The Town of Oakville is redeveloping Oakville Arena and Trafalgar Park.
Starting Tuesday, April 3, the Trafalgar Park playground area will be closed to the public. See the service disruption notice for details.
Here is what you will see onsite over the next few weeks:
The final redevelopment plans approved by Council (pdf) on September 19, 2016 include:
A new fire hall will also be built on the corner of Kerr Street and Rebecca Street. It will include a Fire Education and Heritage Room with interactive displays, public education materials, historical artifacts along with a 1948 vintage pumper truck on display.
The total project budget including the fire hall is $41,044,000. The fire hall is expected to open in June of 2018 and the arena and community centre are scheduled to open in the fall of 2018 to coincide with the start of the ice season.
This project marks the first time the town is using an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach to design and construction.
The traditional approach is to first enter into a contract with the architect followed by a separate contract with the general contractor after the design is complete. For this project, the town hired Diamond Schmitt Architects Inc. and Graham Construction and Engineering as a team at the beginning of the project. Together, they will work collaboratively with the town through the design and construction phase to deliver the project on time and on budget.
