Sports complex upgrade

Our team was awarded the mandate to update and upgrade the Kingston military community sports & fitness complex. This base offers the Royal Military College of Canada's university-level athletic program, a military physical fitness program for the broader military community and the families of Kingston-based military personnel.

The existing complex needed an upgrade to meet current athletic, fitness, and recreational program requirements.

Our team performed the following work:

  • Renovated the existing gymnasium (2,700 m2) with a scaling wall, wood floor, and dividers
  • Added locker rooms, changing rooms, two saunas, and showers
  • Upgraded the existing weight room and cardio fitness equipment
  • Upgraded a multi-purpose room with a classroom, juice bar, storage areas, and offices
  • Built two indoor swimming pools, plus a wading pool, hot tub, and waterslide area
  • Landscaped a 183-vehicle parking lot

Our team also built a 4,500 m2 field house, including these features:

  • Scoreboard
  • 500 removable bleacher seats
  • 200-metre running track
  • Volleyball, tennis, and badminton courts
  • Long jump, high jump, and pole vaulting pits

All in all, the project was a huge success, meeting every requirement.
