By Sheldon Spackman

Officials with RDC took some time June 16th to celebrate the launch of this year’s edition of “Notebook”, the institution’s flagship alumni publication. Notebook – 2017, features local business success stories from RDC Alumni, including that of Cory Kaun, co-owner of Larkaun Homes and Ryan Smith, owner of Nexus Energy Technologies.

The event also highlighted some key initiatives currently underway at the College, including the Shaping our Future initiative, the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre/Centre des Jeux du Canada Gary W. Harris and the Paving our Future legacy walkway initiative.

Canada’s first ‘Passivhaus’ dealership!



The walls are going up for our new Subaru location here in Red Deer! We aren’t moving far but we are certainly moving up with Canada’s very first ‘Passivhaus‘ (Passive House) approach to a building. This style of architecture has a standard for having the most energy efficient buildings that diminish the ecological footprint, and allows for lower energy use.

Scott Subaru is working closely with SIA, an automotive manufacturer that has achieved zero landfill status. Using an already positioned building, SIA has strategically dismantled it piece by piece to save all parts for reuse and donation; such as, furniture was given to Habitat for Humanity, wires and cables salvaged for donation, and windows saved for use in the new build. It will be the most energy efficient dealership in Canada that will require very little energy use for heating and cooling, as it is designed to stay cooler in summer and hold heat in winter. With the use of solar panels, rainwater, and landscaping that is engineered to keep the building in pristine condition, the new Scott Subaru will be on its way to leading the industries standard in environmental sustainability.

We are so excited that this project is starting to show some bones and can’t wait to show you more progress as the weeks and months go by!

Game-Changer for the Automotive Industry!





We’re very pleased to announce the first of its kind in Red Deer, a sophisticated Service Drop-Off/Pick-up kiosk for AFTER HOURS. We are currently installing and testing it out and we will be opening it up to our customers very soon! We are going to be the first dealership group in the world to showcase this revolutionary technology. It will be a game-change in the automotive service industry. This amazing technology makes servicing your vehicle quicker and easier than ever before, and picking up your vehicle will no longer be restricted to dealership hours.

When you arrive at our kiosk, you will be prompted to check in using your email address, (you can even book an appointment right there on the kiosk). After confirming the services your vehicle will receive, you will be prompted to drop your keys in one of our twelve secure lock-boxes. That’s it! In 3 minutes or less, you’re all done!

When the work on your vehicle is completed, you’ll receive an SMS text and/or email notification, and within minutes, (with the built-in payment integration), you’ll be able to pay your bill and pick up your vehicle. Servicing your vehicle has never been easier!

Our Express Service Drop-off/Pick-up Kiosk is the first of its kind in Red Deer, and it’s going to re-shape the way you interact with our service department.

Follow us on Facebook to be notified when this Kiosk is open for use!
