Architect picked for pool project

Hughes Condon Marler Architects will design Minoru Park's new pool, seniors centre and fire hall, Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie announced at a council meeting Monday.

"These projects represent critical needs for our growing and evolving city," he said in a statement. "We're delighted the project team is now in place to deliver on council's vision for these facilities."

The Vancouver-based firm won architectural and engineering service contracts totalling $6.5 million.

Its recent designs include the aquatic centre at Hillcrest Park in Vancouver and the Killarney Community Pool in Vancouver. In Richmond the firm designed the Hamilton Community Centre expansion and Fire Hall No. 2 in Steveston.

The $79.6-million combined pool and seniors centre building is planned for the area of the Minoru Pavilion, which turns 50 this year and will be demolished ahead of construction. A new $22.3-million Fire Hall No. 1 will be built simultaneously on an adjoining site.

Construction, which will be managed by Stuart Olson Dominion, is set to begin later this year. Both projects are scheduled for completion by mid-2017.

Also announced this week was the award of a design contract for the planned No. 3 Fire Hall in North Richmond. DGBK Architects will provide architectural and engineering services fro the $20.7 million facility at No. 4 and Cambie roads, which will provide a new home to the fire hall on Bridgeport Road and ambulance station.
