Clifton House

Calgary, AB

Project Description

Building on our successful collaboration on Cambridge Manor, the Brenda Strafford Foundation and Clark Builders once again partnered for the construction of Clifton House—a unique community-based village designed for senior residents in Calgary.

Clifton House is a supportive living and long-term care facility that can accommodate 175 residents, offering specialized care for seniors, memory care residents, adults with delayed developmental challenges through the KINDD program, and individuals facing physical and/or memory challenges or chronic illnesses through the adult day program.

To bring this vision to life, our team engaged in a comprehensive three-year preconstruction phase, involving the phased removal and replacement of the existing Clifton Manor. Due to the economic impracticality of upgrading the old building, a new structure was deemed necessary.

The construction of Clifton House included a 1-storey parkade, with the southern half of the building comprising three-storey non-combustible construction, while the northern half features four-storey non-combustible construction utilizing steel, and concrete materials. Given the constrained site boundaries, the third-floor roof serves as an outdoor living space, maximizing the use of the available area.

Through fostering a strong sense of community and inclusivity, this project aims to create an 'Elder Friendly Community' in Forest Lawn, prioritizing the well-being of individuals from all backgrounds and abilities. Together, the Brenda Strafford Foundation, Clark Builders, and the local community are building a brighter future for seniors in Calgary.
