Moose Jaw Multiplex

Moose Jaw is on the verge of building a new home for the Moose Jaw Warriors. Unfortunately costs have skyrocketed and has delayed the project. If they don't build it, they will lose their WHL franchise. There has been some debate of where to put it too, I'm hoping for downtown, obviously.

No attack against you, but odd that they would go out of province to choose a firm. But then again, I know nothing about trying to choose an architect. And even further, perhaps you guys are the best.

That's a fairly decent size rink given the size of Estevan and the level of their hockey.

we do lots of work in saskatchewan...there arent a huge number of architects in saskatchewan, particularily for special building types where previous experience is important.

one of the nicest buildings my firm has ever done is the mendel gallery in saskatoon.....we did casino regina too a while back....a spa in moose jaw.

i think this one came about becasue they saw the arena in dauphin for the kings and they wanted the same architect.

I'd assume that there are enough architects given the number of projects and population?

nope

179 architects in saskatchewan (pop. 1m)

350 architects in manitoba (pop. 1.17m)

saskatchewan building permits jan-nov 2006: 1,067.3b
manitoba building permits jan-nov 2006: 1,281.7b

saskatchewan is under represented in the field of architecture considering the population and the amount of construction.

Hah, that seems like a lot of architects to me.

I'd chalk it up to the fact that Manitoba has a Faculty of Architecture. Its been mentioned as a possible faculty addition at the U of R.

naw...manitoba's proportion is about the same as the other areas of the country...saskatchewan's is low for some reason....probably the lack of a larger urban centre.

So then, if we have a lack of any large Urban centres, then the number of architects we have is adequate.

Looks like a nice facility. Perhaps I overlooked this, but what is the planned capacity? And is that a running track around the seating?! I've never seen such a thing. Does anybody know of any examples of other sports facilities that incorporate such a feature?

its a pretty common feature these days...dauphin arena has one...estevan will have one....as well as another i cant really talk about in winnipeg.

small towns like it because it is a good feature to sell to community groups like seniors..makes it easier to fund raise.

We are currently constructing a new Arena Complex for Camrose Alberta's Junior Hockey Team the Camrose Kodiaks. It has a 3 lane running track around it also. Seating 2,500 plus, Upper deck seating, Skyboxes to Rexall Place standards, lounge that over looks the main arena in this building, fitness room, NHL sized change rooms and workout rooms, etc. This place has it all. Watch for it's opening this August 2007.
See City of Camrose Website for details and updates.

I recently attended a Warrior – Pats game at the Can. Although the old arena is a complete piece of shit, the atmosphere was outstanding. 3000 in the can kicks the crap out of any 6000+ Blade games I have been too (6000 at the CUC is less than half full). The new arena looks great btw.
