Projects

Featured Project: Elbow Park School

Overview

After the Alberta Floods of 2013, Dendera Electric was proud to participate in numerous recovery efforts in High River and Calgary. The Elbow Park School was badly damaged in the floods, and the basement and mechanical rooms were flooded causing terrible damage to the structure. The CBE and Alberta Education decided to build temporary modular classrooms at the Earl Grey site for students of Elbow Park School.

Dendera Electric constructed the entire electrical and communications infrastructure for the modular Elbow Park classrooms at the new site. This included installation and integration of:

  • 400 Amp Electrical Service
  • Electrical Rough in, Finishing and Tenant Fit-up
  • Freeze Protection
  • Fire Alarm
  • Public Address System
  • Network and Communications
  • Security System

Challenges:

All of Alberta watched the flood recovery, and this project had intense scrutiny from media, the public and politicians. The project required aggressive timelines to find a home for the 200 displaced students, equivalent to building an entire small school in a few short months.

While cooperating with other tradesmen and contractors at the site, Dendera managed to source all the specialized equipment on time, as well as provide all the specialized tradesmen to install and integrate the complex fire protection, PA, security, networking and communications systems.

Success

On January 6, 2014, students of Elbow Park School began attending their new classrooms constructed on the Earl Grey School Grounds.

From the planning, designing and implementation of site servicing aspects, we were able to streamline the work with the team at Dendera. Their dedication, costing control and staff experience were key in supplying an end product that was marvelled by the staff and School Boards alike. Tim Claughton, Enzo Developments

At Dendera, we are proud of our participation in the flood recovery efforts, and are likewise proud that our team did so while adhering to our values of Safety, Quality, Professionalism, Customer Service and Relationships.
