CANstruction® Calgary winners announced!

Well, another build day has come and gone and through all the beautiful chaos of building 11 amazing I-CAN-ic structures, we couldn’t be happier with the results.

AECOM Canada, Bishop Kidd Junior High School, The City of Calgary, Fluor, Lloyd’s Register Energy Canada Ltd., Nexen Energy ULC, PCL Construction Management, Sahuri & Partners Architects, Suncor Energy, Stantec and Urban Systems were all creative marvels at CANstruction Calgary 2015 and we can’t thank them enough for their enthusiastic and inspiring participation. The amount of time and planning that went into these pieces is truly colossal, and with all the food used in construction being donated to the Calgary Food Bank, we will do wonders for our clients and help our community.

Seeing the fruit of everyone’s labours standing boldly in Centre Court at Southcentre Mall in southeast Calgary is inspiring for us. Even onlookers were inspired to share their own Calgary Food Bank stories, struggles and hardships after looking long enough and the thousands of cans peppering the mall. You change lives. You impact people that will never get the chance to thank you.

And, now what you have been waiting for… The awards for this year’s Calgary CANstruction:

BEST USE OF LABELS - SOUPER MARIO'S CASTLE, STANTEC CONSULTING LTD.

BEST MEAL - MAYAN PYRAMID, AECOM

STRUCTURAL INGENUITY - PRIDE ROCK, FLUOR

BEST USE OF THEME - PARLIAMENT OF CANADA, SUNCOR ENERGY INC.

JUROR'S PICK - I"CAN"IC SADDLEDOME, NEXEN CNOOC LTD.

As many of you heard, we have picked a theme for next year already: Back to Nature. We will come up with a cleverer catch phrase a bit later, but at least that is announced so it’s official.

CANstruction will be up at Southcentre Mall, 100 Anderson Road SE, until March 26 so in case you haven’t had a chance to make it down to these amazingly engineered structures, you have another few days to drink in their splendor.

We would like to give a huge thanks to City Wide Towing for moving forklifts, Johnston Equipment for providing forklifts, Alberta Lift for providing sweat and labour, Southcentre Mall for the use of Centre Court and for taking good care of everyone’s babies/structures and to Fluor for sponsoring the event year after year.

Thank you to our volunteers for taking photos, being security for our builders and photographers. Our volunteers are the lifeblood of the Calgary Food Bank and we know we couldn’t have pulled this off without them.
