The large hotel complex was built to satisfy the needs of Shell Albian Camps, just south of Fort McMurray, Alberta. HIP was commissioned by Clark Builders to head their desgin group for the design/build contract that they won with their module enclosure partners Atco Structures. Clark was in charge of supplying the main supporting kernel.
It comprised a gym, a gym, a gym, a kitchen for 1000 people per session, a dinning room, common rooms, a theater, and various multimedia areas. It was designed as a two-storey construction to provide 15 additional footbridges to the various enclosures around the city. It was one of the main requirements of the project to make it as flexible as possible in order to allow as much pre-production as possible outside the construction site.
Shell and its suppliers supported this project, which has significantly enhanced the lives of the warehouse employees.
