Architectural firm DIALOG’s project Grande Prairie Regional Hospital got a healthcare engineering award for its occupant-focused design, utilizing open and inviting spaces, with deep daylight penetration and biophilic focus.
Vancouver House, a mixed-use residential and commercial tower at the centre of a new waterfront community in Vancouver, the Beach District, is among the five final projects contending to be the world’s most innovative tall building.
DIALOG’s plan for the River Valley Outdoor Activity Centre in Edmonton reveals reliance on heavy-timber construction in order to minimize its infrastructure’s embodied carbon, allowing the project to pursue Zero Carbon Building certification.
Construction firms EllisDon and DIALOG have received more than $550,000 from the Government of Canada to fund a study of hybridized mass timber materials, to be developed for achieving reduction in carbon emissions and expansion in building design possibilities.
Design firm DIALOG has developed a prototype design that could see hybrid mass timber towers sprouting in major cities and climbing as high as 105 storeys. The patent-pending design will also produce hybrid timber towers that are zero-carbon—a made-in-Canada solution to one of the world’s most pressing issues: climate change.
DIALOG and HOK have come together to create a world-class event centre for the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC). With the new venue, CMLC seeks to elevate the spectator, athlete, and performer experience in Calgary and build on the Rivers District Master Plan.
The carbon footprint of the design and construction industry reaches far beyond the boundaries of a single building or site. Due to various processes, ranging from the extraction of raw materials to manufacturing and installation of the construction materials, the impact of a single project includes both embodied carbon within the built environment and operational carbon generated throughout the life cycle of the structure. Embodied carbon is defined as the carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted during the full life cycle of a product from extraction (cradle) to the use and disposal phases (grave).
