We also encourage fun and giving back to the community as part of our work. The ASC Social Club offers a variety of events both within and outside of work hours; past events have included picnics, hockey nights, football games, a barbeque at the Zoo, bowling and axe throwing. Each year we hold a month-long United Way campaign that includes a number of fun events and activities to get involved in while supporting our community.

We believe in giving back to the community in which we work and live. We are actively involved with the Calgary United Way. The Calgary United Way funds a range of programs and services in Calgary that provide individuals and families the opportunity to reach their potential and improve their quality of life. Each year, the ASC holds a month-long campaign to raise funds for the United Way and its programs. In past years campaign events have included volunteer opportunities, as well as fundraising events. In 2013, our campaign won the United Way's Spirit of Partnership Gold award and each year our contributions make a difference in the lives of other Calgarians.
We are located in Centennial Place, close to the picturesque Eau Claire District in Calgary. That means we're within walking distance of Prince's Island Park and have direct access to the downtown Calgary Plus 15 skyway system with its network of restaurants and shops. Our building has several amenities including an onsite fitness centre, bike parking with shower and locker facilities, full-service detailing and car wash, carpool parking and restaurants.
The interior design of the ASC maintains a balance between privacy and collaboration using architecture to bring people together while providing secure spaces for dedicated work and focus. One enjoyable aspect of the office is the bright, cheerful employee lounge called The Exchange that features two walls of windows looking out onto downtown Calgary and the Bow River.
As part of our care for the environment, we have several green initiatives including extensive recycling programs. In addition, certain ASC employees are members of Centennial Place's Green Team, a part of the building's sustainability program.
