Acklands-Grainger Industrial Branch Facility

Acklands Grainger
Fort McMurray, Alberta
This Acklands Grainger Facility is one of the client's largest centers and includes both a branch office and distribution center. This design-build project consisted of a 20,000 sq. ft. split-level office, a show room, and an 80,000 sq. ft. warehouse with a multi-bay loading dock. The design included expansive curtain wall glazing and a 30 foot high exposed ceiling in the 3,000 sq. ft. showroom.

One of the key design features was the envelope, which utilized the Murox panel system by Canam Buildings. This pre-engineered load bearing system eliminated the need for structural elements around the building perimeter and is quick to install compared to other envelope systems. By using this system, the amount of usable interior space increased and the overall construction costs were reduced. As well, overall operations costs were reduced due to the system's increased thermal resistance.
