Bridging Communities

The Pedestrian Overpass in Calgary’s Westbrook neighborhood is getting a makeover! The current overpass will be removed, making way for a new structure that addresses accessibility in this busy pedestrian corridor. Construction on this GEC-designed bridge starts this year!

Baggage Handling System at the YYC

To ensure that passengers at YYC, one of Canada’s busiest airports, provides the highest quality experience for its passengers, it is important that the Baggage Handling Systems (BHS) in both the International Terminal and Domestic operate as one system to provide seamless connections for baggage between domestic, international and transborder flights.

With the new International Terminal completed and in operation for over a year, and with over 16 million passengers (and rising) being processed per year at the airport, The Calgary Airport Authority  is working with YYC and Crisplant (a leading innovator of baggage handling systems) to update the Domestic terminal with the faster and more energy-efficient baggage movement systems already in use in the International Terminal.

CTV recently featured the BHS and what it is capable of, check it out here: https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1314757

Let's Tee Off!

We had a great time at the 6th annual Golf Tournament in support of enhancing the student experience at St. Mary’s.

We recently completed the St. Mary’s Heritage Centre comprised of a highly flexible main gathering space that is approximately 1,700 square feet. Retractable theatre seating suitable for musical, dramatic and theatre uses. The facility also has large sliding barn doors that open to the linear gallery space.

U of A’s East Campus is Taking Shape With New Residences

The University of Alberta East Campus is quickly evolving into a student residence village destined to be an iconic part of student life at the U of A. With sweeping views of the river valley, dining halls, collaboration spaces, and individual rooms, the residences will provide a place for students to live, share ideas, and connect as part of a vibrant student community.  As the landmark residence on the site, Peter Lougheed Hall is expected to be complete this spring for students to move in and make their mark. Visit SKYRISE Edmonton for a detailed look at the East Campus residence development.
