This project entails a conversion of a 1950’s 123 suite hotel into a transitional housing project for the Calgary Drop-In-Centre, a not for profit organization. The project will consist of 79 transitional apartments along with community rooms and a commercial CRU component for future tenants and businesses. The entire building will receive a new envelope including windows, roof and insulated metal cladding. The entire interior will be gutted and new mechanical electrical and elevator systems will be installed. The site work involves new services, community gardens and landscaping and reconfiguration of the parking lot. The project has been 5 years in the making and will be one of the largest projects the DI has ever undertaken. Chandos has been involved in some of the fundraising and through the Calgary Marathon our staff ran we raised over $10,000 for the project.
