Medicine Hat Family Leisure Centre Expansion
The $29.4 million expansion project at Medicine Hat Family Leisure Centre (FLC) has enhanced this family-oriented multi-sport recreational facility into a central community hub.
The expansion includes a new field house with two multi-purpose indoor soccer pitches, a second-floor 200-metre indoor running track and gymnasium, a new recreational NHL-sized ice arena, expanded fitness and wellness areas, additional spectator seating for the existing 50-meter multi-purpose swimming pool, and upgraded administration areas. The facility’s design also incorporates the potential for further expansion.
AME’s project scope included HVAC, fire protection and plumbing design associated with the expansion and the refrigeration design for the new ice arena. Construction was phased to minimize any disruption to users of the facility.
The expanded Family Leisure Centre was completed on time and on budget, officially opening to the public in June 2016.
