We are thrilled to receive this award for MEC Edmonton Brewery District in Edmonton!
WOOD WORKS! Alberta / the Canadian Wood Council jury provided these comments on the building:
“Wood was used for structural and accent finishing pieces and the jury felt that this choice makes the project stand out. It is going above and beyond in a retail experience when customers are allowed to approach and interact with the wood. The entry canopy is impressive, the proportions of wood make a nice warm entry to the building, especially the wood doors. A wide variety of materials were used: glulam columns, timber clad canopies, CLT changing rooms. The structure is thoughtfully oriented to the south and will get the natural light bouncing off the wood surfaces.”
It is great to add this new award to our office and we look forward to submitting future projects.
