General Services Building, University of Alberta

Edmonton, Alberta

Project Overview

EDA Collaborative Inc. provided assistance to the University of Alberta for the upgrading of the General Services Building Site.  The driving force behind this project was to the need to eliminate and existing parking lot and improve the air quality of the building by reduce car fumes entering in via the fresh air intakes.  The solution was to displace the parking area and create a plaza area with the addition of planting, a water feature and site furniture.  The resulting space now serves as an exterior amenity area for both student and faculty use.
