    Nimmons Residence

    One of Calgary’s oldest homes built in 1898 by William Nimmons, once a ranch named 3 D Bar Ranch, is being moved to make way for a redevelopment project. William Nimmons also owned Nimmons Brickworks & Nimmons Sandstone quarry in which the beautiful 123 year old brick/stone work came from. This two and half storey, Queen Anne Style landmark of Bankview was designated a Registered Historic Resource by the province in 1978. Coming in at a staggering 400,000+ lbs this beautiful home was moved within the property, in 3 separate stages, in order to build an 84 unit rental. The building will eventually be used as commercial space and be around for another 100+ years.

    2013 Flood – High River, AB

    The government of Alberta stepped in and provided maps showing the flood way, flood fringe and overland flood areas based on the information gathered after the flood. Anyone living in the flood way would be offered a buy outs for their properties from the government to prevent this kind of devastation from happening age. Two neighbourhood in particular in the Town of High River where completely bought out by the government and were to be restored to their natural forms. The neighbourhood of Wallaceville in the NW area of High River was to be completely demolished as there were no buildings that where salvageable, however the neighbourhood of Beachwood would be a different story.

    Before & After


    This was a house that was located in SW Calgary that was set to be demolished in 2015. The house was to tall to move out of Calgary with the roof on, so part of the roof was cut off. The house was prepped and ready to be moved to it’s new location in the Town of Vulcan. McCann’s Building Movers then renovated the house, repaired the roof and got it ready to be sold.
