This project is a conversion of a 1950s, 123-suite hotel into a transitional housing project for the Calgary Drop-In-Centre, a not-for-profit organization.
After the renovation, the building included close to 80 transitional apartments along with community rooms and a commercial CRU component for future tenants and businesses. The entire building received a new envelope including windows, roof, and insulated metal cladding. The interior was gutted and new mechanical, electrical and elevator systems were installed. The site work inclluded new services, community gardens and landscaping, and reconfiguration of the parking lot.
This project was five years in the making and was one of the largest projects the centre has ever undertaken. Chandos has been involved in some of the fundraising and through the Calgary Marathon our staff raised more than $10,000 to fund the project.Back to projects
