The Control Administration Building (CAB) at the North West Redwater Partnership Sturgeon Refinery is a one-storey 6000 m2 facility with two main functions: to control of the overall operations of the plant and to house the administrative staff. The building operates 24 hours a day, year round. The CAB was designed to be a barrier-free facility and to provide an inviting, healthy and functional work environment to attract and retain employees. With its prominent location on site, the Control Administration Building plays a focal point to visually represent a holistic approach for a greener industrial plant. The project prioritized a functional, practical, and effective layout for the CAB, with sufficient daylight, and sought to strike the right balance between energy efficiency and ventilation. These factors, fresh air, optimal space conditioning and natural light all create a healthy work environment to enhance the well being of the workforce. The project also wanted to showcase quality finishes and workmanship, particularly in publicly accessed spaces.
