QM Environmental was selected to complete the abatement and demolition of a 23-storey high rise building near downtown Calgary, surrounded on all sides by residential areas and high traffic road ways.
The building, formerly referred to as Owasina Hall, was a SAIT landmark for over 40 years, though it stopped functioning as a residence in 2006. In its most recent years, the building served as a tactical training ground for Calgary Police Services, with its significant height offering an excellent location for rappelling drills.
QM utilized an integrated services approach that combined our demolition and hazardous materials abatement teams to execute the work. Upon mobilization, eight mast climbers were installed to gain access to all sides of the building reaching the full height of the building (+200 feet).
