Another step forward for Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex
Surrey Council has approved another construction contract for the Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex.
Surrey, B.C. – Surrey Council has approved another construction contract for the Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex. During its Regular Council Meeting on Monday, Council approved a $16.9 million contract with Graham Construction and Engineering LP for the electrical, mechanical, ice plant refrigeration and elevator for the Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex.
"Seeing the Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex start to come to life is exciting,” said Mayor Brenda Locke. “I’m happy to see this latest contract approved as the facility’s construction continues, and as promised, staff are working hard to incorporate a third sheet of ice into the project’s design. Once complete, the new arena will increase Surrey’s overall ice capacity, while accommodating the need for an additional and long-overdue ice arena in Cloverdale.”
To date, Council has awarded three contracts to Graham Construction and Engineering LP in the amount of $25.6 million for the construction of early works, the pre-engineered metal building structure, the supply and installation of piles foundation, and for the civil, formwork, reinforcement steel and concrete supply.
Construction of the Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex began in August 2022. Along with new ice sheets, the project includes seating for 200 spectators per sheet, multi-purpose and community rooms, change rooms and other amenities. As part of the 2023 Five-Year (2023-2027) Financial Plan the Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex was increased from two National Hockey League sized arena sheets to three. Staff are working with the design team to amend the Project to include the third sheet and will be bringing forward a Corporate Report to Council for their consideration to authorize an increase to the design and construction this summer.
The new sports and recreation facility has been designed to be energy efficient and meet the highest standards for accessibility. When opened, the new ice sheets will offer various programs including ice hockey, figure skating, public lessons, skating sessions, and dry-floor summer use for sports such as a lacrosse and ball hockey. The Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex will be located at 6336 177B Street.
