The vertical expansion of the existing Sally Borden Building was the first component of the four phased Campus Redevelopment at the Banff Centre. This specific project involved a complicated, two level expansion of an existing, multi-purpose recreational complex near the centre of the campus. The project was completed in three phase over a period of 20 months; the first phase included significant structural upgrades from below basement level footings through two levels of operational space and up through the roof. Phase two included the addition of 20,000 square feet of space that houses a primary banquet kitchen, staff cafeteria and change rooms, two restaurants (400 seats total), a 35 seat wine bar and significant cooking and food display spaces. The final phase of the project included a new elevator/stair tower and significant exterior and landscape upgrades.
