Prior project experience includes several projects in the public & private sectors, representing a variety of building types.
Project experience was gained by Jayson while working for both Riddell Kurczaba & the University of Calgary (Facilities Development). Interior work was performed in all phases, including feasibility, design, drawing preparation, and contract administration. Projects ranged in scale from minor interior alterations to major multi-million dollar renovations. Projects below are a small sample and are presented to show breadth of experience and capability.
An $18M interior renovation, the first significant piece of an overall building renovation and repurposing effort for the second building to be built on the University of Calgary's main campus.
Several challenges existed with the renovation effort, namely the introduction of major construction to an occupied building, the location of the building essentially at the center of campus, limited access, and a tight budget. Issues arose during construction that required resolution - the new foundation required for the added exit stairs had to tied in to the original building foundation, additionally an original exterior canopy detail which caused water to leak into the building had to be addressed.
University of Calgary
completed September 2012
(Designed by HFKS)
This was a difficult interior renovation due to an extremely tight schedule. Challenges encountered included dealing with a custom lighting grid with integrated HVAC, lack of mortar in the existing cinder block corridor wall, and providing code required fire separation requirements while still allowing high visibility into the space.
Child Development Center
University of Calgary
original bldg completed 2008
(Designed by Kasian)
The Child Development Center was designed & constructed as a LEED-Platinum building to be occupied by various public & private entities with a mandate for providing child-related research & services. The building was 1/3 occupied when it opened and was subsequently fit-out over the next 4 years. Proposed designs were thoroughly reviewed for compliance with university design standards, while maintaining the integrity & intent of the credits achieved as part of the original LEED-Platinum submission.
