Project Background

The City of St. Albert is working on a revitalization/beautification project of the city’s downtown core. The downtown plays a vital role, enhancing both the community’s economic vitality and the quality of life for its residents. As part of one of the revitalization projects, the City realigned St. Anne Street by adding a roundabout.  The new structure plan called for a sidewalk guardrail that followed the circumference of the traffic circle. Artist Terolenn Mykitiuk was tasked with designing the public art piece of the project.  Her vision was to incorporate many of the city’s most recognizable historical landmarks into the panels of the pedestrian guardrail.

Project Approach

We were asked by our friends at Wilco Landscape to fabricate the stainless steel guardrail and make artist Terolenn Mykitiuk’s design of historical landmarks in St. Albert come to life within the panels. Excited to be a part of this project, we were confident this custom guardrail design was sure to set the space apart.  Due to the decorative nature and complexity of the details on the guardrail panels and the requirement to view the panel images from both sides, IMARK’s CNC laser was ideally suited for this job.  The laser-cut panels provided precise details of the historical images with a flawless finish.  Completed in stainless steel and finished off with a powder-coat finish, this guardrail should be able to withstand the elements without rust or decay resulting in a product that will be admired for years to come.
