Maple Reinders was awarded the prestigious contract to provide construction services for the G8 Summit held in Kananaskis, Alberta in June 2002. A construction crew of 70 persons built the six different venues for the conference in just four and a half days. Two months of meticulous planning preceded site mobilization of the crew. The project’s focal point was the renovations to the conference centre at the Kananaskis Delta Lodge, including the leaders’ 2,500 sf Summit Room, 2,200 sf Leaders Lounge, 2,200 sf Sherpa’s Meeting Room for break out sessions, and the 700 sf Prime Minister’s office. Environmental considerations were also paramount to the project. Everything had to be recycled, re-used or stored for future projects. The entire project generated only one bin of garbage for disposal.
