The new Strathearn Community Hall is a building we’ll all be able to be proud of. The hall was designed from the ground up to meet the unique needs and vision of our community. It will be a place to meet with your neighbours, enjoy activities or just admire as you walk by.
Construction will start in spring 2017 and will be finished in December.
Hall Construction Update
Construction on the new hall is making a visible difference in Silver Heights Park! Notably absent earlier this summer, the spray park is working again thanks to installation of a solar panel by the City of Edmonton. Finally our hot children can be cooled off again. Since the spray park started up again, it has been full!
The spray park had been powered from the old hall’s electrical service. When the hall came down, the power to the spray park also stopped. The City’s team worked quickly to engineer and install a solar powered system and get the spray park back in service.
The hall foundation and underground utility work is well underway. Taking advantage of good weather, Southwark’s crew and subtrades have even been working on weekends! The concrete foundation is complete, and the under-floor plumbing and drainage lines are being installed. The first steps to install the masonry block making up part of the exterior are also taking place: This block, larger than normal brick, has a dark grey terrazzo-like appearance, and will be attached to the building supported on a galvanized steel framework.
In August, you should see walls framed and covered, and roof trusses installed, giving the hall it’s shape before exterior finishes are installed.
Be sure to take a walk through the park and check out the progress. And give the Southwark crew a thumbs up or a shout out!
