Work involved the construction of a new 74,000 square foot multi-use community centre, including a 24,000 square foot library and a 50,000 square foot YMCA. Both facilities are connected by a 3,000 square foot common entrance. A second phase of construction introduced a new skateboard park, play structure, and sports and recreation field. Construction was completed without interruption to surrounding facilities. The project was tendered under budget.

“Aquicon was excellent to work with throughout all stages of construction, and the two-year project was delivered in a timely manner on the expected budget.”

Brian Posavad, Vice President, YMCA of Hamilton/Burlington/Brantford

The YMCA accommodates an aquatics centre, mini-gym, health enhancement area, change rooms, multi-use areas and a child care centre to accommodate 10 toddlers and 24 pre-schoolers. Shared facilities include lobby, public washrooms, café, parking, pick-up and drop-off, and shipping and receiving.
