Banff Transit Shelter
Banff is a resort town located in The Rocky Mountains within Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. Known for its mountainous surroundings and hot springs, Banff is one of Canada’s most popular tourist destinations.
Having to adhere to the stringent requirements of the Banff design guidelines, as well as come up with a look and feel that was suitable for the surroundings, Lucid Management Group (LMG) designed, supplied and installed custom wood accented transit shelters. The shelters compliment their environment and provide a warm and eco-friendly environment for the riders of the Roam Public Transit service, which is provided by the Bow Valley Regional Transit Services Commission.
LMG’s wood accented transit shelters are professionally engineered and made from durable materials that are built to last. LMG is a recognized leader in designing and developing transit products, street furniture and wayfinding products.
Lucid Management Group (LMG) completed the design, supply and installation of Banff’s transit shelters in two phases.
The first phase of the project was for seven T-series wooden accented transit shelters at the following locations:
1 – 225 Banff Avenue, 2 – 212 Banff Avenue, 3 – 131 Banff Avenue, 4 – 108 Banff Avenue, 5 – 95 Banff Avenue, 6 – 501 Tunnel Mountain Road and 7 – 400 Spray Avenue
As with all of our transit shelters, the design is completely modular and engineered for any number of desired future expansions or add-ons. For example, down the road, if solar panels are desired, they could be incorporated into the roof substrate. Our pressure-fit mechanically-sealed design allow for any number of materials to be used, whether it be tempered glass or acrylic, natural lighting or energy efficient LED illumination. Our shelters are highly adaptable to the surrounding location and can be easily maintained.
We altered our T series shelters to suit the customer’s needs and added the wooden accent for design, creating a custom T series shelter that exceeded expectations.
LMG sent a team from our Richmond, BC office to oversee the assembly to ensure that the installation was trouble-free. Our supplied instruction manual simplified the assembly, allowing our on-site construction team of four people four days to complete.
The new shelters were completed December 2017.
The second phase of the wood accented station shelters for Banff Transit Hub were installed at Banff High School & Cascade Shops.
The second phase of two shelters were completed October, 2018.
