Relationship management and construction excellence continues to drive Graham’s pursuit successes! The Edmonton Buildings team was recently awarded the CDN$200 million contract to deliver the Block BG project, located in Edmonton’s ICE District.

ICE District is located in the heart of downtown Edmonton, and will be Canada’s largest mixed-use sports, entertainment, retail, residential and office area. The newest addition to the 25-acre development, Block BG will be a 43-storey, mixed-use tower. The space includes 568 residential suites, totaling 46,452 m2 (500,000 sq. ft.), a rooftop park, and a three-level retail podium totaling 23,225 m2 (250,000 sq. ft.), complete with grocery store, Cineplex theatre, sports bar, and boutique retailers.

Graham’s ability to complete high quality projects on-budget and ahead of schedule, in addition to the team’s methodical and thoughtful approach to project delivery, confirmed our expertise in this sector, securing the award.

Construction on this project is expected to commence in December 2017, with an anticipated completion date of April 2020.
