Consulting engineering companies won awards at the 2011 Masonry Design Awards of Alberta held on April 8 in Calgary. DIALOG won the top honour, the Presidential Award, for the Royal Canadian Pacific Railway Pavilion in Calgary. Inspired by a historic steel trestle bridge, the facility uses oversized heavy steel members to emulate the bridge, with large module limestone masonry to reflect the heavy nature of the Rocky Mountains. The limestone masonry is consistent with the existing train pavilion and sympathetic to the adjacent historic Paliser Hotel and Grain Exchange buildings which are clad in sandstone.

DIALOG also won an award of merit for the new Robbins Pavilion addition to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton. The 33,330-sq.m, six-storey structure is the largest addition to the hospital campus in a decade. NORR’s Calgary office won three awards in the multi-family residential category in the awards. They won an award of excellence for the Riverside Quays project, a 700-unit condominium on a former industrial site in Calgary’s Inglewood neighbourhood.  NORR also won an award of merit for the Five-West red-brick and limestone 26-storey towers, and third place honourable mention for Xenex, a 19-storey glass and brick residential tower.
