The Banff Gondola Wins Two Top Project Awards
Brewster Travel Canada announced today that the Banff Gondola redevelopment project has been honoured with two Top Project Awards from Alberta Construction Magazine. The Banff Gondola’s winning categories include the People’s Choice Award and the Commercial Award (Under $50 Million).
The $26 million redevelopment project, located at the top of Sulphur Mountain in Banff National Park, took several years of planning and approximately 13 months of construction to complete. Brewster Travel Canada partnered with PCL Construction Management Inc., DIALOG, Entuitive, Mulvey + Banani International (Alberta) Inc., and GES for the redevelopment project. The new facility was built on the existing structure, allowing for the environmental footprint to remain unchanged. The facility at the top of Sulphur Mountain had not seen an extensive renovation since the late 1980s and has been retrofitted with energy-efficient technologies and now boasts a state-of-the-art interpretive floor, all-new food and beverage offerings, a roof-top observation deck and theatre.
“We are honoured to receive these two prestigious awards which recognize the hard work that the entire project team put into the new mountaintop experience at the Banff Gondola,” said Dave McKenna, President of Brewster Travel Canada. “Creating a world-class facility on the top of a mountain took incredible teamwork, innovation and superior environmental stewardship, and we couldn’t be more proud.”
Brewster Travel Canada officially cut the ribbon to this state-of-the-art facility in October 2016.
This adds to the collection of accolades that Brewster Travel Canada has received from Alberta Construction Magazine for project excellence. In 2013, the newly-built Glacier Skywalk won the Commercial Award (Under $50 Million), the Top Design Award, and received the first ever People’s Choice Award, chosen entirely by voters.
