Aberdeen Hall – Athletics & Wellness Centre (Phase 6 Building)
The new Athletics + Wellness centre at Aberdeen Hall will be the final piece of the core campus build out. It is located directly between the Tennis Bubble and the Junior Hall and once complete will form part of the campus plaza, a public space in the centre all the core buildings offering a place for gathering and campus events. Entrances and access to the building have been strategically worked out to promote campus connectivity.
The Wellness Centre gymnasium is designed to accommodate a FIBA sized basketball court with a clear height to Volleyball Canada requirements. A mezzanine on the second floor allows for main court viewing on 3 sides. The gym is complimented by a weight room and flexible fitness studio on the second floor as well as Phys Ed department offices and ample storage. In addition, on the second floor the “west wing” of the project houses 4 classrooms.
The crowning jewel of the project is the roof deck which offers a partially landscaped public space that is an extension of the plaza. The stage and trellis area offer flexible event and teaching opportunities and the green roof ties into the campus; sustainability goals.
