Location: 500 Centre St S, Calgary
Architect: Zeidler Partnership Architects, Foster + Partners
The design team brought together Zeidler and Foster and Partners and Canadian engineers in a cohesive group. This design uses high-speed express shuttles to serve from the ground level to the various sky lobby levels including the sky garden lobby.
The combination of high-speed express and low-speed local elevator groups leads to economies in the total vertical transportation plant.
KJA was involved in the design development phase, including simulations, custom elevator layouts, specifications, contract arrangements, drawing reviews and site inspections.
At the completion of the project, The Bow stood as the tallest building in Calgary and had the shortest average trips for a building of it’s size.
