The new Cloverdale Recreation Centre has earned a mention on Canadian Architecture magazine’s website for setting a new standard for community recreation facilities.

The $22.5 million facility “marks the modern renewal of Cloverdale and its iconic fairgrounds,” the item says, adding the building establishes the tone for the city’s future plans for the Cloverdale Fairgrounds site.

The project was completed on time and on budget by CEI Architecture, the article continues, adding it’s the first of six planned for the site by the City of Surrey.

“With this building in particular they wanted to make a real announcement about the fairgrounds and its design direction,” CEI Architecture partner Mark Hentze told the magazine.

“We were able to use expressive but economical wood forms to complete a very complex, high impact building.”

The new recreation centre, located at 6188 176 Street, held its grand opening in early May.

It contains two gymnasiums, 10,000 square foot fitness centre, multi-purpose rooms, and seniors centre, and offers programs for children, youth, adults, families and seniors.

CEI Architecture also designed the Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre.
