This 71,000 square foot steel frame building is comprised of a library, multi-purposes spaces, a fitness facility and a 12.5-metre-high competitive volleyball gymnasium. Construction included the development of the site to include asphalt access and parking, sports fields, outdoor play and leisure areas. The facility relies extensively on steel to facilitate two major architectural features – a wave wall and clear high spans.The facility was LEED® Gold Certified in February 2015.
Designed to simulate the motion of the farm fields that were common in the area until very recently, the ave wall is the first of its kind in Canada. On the west side of the complex, a line of 19 steel columns with tapered arms overlaid with wood glulam beams support the roof of the full- length entry corridor or promenade.
