General note

Modern Press building was built in 1927 but thoroughly renovated in 1947 to the art moderne style. Modern Press moved to a new premises in 1979.|The Saskatchewan government provided funding for the Atomic Energy Canada Ltd. Saskatoon office in 1993 and the Modern Press Building received a make-over to house the AECL. The tranformation resulted in awards for Heney Klypak Architect Ltd.: a 1994 Heritage Design Award, Sensitive Transformation of Modern Press Building to high technology design centre and the 1996 Premier's Award of Excellence in Design for AECL Centre. The redesign was also featured in a 1995 publication of AWARD Magazine. Unfortunately, in June 1996 AECL decided to close its Saskatoon office due to the restructuring resulting from federal funding cutbacks. Deputy Premier and Economic Development Minister Dwain Lingenfelter expressed his disappointment in a press release, June 27 1996, "since the province has made a significant contribution to AECL operations"
