During the massive flood Calgary experienced in 2013 one of the worst hit areas was Stampede park as it sits right at a low point on the Elbow River. As a result, many of the buildings in that area were devastated including the Saddledome Arena, home of the Calgary Flames Hockey Team. Over 30 million gallons of water flooded everything below ice level and the Flames organization needed help to get the building up and running as soon as possible. CANA Construction was given the task and they relied on the Spalding Team to help with the door, frame, and hardware scope. We had 69 days to restore custom size doors, frames, and specialty hardware to match the existing specifications.
Having supplied the original project Spalding had much of the information needed to hit the ground running and pulled a team together including our Hardware Consultants, Fire Door Assembly Inspectors, Door Specialists, Installers, and Shop personnel to come up with a plan to meet the near impossible schedule.
In the end we met the deadline and helped get the building operational for the first official event after the flood, the Eagles “come hell or high water” concert.
We'll be in touch soon.
