Riverview Recreation Complex

Following the completion of the facility’s schematic design, the final stage of design development is expected to occur. Design development includes all details and specifications required for construction, such as the interior and exterior finishes, elevations, code compliance and the building systems. Funds are also allocated for the recruitment of a construction management consultant to provide critical input into the facility’s design on general constructability, including building materials, cost controls, schedules, etc. The final portion of capital expenditures for this project will be used for site preparations and building footprint and envelope to ensure the project remains on schedule for a 2026 opening. 

The current spending plan assumes a funding commitment from both levels of government by March 2023.
