As the flagship train station for the city of Calgary, the Crowfoot LRT Station was awarded in three separate contracts: piling, grade beams, and platform. An additional superstructure included the piers for the steel pedestrian bridge. The main level consists of a 332-square-meter (3573-square-foot) cast-in-place structural slab and 880 square meters (9,472 square feet) of precast concrete platform slabs, which accommodates access to four train cars. The cast-in-place second floor is suspended from a one-of-a-kind space truss, the backbone and main focal point of this project. The station now services a number of communities in northwest Calgary and will be a city landmark for years to come.
The project included exterior precast platform slabs with the first cast-in-place tactile warning strips used in Calgary. The work space was very congested, and the City could not give PCL more room to work. In response, PCL managed the workforce and equipment flow in a unique and creative manner, all while maintaining a perfect safety record.
