This STEM academy delivers an inspiring environment for hands on learning in science and technology. Consisting of the renovation of two existing buildings and the addition of a new structure, the facility provides the benchmark for the school district’s labs and classrooms.

AEP Span’s Box Rib® metal wall panel was used in the Vintage® finish to create texture and complementary shadow lines on this modern structure.

This 2,000 square foot modern residential home is designed to optimize living space for a family of four within the modest confines of inner suburban Calgary. Deploying a structural beam and post framed design, this home creates the feeling of space through an open-plan layout and high vaulted ceilings. Large windows on both floors accentuate the open, spacious feeling.
The extensive use of AEP Span’s standing seam metal cladding in Slate Gray adds texture and distinct shadow lines while contributing to the modern aesthetic. This versatile color enables the unique integration between roof and siding surfaces. The muted hue also complements and accentuates the use of natural stained wood leading to a cohesive, memorable design.

Opened in October 2019, 7 years after it was originally envisioned, this shelter is designed to provide a warm atmosphere for 65 dogs, 55 cats, and other small animals. As the facility is heavily trafficked and requires frequent cleaning, metal was an obvious choice to reduce Operations & Maintenance budget impacts.
AEP Span’s Nu-Wave® Corrugated was chosen for the siding, Design Span® hp for roofing, and Prestige Series® for the soffits to add visual interest, durability and for cost-effectiveness from both an environmental and capital cost perspective. This bright, modern color scheme blends well with the mixed-use of wood and brick to create a dramatic, contemporary design.
