CSCE Online Presentation: Calgary Cancer Centre - A World Class Facility
Date: September 17, 2020
Time: 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM - ONLINE
Located at the Foothills Medical Centre Campus. Anticipated to open in 2024, the new Calgary Cancer Centre will centralize treatment and care for cancer patients in southern Alberta. Symbolizing the type of care a patient can expect to receive, the design features two curving L-shaped forms that come together in an embrace surrounding an all-season exterior garden as the “heart”. The heart will provide year-round access and views to nature for patients and their families as they receive care and treatment. This is the second largest cancer treatment and research facility in North America and is located on the site of Alberta’s most important medical campus, in a key urban location in Calgary. The presentation will include an overview of the project and a discussion of the unique structural design challenges that were encountered as a result of the building’s distinctive geometry and use.
