Community engagement included A&B utilizing multiple Indigenous-owned businesses as well as employment of 10 Featherstone Mentorship Program mentees, three of whom were from the Tsuu T’ina Nation and participated in and graduated from A&B’s Featherstone Mentorship Program. This resulted in over $710,000.00 in local community spend.
Challenges / Uniqueness: Extraordinary seasonal weather conditions for Calgary area during construction. Urban organizational requirements, coordination with other contractors tasked with completion of Southwest Calgary Ring Road provided coordination complexity.
