Maxxam’s Environmental Services group is proud to sponsor the BLOOM Market Insight session on Redevelopment in Calgary on November 17, 2011. This important educational event is an extension of the award-winning brownfield seminar series: “Practical Workshops for Redevelopment in Canada”.
The Canadian Urban Institute recently recognized the Bloom Centre for Sustainability with the 2011 CUI Brownie Award for Excellence in Communications, Marketing, and Public Engagement for their spring 2011 brownfield series which was held in: Hamilton, Waterloo, Kingston, North Bay, Montreal and Edmonton. The series was sponsored by Maxxam, along with FCM, Golder Associates, the Ontario government, Hazco and XCG.
More than 600 people attended the original six workshops, with representation from more than 50 local governments and community groups. Each event focused on understanding local challenges and opportunities of Brownfield redevelopment, and actions required to move forward. They also provided excellent opportunities to network, share perspectives, and exchange knowledge and innovative ideas amongst the wide variety of impacted stakeholders.
The Canadian Urban Institute’s annual Brownie Awards program recognizes leadership, innovation and environmental sustainability in brownfields redevelopment across Canada. The Canadian Urban Institute presented the awards at its annual Brownfields Conference on October 4, 2011. The Canadian Urban Institute is committed to promoting awareness and an improved understanding of opportunities to regenerate urban sites and neighbourhoods.
