TCPM managed the construction phase of the recreational multipurpose facility.  Designed by CEI Architects, the facility provided training facilities for VANOC Olympic volunteers and then converted to a unique Olympic legacy community facility.

The building has three multipurpose community rooms, a teen activity room, and a childminding area.  A main component of the project is a gymnasium that can accommodate basketball, volleyball, and badminton requirements.

A unique feature of the building includes design elements that portray winter sport themes.  The roof is shaped to mirror a ski jump ramp, the window placements create a pattern of athletes in motion, and the entry structure of the building is a glass ‘ice cube’ structure.

A 7,000 square foot roof deck was built to be used by community groups, recreation groups, and for child minding activities   As part of the project, high definition projectors were installed outside which projected artwork and movies against the side of the building during the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Construction completed in December of 2009.

The City of Surrey won the Wood WORKS – BC 2010 Community Leader Award for being an advocate of wood in its public buildings.
