Saddletowne LRT Station
Client City of Calgary | Location Calgary, AB | Completion 2012
GEC helped lead a successful public consultation process with the community to build consensus about the design direction for this station. Through the public consultation, the community was engaged in a series of workshops that debated various approaches to the design.
Sited in a prominent location, this station is a landmark in the community. The centre loaded platform has a dynamically shaped wood and steel framed canopy. The two heated shelters include lanterns that extend above the canopy to create beacons in the community. Ultimately, wide buy-in was achieved from all stakeholders.
