BURNCO and the Calgary Tower’s Construction Crew Marks the Building’s 50th Anniversary

As we continue to celebrate Canada Day and its unique relationship with the 50th anniversary of the iconic Calgary Tower, we thought you may want to view a piece Global News presented last week featuring a group of the original construction crew. Most of the crew, now in their 80’s, gathered with dignitaries and city officials to mark the tower’s completion back in 1968.

The video features Ray Degagne who lead BURNCO’s team as we supplied the concrete for the massive $3.5 million undertaking.

“It was 24 hours a day. It never stopped… until it was at the top,” recalled Degagne.
