In 2016, WalterFedy completed a Master Plan for the University of Waterloo to review potential long-term development of the existing Columbia Ice Fields facility. Our team reviewed the existing functional deficiencies and produced a concept that includes a field house, indoor running track, ice rink, and swimming pool with associated support spaces including an open air stadia, retail, concessions, and sports medicine facility.
In 2019, The University of Waterloo opened the $1.5 million multi-function field turf building as a first step in realizing this ambitious Master Plan. Designed by WalterFedy’s architecture and engineering teams, the field house will provide a space for students to participate in recreational sports as well as the school’s varsity teams to train and practice.
