Life after the Olympics for Richmond Olympic Oval

The Richmond Olympic Oval serves as the centerpiece of a new, urban, waterfront neighbourhood featuring mixed development. This signature speed-skating venue for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games has transitioned to an international centre of excellence for sports and wellness, and venue for community events, creating a lasting legacy beyond its Olympic Games purpose.
The main structure is comprised of 15 composite wood glulam arches, spanning 100 m in length and made from locally-harvested B.C. Douglas Fir lumber carried on 30 concrete buttresses. One million board feet of pine-beetle-killed wood from recently devastated pine forests in British Columbia form the roof deck and the secondary structural panels. The roof integrates heating, ventilating, air conditioning, plumbing, acoustical, electrical and lighting systems and their appurtenances. HVAC ducts are integrated within the glulam arches with motorised nozzle jets that deliver conditioned air to the activity areas. Sprinkler pipes and heads are also integrated into the ceiling panels and the arches.
