Canada Lands Company, a federal Crown corporation specializing in real estate and development, is developing a sustainable community in southwest Calgary, in an area formerly occupied by Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Calgary Currie Barracks. Once developed, the Currie development will be home to over 12,000 people, and includes parks, retail spaces and other amenities.
To service the area, the existing Crowchild Trail-Flanders Avenue Interchange needed to be upgraded to accommodate projected traffic volumes. In collaboration with the City of Calgary, which would take ownership of the interchange infrastructure following completion of construction, Canada Lands Company tendered the new Crowchild Trail-Flanders Avenue Interchange project as a design-build contract. Associated Engineering and Westpro (now a division of Pomerleau) were awarded the contract, bringing a collaborative, results-driven approach to the design-build process. The Westpro/Associated team began detailed design early in 2015. Demolition of the existing structure was completed in September 2015.
