Catholic Social Services

Red Deer, Alberta

To accommodate more programs, the existing Catholic Social Services building was demolished to construct a new 3-storey office building on the existing foundation. This striking and functional office building includes the following features:

  • Community connection hall,
  • Family counseling services,
  • Common meeting areas,
  • Wellness area in the basement,
  • Staff kitchen/dining,
  • Offices on the second and third floors,
  • 400 sq.m. of green roof terrace, and
  • Unique exterior elevation.

This project involved planning and relocation of departments during construction along with swing considerations to accommodate for future growth of the facility. Sustainable features included the green roof, energy-efficient windows, enhanced building envelope, and re-utilization of the existing foundation.

Construction of this project was completed in December, 2012. During the construction period, the staff of Catholic Social Services moved to a temporary home for which Berry Architecture provided space planning, renovation drawings, budgets, and moving coordination consultation.
