Recognition Display - achievement and honor wall
Few private clubs in Canada can match the profile, stature and tradition of the venerable Glencoe Club in Calgary, Alberta. Located between the prestigious communities of Mount Royal and Elbow Park, five minutes from downtown Calgary, the multi-facility, family-oriented club has grown from its origins as a curling, skating and badminton club over 70 years ago, to become one of North America's finest sports and social clubs.
One aspect of the Club’s history has been the involvement by many of its members in various winter and summer Olympics events, either as competitors, officials or volunteers. That participation prompted the Club to develop a unique recognition display that would honor those members in a tasteful and distinguished way while also complimenting the refined atmosphere of the Club. The Club selected Planned Legacy to design and fabricate a display that showcased individual Olympic achievements while also enabling easy and convenient updating of information and honoree profiles.
Working in collaboration with Glencoe Club management, Planned Legacy created an innovative presentation that highlights featured members with laminated tiles that incorporate inset photos and text captions in a contemporary design. The individual tiles are placed over a larger generic photomural showing multiple Olympic-oriented images of miscellaneous competitions.
Accenting the recognition display are tempered 6 ml glass panels treated with color graphic lettering at each end. One panel features a listing of summer and winter Olympic cities at which Glencoe members have participated. The other panel features a Statement of Appreciation honoring the commitment and spirit of the respective Glencoe members. Each glass panel is supported with stainless steel standoffs.
The entire display is 21’ wide and almost 9’ high and was fabricated using glass, solid oak, oak veneer and metal highlights.
