This project was the first of two office towers to be built at River Landing – a new mixed-use development that is revitalizing an under-utilized area along the shores of the South Saskatchewan River.
The 13-storey tower is steel and concrete with prefabricated glass walls atop a two-level podium and 3.5 levels of underground parking. It links to the neighbouring No. 1 River Landing residential tower through a central public plaza.
The sustainable design achieved LEED Gold certification and boasts significant energy savings and greenhouse gas reduction of 21 per cent. Environmental considerations include high-performance glazing and high-efficiency mechanical and electrical systems.
Nutrien Tower is the tallest building in Saskatchewan at 87 meters and is the second tower built by Ledcor in the River Landing mixed-use development. The 18-storey, office building is LEED Gold certified. Amenities include a rooftop winter garden and patio, fitness centre, state-of-the-art conference facilities, and commercial retail units including restaurants and a café. The building’s innovative design utilized sloped glass exterior walls that improve visibility to prevent migratory bird strikes.
Despite inclement weather challenges, COVID-19 supply chain issues, and significant work scopes added during construction, our team completed the project 2.5 months earlier than initially scheduled.
