About Stantec Tower in Edmonton, Alberta
Stantec Tower Edmonton is a prominent landmark in the heart of downtown. The 53-storey skyscraper was designed by architectural firm Dialog and opened in 2017. Spanning an impressive 297 meters, it is Canada’s tallest office building outside of Ontario and Quebec. Stantec Tower houses offices for many leading businesses as well as retail spaces and restaurants at street level. It boasts a unique four-storey ‘sky garden’ on its top floor, offering stunning views of the city skyline from above. Its green roof helps to minimize energy costs and reduce the environmental footprint of the building. Stantec Tower has quickly become an iconic destination for locals, workers and visitors alike, making it one of the most recognizable landmarks in Edmonton

Arpi’s North Building Information Modeling
Arpi’s North utilizes Building Information Modeling (BIM) a revolutionary technology that has drastically changed the way buildings are designed, managed and constructed. BIM is a 3D modeling process that allows architects, engineers, contractors and others to collaborate in real-time on the same digital platform. This new approach enables those involved in construction projects to easily access up-to-date information about each aspect of their project – from design plans to material inventories – which can significantly reduce costs and timelines for completion. With BIM, teams have more visibility into their project’s progression, allowing them to make better decisions faster. Additionally, BIM saves time by simplifying coordination between different departments as well as streamlining communication across all disciplines involved in the building process.
As the technology continues to evolve, its potential applications are only increasing. BIM can be used for a variety of purposes such as energy analysis, sustainability assessment and automated facility management. It also provides an invaluable tool for construction site visualization which allows teams to identify problems quickly and accurately. Ultimately, BIM is revolutionizing the building industry by providing greater insight into each part of the project, improving efficiency and enabling faster completion times.
