I am doing some research on construction and remodeling and their effects on buildings with historic records. Do you guys know if Canada or Alberta have any regulations in place? I have already done all of my work on safety procedures in the construction setting and uncovered an error is delay timer usage, but now I am going to turn my focus to historical ethics and policies.

This isn't the right thread for the above question. Please ask again in "General Heritage Talk"

Here is the link back to the last posting regarding the Stampede expansion / Westbourne Church topic:

In the midst of the flooding, some news from the June 30 2013 Calgary Sun about the former Westbourne Baptist Church, which apparently was not severely impacted by flooding:

http://www.calgarysun.com/2013/06/30/ca ... -its-roots

“The Stampede is getting a chance to re-focus and start off the second century with a game-changing program.”

Once a development permit is granted early next year, construction on the $100-million Youth Campus on the eastern edge of the land should commence in 2015, said (Warren) Connell.

It’ll be another venue for the Calgary Arts Academy, incorporating historical buildings such as the 103-year-old Victory Outreach Church, which will be fashioned into a small recital hall.

“It’s acoustically designed already laid out perfectly,” said Connell.

“It’s a unique way to bridge the past with the future.”
