Construction company responsible for Calgary's new Central Library will build the Centre
Updated: Jul 30, 2019
The people who built Calgary's world-renowned Central Library will build its Centre for Child & Adolescent Mental Health.
Stuart Olson has been awarded the contract for construction management of this innovative facility, which will be located in Hounsfield Heights in northwest Calgary.
President and CEO David LeMay says his company is honoured to play such an important role in building a place that offers so much hope to kids and families in the community,
“We are committed to positively impacting the communities in which we operate and the lives we touch,” said LeMay.
“The Centre for Child & Adolescent Mental Health facility is a perfect example of a project that will do just that. Seeing the community come together and build something that will meaningfully touch the lives of so many families is something we will all be extremely proud of.”
Headquartered in Calgary, Stuart Olson is one of the largest construction services companies in Canada. Some of its recent projects include the Riddell Library & Learning Centre at Mount Royal University and the Central Library, which made BBC's list of top contemporary libraries in the world and the only Canadian project to make Architectural Digest's list of most anticipated buildings of 2018.
The project was completed on time and $10 million under budget, Mayor Naheed Nenshi said at the time of its opening in October 2018.
The Centre for Child & Adolescent Mental Health marks an important step forward in services for youth in our community.
The design has been informed by consultation with young people and families who need specialized support. Their insight helped shape the look and feel of the future 3200 m², three-storey facility, wholly dedicated to and purpose-built for them.
Construction will begin in the fall of 2019.
