Top Projects 2015: Canalta Centre

People's Choice Award

Alberta Construction Magazine held an online poll in early November asking readers to choose their favourite Top Projects submission, and nearly 2,000 votes were received. The winner, the $64.2-million Canalta Centre, is a multi-purpose event facility that will provide Medicine Hat residents with a modern venue for everything from hockey games to trade shows and concerts. The design of the centre—it sits partly in the hillside—was developed through PCL Construction’s efforts to engage the client during the request-for-proposals stage. The 18,077-square-metre facility was built to LEED Silver standards, and the builders recycled 62 per cent of the construction waste by weight.
