EllisDon Corporation has won a silver award in the General Contractor $15 million to $45 million category for its work on the Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre (GHAC) in Surrey.
“It’s not a typical suburban swimming pool,” said project manager Gary Watt.
“It has a unique and complex design. For example, there are large buttress columns at either end of the building and an undulating roof form. Every part of the structure was like a custom build.”
Located at the intersection of 168th Street and 24th Avenue in South Surrey, the 94,180-square-foot facility is owned by the City of Surrey.
The aquatic centre has three levels: The basement, where the mechanical systems are located; the main level, where the swimming pools are situated; and a mezzanine, where there is a gymnasium and a viewing area for spectators.
