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!
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!
