Masterplan for the Athletic Complex Ridley College

Project Summary

  • Client: Ridley College
  • Design and Construction Admin Budget: $40.0 Million
  • Date: 2008
  • Program: ,

Ridley College engaged Quartek Group Inc. to develop a master plan for the Athletic Complex. Quartek Group Inc. worked with the Management and Board of the College to develop a vision which incorporated as many of the long-range goals as possible while proposing a realistic capital budget for the project.

Quartek Group Inc. undertook a design and computer-modeling/animation task for the proposed new facilities to create a tangible concept that could be viewed in a video format to show the board, faculty, students and potential donors a vision for their future new sports complex and how it might look in context with the existing campus. The proposed facilities included a gymnasium, swimming pool, field house, and arena.

The NHL-sized arena has been constructed and was valued at $10 million in construction cost and was designed using the criteria of the Green Building Council of Canada’s LEED standards at a silver level. As a multi-disciplinary firm, Quartek was able to provide a full range of planning; structural, civil, mechanical and electrical engineering; architectural, interior design, and project management services to this project, including construction administration and field review.
