Last night the Remington YMCA won a Wood WORKS! Alberta Prairie Wood Design Award! Winning in the category of Recreational Wood Design, the award for this urban recreation facility recognizes the recipient’s ability to push the boundaries of wood in construction.
The Remington YMCA uses wood as its main structural element, creating a warm and welcoming environment for its users. Wood also provides two architectural advantages: first, it can be an economical solution for long span structures over gymnasiums and swimming pools; and second, wood’s natural preservative properties make it optimal for use in humid pool environments. Congratulations to the team!

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.
This past weekend, the GEC team was on site to join in the grand opening festivities at the Remington YMCA in southeast Calgary. Previously an industrial area, Quarry Park is being transformed into an office park and residential community. The new facility is part of this transformation, providing fitness, leisure and cultural amenities to those that live and work in the area. The hard work and dedication of the team over the past five years was finally realized in the form of a beautiful new facility come to life with the buzz of community and activity!
