Overview

Designed by Bing Thom Architects, this 30,000 sqft swimming pool addition onto the current Guildford Recreation Centre will provide training opportunities for swimming, water polo, and other aquatic sports as well as the capacity to host competitive swimming events. The specialty 95' long trusses made from CNC cut Laminated Strand Lumber panels were prefabricated and installed by our crews. The trusses are comprised structurally of glulam top and bottom chords, LSL webbing, and plywood deck. Inside the trusses are pre-installed mechanical ducts, sprinklers, up-lighting, and acoustic ceiling insulation. The trusses are designed particularly to enhance up-lighting, and built-in catwalks allow easy access.
