Update - June 2022
The District is currently completing the last pieces of work that need to be done prior to tendering the construction contracts. This work includes:
- Final design and specifications
- Final pre-construction planning and coordination
Once this work is completed we will tender the contracts. Our anticipated date for that is late summer 2022.
The West Vancouver Place for Sport project is a new track and artificial turf field located at West Vancouver Secondary School. It will replace the existing deteriorating track and poorly-draining grass field.
Although the facility is located on school district land, the Ministry of Education does not provide funding for sports fields. Funding to support this project has been committed by West Vancouver Council, West Vancouver Schools, fundraising and private donations.
In March 2022, an updated estimate was obtained for the project. The Class B estimate is $9.5 million.
The next step is to go to market to obtain a fixed-price bid. At the same time, the District continues to explore additional avenues of funding. Once the fixed-price bids are received, construction plans will be finalized.
Construction anticipated starting in 2022
The District will schedule information meetings to update the neighbourhood on the project details.
