This state-of-the-art complex was a joint venture initiative between the City of Camrose, Camrose County, the Alberta Government and the University of Alberta. The 550-seat theatre with gallery areas on the first and second floors features two sloped-floor levels overlooking a 2,700 sq.ft. stage. The facility also offers a multi-purpose room which seats 200, back of house facilities, green room, administration offices, public galleries and a rehearsal hall.
One of the most unique elements of this project is the 70 ft. fly tower crowned by an LED halo of light, self-performed by Clark Builders. It has the distinction of being the largest facility in Canada to integrate solar photovoltiac (PV) technology. The tower is clad with 488 solar PV modules and generates 122 DC kilowatts that convert to AC through the inverter systems. Additional sustainable features include: condensing boilers, upgraded building envelope, and high-efficiency chillers all of which fall within Green Globes certification parameters.
The Jeanne & Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre was recognized with the Sustainability Award at the 2015 Alberta Steel Design Awards, as well as the Best Institutional Project of less than $50M in Alberta and Best Project of the Year by Alberta Construction Magazine.
