The new Timms Community Centre’s connection to the existing City Hall and Library building allows greater service integration, creates efficiencies through shared use of resources, and improves access for clients through a ‘one stop shop’ approach to service delivery.

The facility is approximately 35,000 square feet including a fitness centre, weight room, games room, a youth centre, an interior running track, and a regulation size gymansium designed for intramural activities.  Significant renovation work to the existing library and city hall spaces was required to integrate the facility.

To achieve the best value for the City, TCPM structured the design-build RFP carefully to leverage the Proponents creativity and competitive spirit.  This approach resulted in the City receiving significantly more scope and value than originally anticipated.
