CBE Education Centre
BIM CBE Inc. c/o Bentall Investment Management LP
The CBE Education Centre included construction a 145,000 square feet, ten-storey office tower for the Calgary Board of Education. The Education Centre is linked by a pedestrian bridge to an adjacent two story conference centre that is a multi-purpose building. In addition to the office tower, there are three levels of underground parking to accommodate 360 cars, and restaurant and retail shops on the main floor along 8th Street S.W. A unique challenge that EllisDon faced is that the Calgary Board of Education required this education complex to incorporate the 100-year-old sandstone wood school, currently sitting on the site into the design, which needed to be done without disturbing the existing school. EllisDon completed the renovations to the exterior of the existing sandstone school and upgrades to the new mechanical and electrical systems. Now complete, the Safran Centre provides office space for the school board trustees. This new office building is connected to the historical school.
