Kahanoff Centre Tenant Improvements

March 24, 2020

CANA was engaged to complete tenant fit-outs for the dance studios on the first six floors of Kahanoff Centre Two (also constructed by CANA). Later, CANA’s scope was increased to include offices on the upper six floors, as well as renovations to the existing Kahanoff Centre One building. Tenants on the upper six floors include The Calgary Foundation, Calgary Counselling Centre, Horizon Housing, Nature Conservancy and The United Way.


The dance studios for Decidedly Jazz Danceworks (DJD) feature a floating steel feature staircase, lobby, performance spaces, studios, offices and event area that were fit-out by CANA. DJD is pursuing LEED Gold for Commercial Interiors.

The upper six floors include another feature staircase between floors 11 and 12, offices, meeting rooms, kitchenettes and a main kitchen with high-end finishes.

CANA’s scope included flooring, paint, M&E and communications tie-ins, fixtures, milled ceiling details, masonry store, built-in millwork, feature glass partition walls and fixed and demountable partitions. Fit-outs were completed in a phased approach and turned over to the various tenants.


Renovations to Kahanoff Centre One included major renovations on the 10th floor where we completed selective demolition, fireproofing, complete M&E, flooring, lighting and other finishes. We also completed minor renovations where the existing Kahanoff Centre One tied in with the new Kahanoff Centre Two.
