SURREY, B.C. — The City of Surrey has begun construction of a new sports complex in Cloverdale.
Located at 6336 177B St. the Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex will include two National Hockey League sized arena sheets of ice, seating for 400 spectators, multi-purpose and community rooms, officials’ rooms, change rooms and other amenities.
The project will also 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.
In July, it was announced Graham Construction and Engineering LP was awarded a $13.4 million contract to build complex.
“I am thrilled to see construction get underway on the Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex,” said Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum in a statement. “This new arena will not only provide additional ice to meet the needs of Cloverdale residents but will serve both city-wide and sport destination needs. Like all the Surrey Invests Capital Projects, this facility has been designed to high standards including important sustainability and accessibility features.”
