Remington takes home a MASI award!

Last night the first-ever MASI Design Awards were held, and the Remington YMCA took home an award in the Special Projects category for design excellence! Our team is proud to have partnered with the City of Calgary and the YMCA on this facility, which has positioned itself as a central hub for Calgary’s Quarry Park neighborhood and a benchmark for future recreation design in Canada. With community and connectivity at its core, the design of the Remington YMCA is an intelligent, inclusive response to an evolving environment. The facility expresses a character shaped by the citizens and the city it serves.

The MASI (Manitoba / Alberta / Saskatchewan Interior) Design Awards are hosted by IDA, PIDIM and IDAS and features projects in interior design across all three Prairie provinces.

The brewery's success prompted the company to relocate their production to a new location in the Foothills Industrial Park. GEC repurposed an existing warehouse to create a new production facility that address Wild Rose Brewery’s increased demand.
