Construction to Begin on New Poirier Dry Floor Facility

by GS GS |

COQUITLAM, BC, Thursday, June 19, 2014 – Construction activities will officially begin next week on Coquitlam’s new Covered Dry Floor Facility.

Construction is expected to begin on June 23, and will continue until approximately the end of October.

The new $3.9 million facility will be located next to the existing Centennial Pavilion at the corner of Poirier Street and Winslow Avenue.

It will be more than 23,000 square feet, and will include a polished concrete floor, change rooms with washrooms as well as a public washroom.  The structure will be stretched fabric over aluminum framing, with protective metal cladding for the first eight feet.

When complete, this will be a multi-purpose facility for sports such as lacrosse, ball hockey and soccer, but it will also provide a space for community events such as craft markets.

During construction, one of the three parking lots for Dogwood Pavilion, adjacent to Winslow Avenue, will be partially closed to the public as it will be used for site construction management and equipment staging.

For more information on the facility, please visit www.coquitlam.ca/pdff. For information on booking the facility after completion, please email bookings@coquitlam.ca.
