SAIT School of Construction, Architectural Technology Gala Night and Awards
April 22, 2016
Wood WORKS! Alberta is a proud supporter of the 2016 SAIT AT Capstone Project – Century Gardens Park.
The City of Calgary Parks Department challenged students with the re-design of an urban park at 8th Avenue and 8th Street SW downtown Calgary.
The material focus for their projects was heavy timber.
Their design needed to include an office, café, public washrooms and a +15 connection between two high-rise office buildings as an option. The brutalist style existing fountains had to be maintained.
Jerry Calara, Technical Advisor with Wood WORKS! Alberta was in attendance and presented prizes to the three winning teams:
|First Place: Team 3 – $1000.00
|Second Place: Team 8 – $ 700.00
|Third Place: Team 5 – $ 300.00
Wood WORKS! Alberta congratulates all of the award recipients. A special thank you is also extended to SAIT instructor Janos Dvorzsak for spearheading this great event and including us as sponsors.
