that takes place every year at the expo is the building of six dog houses on-site, sponsored by the Calgary General Contractors Association. Pierre Champness of CANA Construction led the group of approximately 16 individuals this year. Champness and his team constructed a dog house that was displayed as the model for the students at the expo. The students got to experience carpentry and building firsthand. Not only did the students have fun and learn a lot during this activity, but six new dog houses came out of it. Following the expo, the dog houses were delivered to the Cochrane Humane Society to be donated to dogs in the Morley area that were in desperate need of new homes.

CCA’s Expo Committee Chairman Grant Symon of Graham Construction & Engineering presents a thrilled student with an iPad Mini following the expo.

The construction quiz that was handed out to the students at the beginning of the day was enthusiastically completed as students hurried to different booths to find the answers. The students were advised that the lucky winners would be drawn and could win one of three iPod minis. The quiz allowed the students to interact with exhibitors and gave them incentive to find out more information on specific trades. The CCA’s Women in Construction (WIC) committee hosted a booth to encourage female students to consider a career in construction. The construction industry is still heavily maledominated, with women representing only 14 per cent of people in the trades. WIC strives to inform women about the many opportunities they have to pursue a career in construc-

tion. There is a need to communicate the options available to women, as many are not getting the information they require. According to the Construction Sector Council, half of the young women aged 18 to 34 surveyed had never received information about careers in construction trades or management. WIC continues to explore partnerships with high schools and post-secondary institutions such as SAIT to help spread the message of the vast amount of industry opportunities. The CCA would like to thank all of the participants who brought in employees to showcase construction career opportunities to youth. Thank-you to over 50 volunteers who took time out of their busy schedules to come out and help the association load and unload supplies, greet students at the buses, organize and hand out the giveaways, and everything in between. The expo would not be the great success it is if it was not for every person who helped out, as well as the industry support and sponsorship. The CCA looks forward to making next year’s expo an even bigger success. n

Recreation and leisure planning taking shape in Calgary

By Deb Smith Quarry Park Recreation Facility, 95,000-square-foot building, features a more linear, sophisticated look and will focus on introductory activities and basic skill development.

The City of Calgary continues to move forward on its plan to meet the growing city’s need for convenient access to recreation opportunities and to support the important role it plays in building complete communities as the construction of four new recreation facilities gains momentum: Quarry Park Recreation Facility Situated at the centre of 16.5-acres (6.68 hectares) in an office park and residential area that was previously industrial, the new Quarry Park Recreation Facility has been designed with a focus on introductory activities and basic skill development. Surrounded by both businesses and residences, the program approach is more urban to serve all segments of the population,

with a fitness centre accommodating morning and lunchtime users from local offices, along with evening and weekend programs. The 95,000-square-foot building will feature a 25-metre, sixlane lap pool, a smaller leisure pool, gymnasium and fitness centre with strength and cardio training equipment and a running/ walking track. The Glenmore Square branch of the Calgary Public Library will relocate to the facility to provide full-scale library services along with program and meeting rooms.

and three-storey office buildings with a “more linear, sophisticated look” within a large landscaped exterior. The south-facing public plaza will provide an informal gathering place that features a large outdoor sculpture as part of the Calgary Public Art Plan for new recreational facilities. This plan allocates one per cent of the total eligible capital project costs for projects greater than $1 million to go to public art as further enhancement of the lives of Calgary’s citizens. “As part of the design team, Canadian artist Adad Hannah is developing a sculpture monumental enough to invite visitors to sit on, walk through, lean or stretch against it,” states Marc Aquin, design and construction leader with the City. On the west side of the building, an expansive glass wall will bring light into the aquatics area while also opening the building to the community. No outdoor areas are currently planned, although there will be connections into existing pathways. Because of the proximity to both an operational and a closed landfill, the setback requirements leave a large open area on the east side of the site. “The project was tendered in the spring of 2014,” says Tankard. “Bird Construction is the general contractor with the foundation work currently underway. The building will sit on a pile foundation with depths of nine to 12 metres to reach bedrock.” The project is scheduled to open in 2016 and will be operated by YMCA Calgary. Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility Located at 11300 Rocky Ridge Road NW, this facility has a similar focus on serving the surrounding region and its needs, but results in a very different project. “The Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility is really a building within a park,” explains Joanne Paulenko, acting manager of New Recreation Facilities Project for the City of Calgary. “Featuring views of the mountains and surrounded by wetlands, the 285,000-squarefoot facility will sit in the middle of a natural park.” The building will curve around the site to reflect the natural contours as a bridge between urban and rural life, complementing the surrounding rolling landscape at Calgary’s highest natural elevation of 1,289 metres in the northeast corner of the site. Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility will offer a 25-metre, eightlane competition pool along with a large leisure pool with wave system and water slides, hot tubs, and a steam room. Two ice

rinks, multi-purpose and leisure, a gymnasium with three full courts, a climbing wall and a fitness centre with running/walking track are in the plans. A 300-seat theatre along with art studios, gallery and workshops will facilitate many cultural activities for users; daycare and child-minding spaces, as well as a youth centre, add to the multi-generational focus of the facility. Supported by the Crowfoot Library, a 3000-square-foot open-concept public library with automated materials checkout equipment and “smart” return chutes will be situated on the public upper level overlooking the pools, gyms, and other activity areas below. Tankard reflects on the challenge that designing such a facility provided. “How to create a single building that gives the user a sense of all these different options and services available to them? We wanted a building designed that when you go into it, all those opportunities are visible and obvious, rather than the traditional model of a recreation centre where each function – the pool, the gym – are in a closed box.” The answer is a common, unifying roof form that offers a strong and open relationship between culture, sport, and recreation and which integrates into the rolling landscape. “The roof can shrink-wrap the interior programs,” says Tankard. “For example, over the theatre, where it needs a lot of volume, we can bring the roof up to its highest point and then lower it again over the fitness centre. Even though the building appears to be an organic, freeform shape, it actually has a consistent grid and completely repetitive structure.” PCL Construction Management Inc. is the construction manager on this unique project. The first stage of stripping and grading the site was completed this summer by Kidco Construction,

ice sports. Under the design guidance of Marshall Tittemore Architects (MTA), it will feature two boarded, NHL regulation-size ice rinks with enhanced spectator seating for one rink. As well, the 8,000-square-foot building will contain multi-purpose training/fitness rooms and food services in order to provide a competitive tournament facility. Situated on the east side of 12.4 acres, amenities could be expanded to the west in the future to accommodate lacrosse and ball hockey. The City of Calgary is working with the facility operator Canlan Ice Sports to ensure the programs and services will meet the needs of the local ice community. At an estimated cost of $33 million, opening is planned for the middle of 2016 with the RFP for general contractor closing in fall 2014. Seton Recreation Facility “The project is now at the end of the Schematic Design stage,” remarks David Wittman, project architect with Gibbs Gage Architects, “after a thorough engagement process with stakeholders to properly plan the overall 45-acre site as a truly public areas precinct.” The Seton Recreation Facility is located at 19340 45 Street SE in the heart of a vibrant urban centre. Proposed amenities will include recreational, leisure, and cultural activities with its 53-metre, 10-lane competitive pool, leisure pool, a simulator, water slides, a 10-metre diving tower, hot tubs and steam room, two multi-purpose ice rinks, a gymnasium with three full courts, and a fitness centre with running/walking track.

new Seton Library, a full-service regional branch of the Calgary Public Library, a 300-seat theatre, a youth centre, childcare facilities, and art studios/galleries will all be held within the 330,000 square feet of this community hub. The expansive, dramatic roof represents the concept of a gathering place with its angular folds when changing height to mirror the mountains to the west. Wittman explains, “It is designed for LEED Gold and also within the City of Calgary’s mandate to be an environmentally sustainable and socially sustainable building. For example, we have oriented components in the building to buffer the colder northwest winds with ice arenas, and internalized the vast majority of the pool as it has the highest heating load of all the programs.” A lot of thought and collaboration with stakeholder groups has gone into the design, such as the roof being layered to allow north light into the pool and reduce the glare for lifeguards. “The first significant challenge/element of the design is the site and the constraints put on it with the adjacent uses and the future LRT tunnel bisecting the site. This, coupled with the size of the building, has challenged us to be imaginative with the site,” says Wittman. “Connectivity in a building like this, with a six-acre footprint, is about understanding the building and not feeling lost; allowing people to orient themselves to the outside through changes in noise, light, and emotion.” Outside, a generous plaza indicates a sense of arrival, a gathering place open to the community. The profile will be low, an almost horizontal building as counterpoint to the nearby South Health Campus that dominates the vertical landscape. Even the parking lots do their part towards the City of Calgary vision of sustainability, with shaped curbs and painted lines to allow for street bas-

ketball when the lots are not full or busy once the facility opens in 2018. The amount of discussion and creativity involved in bringing these four recreational facilities into the design stage is

huge, but through the collaborative process, the City of Calgary will continue to enrich the sport, recreational and cultural lifestyle of it citizens for generations to come. n

The past chairs (formerly presidents) of the Calgary Construction Association (CCA) gathered on July 23, 2014, at the Annual Past Chairs Luncheon. Each year, the former CCA chairs gather together to visit and catch up on the current happenings of their working or retired life. Heritage Park provided excellent ambiance for this year’s reunion luncheon. Gathered in the Selkirk Grille Gallery of Gasoline Alley, the past chairs enjoyed a delicious buffet while overlooking the classic cars and historic artifacts that are displayed in the Grand Hall. Following the lunch, a guide from Heritage Park led the group on a tour of the upstairs Grand Hall and downstairs museum, which (combined) features 50 vehicles, approximately 150 gas pumps, and a variety of globes. A highlight of the tour included seeing Past Chair Bob Steele’s 1930 Marmon rumble-seat coupe, made in Indianapolis, Indiana.

“Marmon cars were extremely popular from 1906 to 1933. A Marmon actually won the first Indianapolis 500 in 1911,” states Steele. The car had been a wreck sitting on a farm in Irma, Alberta, before Steele’s neighbour brought it home. When the neighbour’s plans to restore the car took longer than his wife cared to wait, she approached Steele to purchase the vehicle. Bob Steele (CCA chair in 1973) spent 1,600 hours of labour Steele began restoring the Marrestoring this 1930 Marmon rumble-seat coupe that he mon in 1983, tearing it down one donated to Heritage Park in July 2014. nut and bolt at a time.
