Elite Safety Services provides customized safety training and standby services throughout Western Canada. In the Fall of 2014 Excel Design and Construction approached ARCCADD Architecture Inc. to design a new facility for Elite Safety Services, who was rapidly outgrowing their existing building.
Elite Safety Services required a new 12,500 square foot facility to conduct their safety training programs and administrative functions. Some of the highlights include: a tower for fall arrest and rope access training, specialized rooms for drug/alcohol and fitness testing, large seminar spaces and a large break-out room.
The balance of the facility includes executive offices, a flexible open office area, a staff fitness room, a staff lunch room and a large reception area designed to accommodate circulation for both of the main program elements of the building.
Completed in June 2016, the new Elite Safety Services facility was one of the first in Manitoba to be certified under the new Manitoba Energy Code for Buildings.

The shipping container, front entrance feature has arrived on site at the Manitoba Trucking Association! Still in primer, this twenty two foot high sea can was designed to punctuate the front entrance, adding an element of verticality to the large one story volume:

The ARCCADD Architecture Inc. team members were given the challenge to build a model of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater out of LEGO. They were given sixty seconds with four inspiration images, then seven minutes to recreate the iconic home using only the LEGO from the LEGO Architecture Studio.
See the seamless transition between the interior and exterior spaces? Can’t you just feel the majesty of Bear Run as it meanders beneath the terraced house? Congrats to Julia for the winning build, as voted by the team!
This unseasonably mild Tuesday is begging for some beautiful residential trusses, wouldn’t you agree? Also a sneak peek of a custom home project. We are looking forward to featuring the finished product this coming spring.
In celebration of two years as a registered Architectural practice our team took some time to appreciate the exhibits and Architecture of The Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
