A technical case study featuring our ready mixed concrete research and development partner Quality Concrete. 


Ambassatours

Halifax’s Ambassatours is building a new 32, 0000 square foot building that will be their new corporate headquarters and serve as their bus depot. The building owner wanted to highlight green building practices and turned to CarbonCure as a cost-effective method to reduce the project’s environmental footprint.

Check out CBC’s recent feature on the use of
CarbonCure’s technology in the Ambassatours project.

The original idea to use CarbonCure’s technology in the project’s ready mixed concrete was presented by contractor B.D. Stevens. Luke Elliot, General Manager at B.D. Stevens, has been involved from the beginning of the project and in their hunt for green technologies found CarbonCure was a great fit for the project. The project used CarbonCure’s technology in its poured slab and tilt up panels. 

In an interview with the Halifax newspaper The Chronicle Herald, Dennis Campbell, CEO of Ambassatours, contributed the following,“We were told we’d be the first big building around here, and while normally we prefer not being guinea pigs, we did our research, and there have been various other projects with this infused concrete. We’ll just be the first big building in Canada with the product.”

home is taking shape in the recently published

Construction of the 17,000-square-foot service space is well under way and the project is on schedule to be finished in May 2016. Halifax commuters passing through the Windsor exchange can look toward the harbour to see the project’s progress over the next couple of months.
