The Kaye Edmonton Clinic charted new territory in the field of ambulatory care, teaching, and service delivery. A unique collaboration with Alberta Health Services and the University of Alberta, the vision was to create a state-of-the-art facility for patient and learning-centered care. DIALOG provided programming and master planning services, interior design in public spaces, base building, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and structural engineering in collaboration with partners. Kaye Edmonton Clinic brings together diagnostic imaging, a collection lab, surgical and transplant clinics, a sports medicine clinic, and Stollery Children's Hospital clinical services.

Point of Interest 01

The most prominent building feature is the curving, eight-storey glazed atrium wall. An open volume of over 10,000 cubic metres behind the atrium wall provides the public with views of southeast Edmonton and allows natural light to penetrate deep into the building. To create the open atrium space, the wall spans from the third level to the roof, a height of nearly 30 metres. The structural system is light and elegant in appearance, integrating the mechanical systems that are used to provide heating and cooling.
