New Aquatic Centre Overview

UBC’s north end of campus has been under redevelopment for some time. In the last year construction has finished on the new trolley bus loop and the new SUB. Once completed, the new Aquatic Centre will aid in making one of the busiest sectors of campus a revitalized and modern hub of activity.

UBC Athletics and Recreation is taking the lead in planning the project with support from the architectural team of MacLennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects (MJMA) and Acton Ostry Architects. The new Aquatic Centre will be built on top of McInnes Field and will be one of the few facilities in Canada to have a high performance and recreational pool under the same roof. The Aquatic Centre will include:

  • a 50m competition pool,
  • a 25m recreational pool,
  • a leisure pool,
  • spectator seating,
  • a hot tub,
  • universal change rooms,
  • male and female change rooms,
  • a wet classroom,
  • and meeting rooms.

Once the new Aquatic Centre has opened, the current Aquatic Centre will be demolished and make way for the new site of McInnes Field. Take a look at the photos below and check out the Acton Ostry Architects site for more info and pictures.
