Ever since Standard General Inc. (SG) began operation, it has been a part of the growth story of Western Canada, and has involved in the construction of airports, railway terminal, regional highways and much of the City of Calgary. This included residential sub-divisions, lake communities, golf courses, commercial & industrial developments. Because SG is close to celebrating our 80th Anniversary, our list of key projects that defined our city is longer than our memories. Here are recent SG projects that will soon service our communities:
