Designed by world-renowned architect Randall Stout and completed in 2010, this $88 million building features exquisite open concept windows highlighted by a distinctive stainless steel curtain wall with painted zinc components. The four-story renovation and addition to the existing gallery incorporates 7,900 m2
) of new space, a new entry lobby, great hall, and a multipurpose 150-seat auditorium, named Ledcor Theatre.
Constructed using innovative Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, Ledcor was able to use real-time dynamic modeling techniques, increasing productivity in design and construction. BIM technology creates a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a facility prior to construction. The resulting 3D model becomes a shared resource to support decision making from the earliest conceptual stages, through to design and construction.
The Art Gallery of Alberta was the recipient of Alberta Construction Magazine’s Top Project Award in 2009 for innovation in design, and named 2011 Project of the Year by Edmonton Construction Association. The Gallery also went on to win the 2011 Architectural Award at the 2011 Alberta Steel Design Awards of Excellence.
