Optimizing a field of play
Thunder Bay Indoor Sports Facility needed a building solution that conveyed simplicity, clarity, and transparency. It also needed to have a connectivity in both in the facility layout and within the surrounding site context. For this project, our design did just that.
The 290-foot-wide pre-engineered frame system proposed for over the field of play provides an economic and optimized structural system solution. Better yet, it allows for a full FIFA compliant 101.5 metre by 68.5 metre field of play within a surrounding walking/jogging track, agility zone, with circulation and seating for spectators at field level. The administration, venue operations, athlete, coaches and spectator facilities have been organized within a simple bar building on two levels on the south side of the facility; the field of play level and a second level mezzanine. The entry and accommodation building on the south side of the facility has been designed in such a way that future developments would be an extension of the entry and circulation strategy and organization of this proposed phase of development.
To top it off, the entire Thunder Bay Indoor Sports Facility has been positioned to allow for new site development, allowing it to expand as the years go by. Up next? An indoor tennis centre.
