Project overview


Waterloo, ON






Silver Shadow


43,895 sq. ft.

Completion date



The expansion and renovation of the WMRC is more than just a construction project – it’s about creating a space that is welcoming, functional, and accessible to everyone in the community. The new gymnasium and support spaces were designed to meet the needs of athletes of all levels, while the renovated multi-purpose and pool change room spaces provide a comfortable and convenient experience for all users. But beyond functionality, the project is a reflection of the community’s values and identity, with each space within the WMRC designed uniquely to offer diverse experiences for its wide range of user groups.

Sustainability was a key consideration throughout the entire project. With Savings by Design grants, LEED Silver Shadow, and adhering to the City of Waterloo’s Green Policy, the WMRC is not only a functional and beautiful space but also an environmentally responsible one. By reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption by up to 50%, the WMRC is helping to create a more sustainable future for the community.
