Graham was the Construction Manager for a portion of the 75-acre Ralph Klein Legacy Park, a regional park in southeast Calgary. The centerpiece of the park is its environmental education centre, which is constructed on 22-foot-high columns in the middle of a man-made lake. Designed with school field trips and Calgary citizens in mind, the facility delivers state-of-the-art environmental education programs with an emphasis on teaching and learning for a sustainable future. In addition to man-made wetlands, the park also includes learning gardens, wetland study stations, wetland viewing areas, an outdoor amphitheater, project area, interpretive trails, day use and group picnic shelters, and a waterfall. Graham was also responsible for hard landscaping, roads, parking areas, and service buildings. The centre is environmentally sustainable and designed to achieve LEED Gold.
