University of Ottawa 200 Lees Avenue Sports Field

Project Description

A new football field (14,000 m2) for the University of Ottawa c/w television quality lighting and scoreboard systems. The field also included electrical and mechanical infrastructure for an air supported dome to allow for year-round use. Approximately 2,000 m2 of the adjacent building was renovated to include new change rooms and washroom facilities.

Renovation of the existing building to suit the football program including locker rooms, washrooms, a physio facility, weight training and faculty offices and classrooms.

The challenges on this project were the very restricted site limits, environmental, MTO restrictions and site conditions in relation to the existing building renovation. The field required modifications to the existing building to be able to fit on this site. Coordination and planning was a critical task on this project.
