Burwood Distillery

Calgary, AB

Project Overview

Burwood Distillery is a multi-purpose building situated in the historic Currie Barracks in Calgary. The establishment comprises a distillery, a collaborative restaurant and a partner craft brewery, creating a unique space for events, education, and tasting experiences in the region. LRI’s involvement with the project began when the current distillery was just a vacant historical building. We provided code consulting and Alternative Solution work that facilitated the construction of the distillery and transformation into a multi-purpose building while simultaneously assessing the hazards associated with combining a distillery with other occupancy types. Risk-based assessment methods determined the required Fire and Life Safety features that needed to be incorporated into the design. The renovation transformed the initial structure into a single, jointly used building that included a distillery, brewery, bar and restaurant.
