SAHURI + Partners developed a wide range of revitalization and expansion concepts for the City of Brooks’ aging Lakeside Leisure Centre. This major retrofit and revitalization, completed in March 2005, created an exciting place to gather for the community and the region.
The original existing facilities were renovated and the entire complex modernized. The new feature elements consist of a leisure pool, competition pool, fitness facility, and multi-purpose spaces.
Along with these added amenities, the main focus of the project was the rejuvenation of the lobby, and development of a new central concourse creating a “social heart” and gathering place for the community, thus giving prominence to the building entry.
In 2015 SAHURI + Partners and Chandos were awarded the extensive Design-Build expansion of the JBS Canada Centre (formerly Lakeside Leisure Centre) in Brooks.
This project saw the addition of 100,000 sf. (9290 m2) that included a field house, and community branch public library to this dynamic facility.
Construction was completed February 2017.
