An architect is in place to draw it, and now a general contractor has been named to build Vernon’s new Active Living Centre.
Vancouver-based Clark Builders has been chosen to provide general contractor services, joining the architectural firm of Group2 Architecture Interior Design Ltd., which has five offices across Canada.
Clark Builders offers proven experience and familiarity with IPD ideologies, methodologies, and mindset, with green construction experience. The Clark team will leverage experienced practitioners and net zero subject matter experts to deliver maximum value to the City of Vernon’s ALC project.
The Clark Builders team also takes pride in being a leading contractor of recreation facilities having completed more than 50 recreational projects in the last 20 years equaling nearly three million square feet.
“We are excited to be selected as the general contractor for the new Active Living Centre. Clark Builders is a community builder focused on maximizing value to owners through lean delivery practices,” said Scott Benoit, director, project development, for Clark. “We join with the City of Vernon in the work ahead to design and construct a facility that will enhance the well-being of citizens, the public, and communities.”
The city’s IPD team, recreation services staff, and representatives from Group2 Architects recently completed a facilities tour in the Lower Mainland to gain inspiration for the design process, learn from other facility operators’ successes and hear about what other communities would change about their facilities if they could.
A second tour of Alberta recreation facilities is being planned for the future and will include Clark Builders and other IPD partners.
