SURREY, B.C. — Graham Construction and Engineering LP has been awarded a $13.4 million contract to build the Cloverdale Sport and Ice Complex.
“I am happy to announce that construction of the Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex project will commence in August,” said Mayor Doug McCallum in a statement. “This much-needed facility increases Surrey’s overall ice capacity, while accommodating the need for additional ice arena in Cloverdale. Council recognizes the importance of providing opportunities for recreation and competitive play. That’s why we have invested $428 million through the ‘Surrey Invests’ Capital Program to build high quality facilities and amenities.”
The Cloverdale Sport and Ice Complex includes two National Hockey League sized arena sheets, seating for 200 spectators per sheet, multi-purpose and community rooms, meeting rooms, officials’ rooms, change rooms, and other amenities. The project will offer various programs including ice hockey, figure skating, public lessons, skating sessions and dry-floor summer use for sports, such as lacrosse and ball hockey.
The facility will be energy efficient and target the highest engineering and accessibility standards.
The project also includes a new extension to 177B Street south of 64 Avenue, upgrades and improvements to 62 Avenue and the existing parking lot opposite to the Agriplex building, as well as new parking for approximately 160 spaces to serve the new arena.
Construction will begin in August.
