YMCA Chilliwack Revitalization
To meet the needs of the growing community, the new and revitalized Chilliwack YMCA expands the original facility to 36,700 sq. ft., approximately 25% larger than the original facility.
A portion of the centre was demolished and replaced with a new two-storey addition and the remainder was seismically upgraded and renewed to improve this much used community amenity.
The new addition, a two-storey steel framed building, is connected to the existing building and provides additional seismic capacity.
The project features a new gymnasium, an expanded lobby and welcome area, five new multi-purpose rooms, new and upgraded fitness and conditioning studios, a pool upgrade, new family and universal change rooms, outdoor play space and additional amenity and community social space.
RJC provided structural engineering, as well as natatorium consulting services regarding renovations to the upgrade of the swimming pool.
