Guildford Recreation Centre Aquatic Addition The Guildford Recreation Centre Aquatic Addition was designed as a destination aquatic facility for both recreation and therapeutic users. It offers a 50-meter FINA certified lap pool as well as a leisure pool that contains a therapeutic area, waterslide, family-friendly hot tub, and children’s area. The wood trusses for the natatorium, initially destined to be open web steel joists, were pre-assembled offsite and house the lighting and HVAC. This allowed for easier installation, reduced waste and cost, and time savings for the accelerated schedule set by the City of Surrey, the project owner. Applied Engineering Solutions provided design services including power distribution, lighting and lighting controls, and systems for fire alarm, communication and security. Electrical engineering design was of key importance to meet the competition lighting levels, as well as the architectural intent. Project owner/client: City of Surrey. Photo: Ema Peter.
