“The award, along with the earlier Calgary airport parkade project, establishes our growing expertise in fabricating precast parkade structures in Alberta and demonstrates the clear advantages of this mode of construction, including the speed of construction and low life cycle costs,” said Charles Phillips, Armtec’s president and chief executive in a news release. “In addition, the recent enhancements made to the division’s Calgary plant will make a valuable contribution to the success of this project.”
Con-Force, working with partners at the college, will also be responsible for first conceptualizing and preparing engineering drawings before actually commencing construction. The organization expects their portion of project to be completed by March 2010.
