Grande Prairie Library

Alberta, Canada 

The new Grande Prairie Library in Grande Prairie, Alberta, opened in June 2009, and boasts 37,400 square-feet of space housing state-of-the-art technology and a quiet, light-filled atmosphere for book lovers to enjoy. In total, more than 10,000 square feet of glass were specified for the project, which was led by Teeple Architects of Toronto, contractor Wright Construction of Saskatchewan and glazing contractor All-West Northern Glass of Grande Prairie. To meet the deadlines and requirements of the project, AWG enlisted PFG Glass of Langley, British Columbia, to assist with IG production.

The Grande Prairie Library is a LEED Silver Certified project, and AWG is working on a few more projects hoping for the same aspiration of being LEED Certified.
