Bonnie Doon Leisure Center – Facility Rehabilitation

Originally built in 1965, the Bonnie Doon Leisure Center is a community landmark and remains a functioning facility.

EDMONTON, AB

Over the service life of the building, many components of the original design either deteriorated, reached the end of their useful life, or were no longer Code compliant.

The full-scale facility rehabilitation involved various levels of upgrading to all areas of the building. This included architectural modifications to provide barrier-free access and alterations required for leisure center programming, mechanical and electrical system upgrades to achieve current code compliance and safety standards, and structural restoration of deteriorated cast-in-place and precast concrete items.

The project also included a new building envelope.

In addition, a conversion of the water treatment system to saltwater was included, requiring additional mechanical and electrical considerations and structural modifications to facilitate the saltwater system.

KEY CONSIDERATIONS

Challenge One

Completing a large-scale upgrade to an existing building requiring significant coordination amongst all parties. The conversion to a saltwater treatment system required replacing the skimmer system with a perimeter gutter drain that disrupted the pool deck load path.

Solution One

Two alternative structural support systems proposed for the gutter system and continuous collaboration with the client, facility operations, construction manager, consultants and architect to deliver the most feasible, cost effective and constructible solution.
