University of Calgary
Wright Dobell Architects Ltd.
CANA was the general contractor for this expansion to the Physical Education Building at the University of Calgary in 1987. This project included a large scope of work in order to develop the many amenities in this new facility. Amongst them were a new gymnasium, administrative offices, weight rooms, and racquet court facilities. A swimming pool and diving complex were also included and were designed to meet international and Olympic standards. All construction operations were conducted without interference of the day-to-day operations of adjacent facilities.
The Jack Simpson Gymnasium is named in honour of the late Jack Simpson, CANA’s founding president and owner.
We are best known for our unique and one-of-a-kind projects, but these projects are just some of many institutional, commercial, industrial, residential and infrastructure work that we complete.
