At their 12th annual Top Project Awards ceremony, the Glacier Skywalk was the judges’ pick for both the Under $50 Million Award and the Top Design Award, beating out nearly 20 finalists. In addition, the Glacier Skywalk received the first ever People’s Choice Award, chosen entirely by voters who represent the leaders in Alberta’s construction industry.
“We are very proud that the Glacier Skywalk has been recognized for its unique design and commitment to environmental sustainability” said Michael Hannan, President, Brewster Travel Canada. “We are delighted to accept these awards on behalf of all the partners, Canadian and international, who played a part in this incredible project.”
Alberta Construction Magazine highlighted the Glacier Skywalk’s remarkable cantilevered structure and specially selected materials, used to integrate the attraction with the natural environment visually and limit effects on the surrounding ecosystems.
The Glacier Skywalk is a new Canadian Rockies attraction that offers visitors a unique way to connect with the surrounding environment, through a 1500 ft interactive walkway and a thrilling glass-floored observation platform suspended 915 ft above the breathtaking Sunwapta Valley. The project was previously recognized on an international scale with a World Architecture Festival award.
