IN RECENT YEARS, EDMONTON'S DOWNTOWN AREA has seen nearly $2-billion worth of new developments.

As a skilled tradesperson in the industry here, you’d literally be changing the face of an entire city. The transformation included the $340-million Royal Albert Museum, a $300-million office tower and the $606-million state-of-the-art Rogers Place arena with a pedway, an LRT connection and a community rink. By the time it’s all done, Edmonton will be one of the most modern cities in Canada. Check out the videos below.
