Ladner Leisure Centre Receives Award for Outstanding Facility

Jul 16, 2015

The Corporation of Delta is proud to receive the Bill Woycik Memorial Award for Outstanding Facility for the improved Ladner Leisure Centre. Presented by the Recreational Facilities Association of BC, the award is given annually to one outstanding new or improved facility in the province.

On February 20, 2014, a portion of the Ladner Leisure Centre east wall stucco façade detached from the arena steel structure. Delta staff swiftly created a plan to complete upgrades to ensure the safety and stability of the building into the future.

Delta's Major Civic Building Committee considered a variety of options for the retrofit project that would be economical, environmentally sustainable and efficient in construction. Staff used the renovation work as an opportunity to further enhance the facility with improvements including installation of an air barrier and new dehumidifiers, as well as a new CycleFit studio.

The improved facility was officially opened in February 2015, and Delta is pleased Ladner Leisure Centre is now recognized as an Outstanding Facility in British Columbia.
