Build Calgary

The City’s initiative manages growth through true collaboration.

Together, industry and The City are actively pursuing new solutions to ease the strain of infrastructure investment as Calgary grows. In 2014, The City of Calgary established Build Calgary, a collaborative initiative between multiple City business units and external stakeholders, including developers and builders.

Build Calgary has a critical mission to prioritize and meet the ever-changing demands of growth within our city by analyzing ideas for the most effective and efficient funding model. They’ve identified five key initiatives to undertake to maximize efficiencies.

In this video, the five key initiatives are explained by Joel Armitage, Director, Office of Land Servicing and Housing at The City of Calgary.
