View all Projects » City of Ottawa: Ray Friel Centre Twin Arena Expansion
New Construction - Government Public Facilities & Military

The project involved the construction of a new long span high-bay facility that housed two arenas that were connected to a 2-storey office and recreational facility. A portion of the existing Ray Friel Centre was also demolished and reconstructed to allow for the creation of a new 2-storey atrium. The project had several challenges, including the connection of the conventionally framed 2-storey steel framed office component to the pre-fabricated component. In addition, as the project was a 3-P/design build, a good relationship with the contractor and owners was imperative to ensure that the project was completed on time and on budget.
