2014 Commercial Winner
This LEED Silver project includes 23,500 square feet of polished concrete. The unique joint development by the City of Edmonton and Edmonton Eskimo Football Club adds a multi-use recreation complex complete with swimming pool, gymnasium, and field house (indoor arena) to Edmonton, Alberta’s iconic Commonwealth Stadium. It involved master planning for the entire Commonwealth Stadium site to organize the stadium’s sports fields and the adjacent Clark Field with new public squares, walkways, and park landscaping.
Desco Coatings polished all of the main concrete walkway areas including concrete benches, some walls and columns, and the treads and risers of a featured staircase. The walls themselves proved to be an interesting challenge to patch, fill, and polish to match the floor. Various mock-ups and patching materials were tested to achieve a finish that met all of the project requirements.
