Ball Construction worked along side of lead Architect, CS&P Architects Inc., to complete this very complicated, 4-phased sports facility within a very tight timeframe.
The Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre has been Brantford’s primary sports and leisure facility for over 40 years and was in need of major changes to meet the growing community demands and to update the aging infrastructure. The new facility amenities include 4 NHL arenas, 65m and 25m leisure pools, hydro therapy pool, sauna and associated change rooms, gymnasium, fitness centre with fully equipped weight room, multi-purpose rooms and meeting rooms.
This large community hub and wellness centre also boasts a Sports Hall of Recognition, restaurant and pro-shop.
The phasing strategy had to maintain ongoing rink and pool activities while seamlessly transforming the entire program into a new facility. The new facility opened with rave reviews from the community.
