New Sports Complex at The Hershey Centre

Mississauga, Canada

This $35M international caliber sports complex was developed as a separate building to complement the award winning facilities of the adjacent Hershey Centre.  Designed as a multi-purpose facility to accommodate City-wide recreation programs and sports tournaments, its largest program component is a FIFA sized indoor soccer field with a 60 ft clear ceiling height.  Other major program spaces include a triple gymnasium; and a high performance competition level gymnastics facility for amateur and elite athletes.  The main entrance to the 3-storey building occurs at grade from the second floor, creating a spectator concourse level that boasts simultaneous views into the three major areas of play.  This central concourse also provides access to a Sports Hall of Fame gallery, community-meeting rooms, cafeteria, offices and participant change rooms on the lower level.  Exterior sports amenities include two artificial surface soccer fields and a washroom/change room building. (in joint venture with Parkin Architects Ltd.)
