Recreation Multi-Use Facility Update

Posted on

Work continues by the Town of Edson and Yellowhead County towards the construction of a Multi-Use Facility for the region.

On September 12, 2023, the Town and County selected Alberta-based GEC Architecture as the design firm for the architectural and design functions on the YCE Multiplex project. GEC Architecture is a renowned firm with a proven track record of excellence in designing and delivering state-of-the-art multiplex facilities, including complex renovation projects. The firm’s extensive experience and sustainable design approach make them an ideal firm for this project.

GEC has done considerable work along the Yellowhead highway with projects located in Spruce Grove, Hinton, Jasper, and Grande Cache and understand the challenges and opportunities working in our region presents.

GEC will immediately begin work with the Town and County on the schematic design of the YCE Multiplex, which includes a new pool and arena, repurposing of one arena to accommodate a curling rink and planning space for a gymnasium. The next milestone in the project will be the selection of a general contractor to lead construction.

This project represents a significant investment in both community’s future, and the town and county are excited to embark on this journey with GEC Architecture as the project design partner. The firm’s expertise, creativity, and commitment to excellence will help bring the vision for the YCE Multiplex to life.
