Providing the runway for tech startups to take off.
CLIENT Calgary Technologies
LOCATION Calgary, AB
The Alastair Ross Technology Centre (ARTC) for Calgary Technologies Inc. (CTI) is a mixed-use development designed for multiple phases of construction. Located on the University Innovation Park, it serves as a link between the University of Calgary campus to the South and the commercial research activity taking place in University Innovation Park. Phase I was the conversion from a purpose-built wet lab building to office space for technology tenants. Phase II was the addition of a three storey office building designed for small tenants with a high-technology focus.
Phase III (ARTC III) is a 100,000 square foot addition to the existing ARTC. ARTC III will complement and expand on CTI's mandate of providing incubator space and services for small high-tech and bio-tech business by integrating high quality, flexible office space, shared commercial services (meeting and conference facilities, administration support, etc.), biological laboratories and associated services, and high tech laboratories in one purpose built building. The site will incorporate an ample amount of underground parking and secure loading space. The integration of these components into a single space will make this building the first of its kind in Alberta.
