The Guardian Calgary

The Guardian is a 44 story twin tower complex in Calgary, Alberta which currently stands as the tallest residential development in the City.  The towers are situated directly in the hub of one of the fastest growing areas in the City, just north of the Stampede Grounds in East Village.  Rieger Architectural Products supplied over 40,000 square feet of Alcotex aluminum composite panels (ACM) which give the project a very modern and resilient exterior skin.  The panels form a ventilated rain screen system with dry joints to act both functionally and aesthetically, giving the final installation crisp corners and transitions from all angles.  Three neutral shades were selected - DM1201 Silver, DM1209 Medium Bronze, and DM1101 Pure White.  The result is a clean, modern finish which will stand the test of time for the life of the building. 


Rieger Architectural Products is excited to have been a part of such a significant landmark in Calgary and looks forward to more exciting projects to come.
