Fast + Epp
Surrey, British Columbia
The Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre was constructed to meet the needs of a diverse population. It features an undulating roof structure with hanging timber ‘cables’, suspended between large concrete buttresses. While hanging systems have historically used steel cables, Fast + Epp’s engineering team chose wood as a cost-effective, structurally-efficient and aesthetically-pleasing alternative. The structure’s clever balance of form and function fulfills the client’s desire for an iconic building that will be a catalyst for civic growth.
