John Ware Building

Calgary, Alberta

We are currently performing seven projects at SAIT for the restacking and program realignment of the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and Hospitality academic schools. The project is being delivered via Construction Management and involves taking the 1950s era John Ware building that currently hosts both schools and converting it to a Hospitality Faculty Building with an entirely new building envelope. The second part involves relocating the ICT programs to the Senator Burns Building and taking the Hospitality programs in that building and relocating them into the John Ware Building.

Both buildings are fully operational with ongoing classes so the work is being performed around a challenging timeline as the school is running at full capacity. Work has been strategically planned around Spring break, Winter break and day/night/weekends to accommodate the students. To achieve this aggressive and complex schedule detailed, phased moving plans and sequences were developed and shared with the schools and programs to ensure a seamless coordination.

The total value of the work for all of these projects is approximately $27M and all of the projects at SAIT are recycling over 74 percent of site waste.
