SURREY, B.C. – Surrey City Council recently approved a $14.5 million contract to Graham Construction and Engineering for envelope and interior finishes for the Cloverdale Sport and Ice Complex.
Council previously awarded four other contracts totalling $42.5 million to Graham for construction of early works, pre-engineering of the ice complex’s metal building structure, supply and installation of piles foundation, civil, formwork, reinforcement steel, and concrete supply and the electrical, mechanical, ice plant refrigeration and elevator work.
“It’s exciting to see another contract approved for the Cloverdale Sport and Ice Complex. The first two of three ice sheets are expected to open in September 2024, with the third expected to be complete in the summer of 2027. This long-overdue destination sports complex will provide much-needed additional ice in Cloverdale and will be well used by so many families and athletes in our community,” Surrey Mayor Brenda Locke said in a statement.
Funding for the contract is available within the approved 2023 Five‐Year (2023‐2027) Financial Plan – Capital Program, a City of Surrey release stated.
Construction on the complex began in September 2022 and it includes 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.
