The Canalta Centre, formerly known as the Medicine Hat Regional Event Centre (MHREC), is home to the WHL Tigers and was the Alberta Construction Magazine People’s Choice Award Winner for 2015. The brand-new arena is over 190,000 sq. ft. with a seating capacity of approximately 7000, and meets all the requirements for a venue to host the Memorial Cup.
Modern Niagara provided all plumbing, HVAC, fire protection, and HVAC controls for this project. This includes high-efficiency condensing boilers, a Distech Controls System, an energy efficient design, and low-flow plumbing fixtures.
We significantly reduced the duration of rough-in by pre-fabricating all plumbing bathroom groups off site. This enabled us to meet a constrained construction schedule.
The building is targeting LEED-NC Silver certification.
