From Inuvik in the Arctic Circle to Invercargill… the jumping off point to the Antarctic,

from Haida Gwaii to the Maritimes… VDA designs around the globe.

Designing and building a community sports or recreation centre is extremely complex, specifically arena and aquatic centres must conform to many different regulatory body guidelines. To bring a project to a successful conclusion requires a consultant team that has the knowledge and experience to ensure that the facility will meet or exceed regulations and will receive the necessary approvals and permits. VDA is the most experienced aquatic facility designer in British Columbia, maybe even all of Canada, in successfully completing swimming pool facilities. Whether it’s a traditional concrete pool tank or a prefabricated wall and liner tank, VDA has the experience. We can assist the Owner in evaluating which approach best fits their needs as we have direct experience with all methods of construction.

Experience has shown that local presence has distinct advantages in large recreation projects. For many of our past projects VDA has assembled teams that address the diversity of the project and the needs of the local environment and community. This team approach addresses the complex nature of recreation development. The work calls for a variety of specialized skills and experience seldom found in a single firm and certainly not always local to each community.

The VDA architectural team approach establishes local Prime Consultancy representation together with the specific recreation design, delivery skills and experience necessary to ensure a successful project.
