Heritage Park Historical Village expansion

Calgary's Heritage Park Historical Village takes visitors back on a time journey, spanning from the 1950s back to the 1860s, and captures the early settlement of western Canada with costumed interpreters, historic buildings, and working antiques and artifacts.

During the park's recent $50-million expansion, Dominion Construction Co. Inc., the construction manager, oversaw the construction while the park remained fully operational. Not only did Dominion successfully manage safety and public access concerns, the construction manger also ensured noise didn't interfere with visitors' experiences at the park.

The scope of construction included an automotive storage garage in the lower level and complete parking and site upgrade for 1,300 stalls. Construction began in September 2006 on the infrastructure upgrade and the site redevelopment, including Gasoline Alley Transportation Exhibit Hall, Heritage Block Administration and Retail Building, and ancillary support buildings.
