Gold Winner: Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex

Urban Design & Architecture Design Awards 2023 has announced a Gold Award for Parkin’s Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex (WMRC), located in Waterloo, Ontario.

As architect of record for WMRC, (completed in 1993), Parkin is thrilled to have completed the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex Expansion project in September 2022. The two-storey expansion includes the Civic Front addition, a new gymnasium with support spaces, the renovation of existing multi-purpose and pool change room spaces, plus the new Community Pavilion connected via a new bridge to the existing complex.

The sustainability goals of the project included Savings by Design Grants, LEED Silver Shadow, and the City of Waterloo’s Green Policy. These initiatives focused on sustainable construction with the added goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption by up to 50 per cent less than the base code benchmark.
