Key Concrete is happy to announce one of our upcoming projects with Bird Construction Group. Key will be working with Bird on the new Canadian Blood Services distribution center in Calgary, AB. Set to open in 2020, the new facility on Barlow Trail will mean production, testing and distribution will be closer to major transportation routes than the current downtown location.
The new facility will feature:
- 153,000 square feet, gross square footage of the future operations facility;
- 21,600 square feet of production space;
- 18,000 square feet of testing space; and
- 28,100 square feet of warehousing, logistics and distribution space to deliver blood and blood products.
Key will be responsible for design, supply and installation of the insulated prestressed precast concrete wall panels in addition to precast concrete benches and wheel stops during the final landscaping phases of the project. The wall panels will use a combination of both white and grey concrete mixes, and will feature a customized form liner finish based on the original design intent of the Architect. Stay tuned for more information and pictures of this project as it progresses forward.
