The McCullough Centre in Gunn, Alberta, is a modern 17,200 sqft addiction treatment facility that is designed to provide long term recovery support for homeless men.
The facility is unique in its construction in that it allows for intake of clients while maintaining hygienic separation from the rest of the facility.
The site topography and relatively remote location presented a unique challenge in that the building could not be sprinklered, requiring the building to terrace across the site to maintain a single floor.
The structural engineering was also complicated by the use of multiple roof levels and canted walls across the building as well as the requirement for a structural slab overtop of the previous building’s footprint.
