University of Calgary Develops MacKimmie Complex and Professional Faculties Building Project

Published 6-16-2018

The University of Calgary is engaged in a multiyear construction and renovation of its campus core in Alberta, Canada. The MacKimmie Complex and Professional Faculties Building Project includes the complete renovation of an existing tower and block and the construction of a new atrium linking the two structures. The facilities will provide large classrooms, open study areas, and small group spaces to promote collaborative learning. The high-performance complex will be one of the first facilities to aim for the new Zero Carbon Building standard developed by the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC). DIALOG is providing design architecture, mechanical engineering, and landscape architecture for the project, which will feature visible energy modeling systems to act as a teaching tool for sustainability in the built environment. Renovation of the tower began in March of 2018 and will continue until September of 2019, when construction on the block and atrium will commence. Completion is expected in summer of 2022.
