This project included expanding Northlands’ existing exhibition facility to a total of 520,000 sq.ft., making it Canada’s fourth largest exhibition venue and the largest in Western Canada. This expansion created additional exhibit, conference, and meeting space to serve and expand Northlands’ conference, trade and consumer show business.
In preparation for the new construction, the existing Sportex building was demolished. The new building houses administration offices, meeting rooms, a full commercial kitchen for convention catering and new loading facilities to accommodate the expanded trade show business. Additionally, there was extensive concrete site work to accommodate the K Days fair grounds. The design entailed a number of unique features including large single spans, high clear heights with steel abutting the existing structure.
Other interesting features were the acoustics and sound systems, determining the load points to accommodate the rigging systems, anchor and tie-down locations, hanging massive folding partitions, and the special lighting and dimming systems.
