Location: Devon, Alberta
Project Value: $4.5 Million
Architecture | Tkalcic Bengert (Arch|TB) designed a community multiplex project for the residents of Devon as a major renovation to the Town of Devon’s existing Dale Fisher Arena. This renovation was intended to update the facility by improving the program aspects of the arena (larger change rooms, improved lobby and concession, etc) and also expanded the facility to accommodate future community recreation facility needs (such as an aquatics facility, two field houses and an additional ice arena). Arch|TB included an expanded lounge and future fitness facility in the phasing and multiplex concept.
As part of the design process of this facility, a broader strategic discussion took place as to how the development of recreation facilities can spur on both residential and commercial development if positioned properly in a community—a discussion that is pertinent to any community contemplating recreation facility development of any magnitude.
