Architect

Contractors
Aquicon Construction Co. Ltd.

Background
According to the City of Mississauga's Strategic Plan, one of the City's strategic goals is to build and maintain its infrastructure for its citizens for generations to come. Sound, functional and attractive buildings, facilities, roads, transit, public and open spaces are integral to completing our neighbourhoods as we build a City for the 21st century.

River Grove Community Centre was initially opened in September 1996, and has undergone minor repairs and renovations during the last 15 years. It currently is the highest facility for attendance in aquatic programs, membership, drop-in swim programs and rentals. It consists of 67,000 square feet which includes a pool, play pool/hot tub and pool slide, fitness studio with aerobic studio and squash courts, meeting rooms (large auditorium/gymnasium combination) and lobby space.

Objectives/Benefits
A number of factors have made the renovation of this facility a priority including expanding change room and fitness space as well as significant repair of mechanical systems.

The construction program includes a number of mechanical upgrades and enlarging change rooms and fitness facilities to address customer feedback and to meet the growing and changing needs of the community.

Once complete, residents will enjoy the use of a more comfortable and functional facility while the City also realizes the benefit of a more energy efficient facility that is more cost effective to operate.

Shut down is planned in July 2013 and the facility will open again when construction ends in July 2014.
