Within the City of Airdrie, known as “Alberta’s Friendliest City”, the services of CANA Utilities were retained to carry out the installation of shallow utilities, utilizing the FortisAlberta turnkey process.
CANA Utilities installed just under 800 lots in four separate projects over three years within this community. A combination of single family and multifamily sites were installed. The City of Airdrie has recently changed its standard shallow utility configuration to a four party design where power, telephone, cable TV and gas are constructed in the same trench. This design has proven to be more economical to the developer and the utility provider to help reduce the cost of the lot to the homeowner.
