GRANDVIEW HEIGHTS AQUATIC CENTRE

Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre is a world class recreational facility located in South Surrey, BC. Consisting of over 98,00 square feet of community space, GHAC features a 10 lane 50 m pool, a recreational pool with a waterslide, as well as a sauna and leading edge fitness centre. City planners envision this structure as the centre of new urban development in the region.

This world class aquatic centre features a unique roof structure composed of paired curved glulam beams up to 180-0 long suspended between post-tensioned concrete buttresses. The 116 paired beam assemblies, which ranged in length from 120-0 to 180-0 were installed in only 12 installation days over a 6 week period.
