Peter Lougheed Centre



  • Peter Lougheed Centre, Calgary, Alberta – Emergency Response Facility


  • The Province of Alberta anticipated that it needed 2200 extra hospital beds to address the anticipated Covid -19 surge. Most of the additional hospital beds were addressed through the cancellation of elective surgery however the province needed to find additional space.


  • Sprung Structures recognized the immediate need and donated a 50’ wide by 165’ long Sprung structure to help ramp up capacity by adding 70 additional beds. With the help of Cana Construction, Falkbuilt, and Stantec, the Province of Alberta met their goal of achieving the additional capacity to fight Covid-19.


  • Delivery and Construction – 17 days for Sprung Structure
  • Total-time for exterior and interior – 22 days finished


What a fast-paced project! In 22 days, Alberta Health Services, Sprung Structures, and CANA Construction built a 67 patient bed Covid-19 pandemic response unit. This structure was erected at the Peter Lougheed Hospital in Calgary, Alberta.

Field Hospital at the Peter Lougheed Centre is complete. Toured by the Alberta Minister of Health.
