We believe civil spaces must be accessible in their design, representative of their communities, and respectful of the public dollar.
Designing in the public’s best interest
IBI Group has successfully collaborated with all levels of government to design a wide breadth of sustainable buildings, spaces, and systems that serve all residents – including community centers, fire halls, city halls, and libraries.
Our role in municipal projects includes full life-cycle services, including researching, analyzing, planning, and designing roads, pathways, bridges, water/sewer mains, and industrial systems. We also lead public consultation efforts to gather valuable community input and support.
Few projects are viewed with closer scrutiny. We understand just how important it is to arrive on time and on budget, ensuring accountability and accordance with all policies and procedures required at the local level.

Calgary Fire Station 16 and Calgary Fire Department Headquarters
The Calgary Fire Department (CFD) engaged IBI Group to prepare a master plan for the existing department headquarters site, and provide a functional program study that addressed the department’s expansion needs. The outcome determined that construction of new facilities in addition to renovating existing structures would provide the best value and fit to accommodate the CFD’s current and future needs. IBI was subsequently engaged as civil engineer and architect.
