Built in 1983, the Talisman Centre is locally known as an iconic building on the Calgary, Alberta skyline. Owned by the City of Calgary and operated by Lindsey Park Sports Society, the Talisman Centre boasts more than just five full-sized gymnasiums for local residents.
The Crystal Pool, owned by the City of Victoria and built in 1969, has stood the test of time with minimal maintenance upgrades over its 45-year lifespan. This is in part due to the quality of design and also the quality of the original systems and equipment. Williams Engineering Canada (WEC) provided electrical and mechanical systems designs to modernize the aging aquatic centre.
WEC provided complete mechanical and electrical designs for the Dow Centennial Centre, which includes an ice arena; an indoor soccer pitch, complete with spectator area and locker/shower room; a raised running track; a fitness centre and gym complete with locker/shower facilities; a community auditorium and banquet room with kitchen, washrooms, and storage area; and a pottery and art studio.
Williams Engineering Canada (WEC) was the building envelope consultant for the modernization of G.H. Dawe Community Centre and Library for Red Deer Recreation Parks and Culture.

Williams Engineering Canada (WEC) was selected to provide mechanical, electrical and civil consulting engineering services to this $91 million facility. The building is targeting LEED® Silver certification as mandated by the City of Edmonton.
The $6.5-million Queen Elizabeth outdoor swimming pool is a completely new replacement of a historic but outdated aquatic facility that has served the residents and children of Edmonton since 1922. Williams Engineering Canada (WEC) was proud to provide electrical engineering services for this much anticipated summer outdoor recreation facility.
