Simons is occupying four levels for retail and the foundation level for logistics, administration and retail floor employees. With over 90,000 square feet of retail space, Midwest’s scope entails framing 150,000 linear feet of CFS and over 300,000 square feet of drywall to enclose the interior structure. Local architecture & interior design firm, McKinley Burkart, focused on highlighting the roots of the heritage building by incorporating its architecture while adding innovative and modern pieces.
“Govan Brown’s Safety Department is pleased to have worked with Midwest Group on the Simons job in the Calgary Downtown CORE. This job was very intricate in a lot of areas as the design was one that will speak for itself as you look around the space and observe areas of fine design and innovative architectural design. Govan Brown’s Safety Manager Ian Campbell is very pleased to have worked with a group of trade workers that took the time to ensure safety was a top level of concern while on the job. Rob Dunlop was very instrumental in ensuring the job was completed in a timely manner and all areas of safety were addressed when needed. Jeff Williams should be proud of his team and all workers that completed this project with “0” lost time incidents.”
