Heritage Inn Hotel & Convention Centre, Saskatoon, SK

We provided structural consulting services for an addition to the existing lobby and porte cochere for the Heritage Inn Hotel & Convention Centre located near the John G Diefenbaker International Airport. This required us to provide design services for the foundation that presented unique challenges as the steel addition needed to be structurally tied to the existing concrete structure. We also provided engineering services on a large open architectural porte cochere featuring a cantilever overhang on all four sides. The final product is a striking and unique transformation sure to impress all visitors to our lovely city.

Cactus Club

The Cactus Club Restaurant is a Canadian chain and is now a hallmark of downtown Saskatoon.  The company hired us to assist Acton Ostrey Architects based out of Vancouver in taking their vision of an attractive and sophisticated structure from concept into reality.  We designed the full foundation including structural steel and the canopy for the enclosed patio where diners are able to enjoy the outdoors at any time of the year.  We were also required to provide specialist engineering services for some of the architectural components that make this building so distinctive, including providing design services for two large span structural tresses which served to accommodate an open concept structure.

Drift Sidewalk Café – 339 Avenue A North, Saskatoon, SK

REM designed the concrete foundation and wood/timber framing for an addition now comprising a 2-storey sidewalk café located near the Farmers Market in Saskatoon.  This project presented interesting design challenges including tying the wooden addition to the original clay tile building and extra design to increase lateral stability, a requirement for a building with many large windows.

North 48 Commercial Centre – 838 48th Street East, Saskatoon, SK

North 48 Commercial Centre is a large office complex constructed in 2008 in the north end of Saskatoon.  This 64,000 square foot building featuring a 3-storey centre core flanked by two 2-storey wings is comprised of a concrete pile and grade beam foundation and is framed with a steel structure.

Station 20 West, Saskatoon, SK

Station 20 West is a Community Enterprise Centre located on the west-side of Saskatoon.  This building, which opened in the fall of 2012 and was part of a larger neighbourhood revitalization provides spaces that ensure that core neighborhoods have access to services and amenities including a grocery store and various office spaces.

REM’s role included providing complete structural design consisting of a pile supported structural slab. Because the owner of the building is a nonprofit, the budget played a major role in the consideration of building element selection and played a role in our design strategy.  As an example, the building was constructed using wood framing instead of the typical steel framing.

Airport Building Move, Saskatoon, SK

Rempel Engineering designed a foundation/basement for this 350 ton building near the Saskatoon Airport which was being moved to make room for a new parkade.  Since the previous location did not have a basement, we advised the owner to add a basement to the new location to take advantage of the additional space it would provide.
