Clark Builders Chosen as Construction Managers for the YCE Multiplex in Edson

Edson, Alberta, January 10, 2024 – Yellowhead County and the Town of Edson are moving ahead in 2024 with the construction plans for the Yellowhead County Edson (YCE) Multiplex located in Edson, Alberta.

Following a thorough evaluation process, Clark Builders, a renowned construction management and general contracting company, has been appointed the construction manager for this highly anticipated project, which includes a new pool, arena, and walking loop. The project also includes renovations to the Centennial Arena, repurposing the Memorial Arena to accommodate curling, and planning of potential space for a gymnasium.

The next stage of the project is to meld the ongoing schematic design work with construction management input that will include a cost analysis and constructability review. In September, the Town and County selected GEC Architecture to perform the architectural and design functions on the YCE Multi-plex project. Clark Builders will begin work with GEC Architecture, Town of Edson, and Yellowhead County on the schematic design of the YCE Multiplex. This will lay the groundwork for the construction planning during this important stage of the project.

“Edson Town Council is excited to see this important step forward. We have the team in place to ensure we get a facility that is focused on functionality and meeting the needs of our regional community. A lot of work has occurred in the last several months to get us to this milestone in the project. Town Council is firmly committed to getting this project complete as reflected in our Strategic Plan.”

“With this step of hiring an experienced and accomplished construction management team, we’re moving ahead to provide a modernized recreation hub for our regional community. Our residents will get a multiplex that will deliver a range of recreation services and promote healthy active living for current and new users.”

Yellowhead County Mayor, Wade Williams

Clark Builders’ extensive experience in constructing and renovating recreational facilities in Alberta, including the Camrose Aquatics Centre Expansion, the Beaumont Sports & Recreation Centre, and most recently the Yellowknife Aquatic Centre, set them apart from the competition. With a proven track record of delivering exceptional results, they are well-equipped to meet the unique challenges of the YCE Multiplex project.

With Clark Builders’ background in new builds and complex renovations, this construction management team is the perfect fit to set the course towards the final construction of this facility and bring the YCE Multiplex to life.
