Cineplex Inc. is Canada’s dominant exhibitor with a 78% market share but the company is continuing to diversify to lessen its dependence on the Hollywood studios.

Its latest initiative is the Rec Room, a vast entertainment facility which encompasses restaurants, a sports bar, gaming, live acts, a bowling alley, pool, air hockey, table tennis and axe-throwing.

The prototype opened in the South Edmonton Common mall in Edmonton, Alberta last September, four more locations are being built and the plan is to expand to 10-15 centers, each occupying 40,000-60,000 square feet, in the next four to five years. In addition, the company is looking to create a smaller box version for mid-sized markets, with 10-15 across the country, which will have a different brand yet to be revealed. (more…)

When the outdated and burned out signs at an Investors Group location in Barrie, Ontario​ needed replacing they called LED Solutions, Canada’s national LED signage specialists.

LED Solutions worked within Investors Group‘s budget and time frame and refreshed 3 out-of-date, power hungry neon signs by replacing them with all new channel letters signs with super bright. high efficiency LED modules.

The LED modules that come standard in every LED Solution sign project are top of the line, commercial grade and are guaranteed maintenance free for 5 years.

Check out some of the before and after pictures…

Holcim is one of the world’s leading suppliers of cement and aggregates. We had an opportunity to work with them on a test project for their newly developed Pervious Concrete near lake shore Mississauga. We built the sign – pictured above with the then Mayor Hazel McCallion – which contains a demonstration of the concrete and how it allows water to run through it. With just a press of the button, you can see how pervious concrete allows water to percolate through itself and to the soil. The sign explains well how Pervious concrete works:

This pervious parking lot and walkway built by Holcim provides an innovative, sustainable solution to the stormwater problem. The rush of stormwater after heavy rains poses an environmental challenge in urban areas blanketed by hard surfaces.

As stormwater runs over roofs, roads and parking lots water picks up impurities that find their way into storm sewers, local  creeks  rivers and wetlands. Pervious concrete puts rainwater back in the ground where it belongs and also reduces the need for retention ponds, swales, and other stormwater management devices.

Pervious concrete is significantly more porous than traditional concrete. It contains less sand and more air, allowing water to percolate through and into the soil where it is naturally filtered helping to replenish the ground water supply.
