Project overview

Project description

The City of Ottawa is undertaking the design and construction of the Beacon Hill North Community Centre Expansion & Renovation.

The Beacon Hill North Community Centre is located at 2130 Radford Court and is situated within Eastvale Park. The current community centre is a 246 square meter split level facility with a single multipurpose room, small kitchenette, washrooms, office and a small meeting room. The building currently supports an outdoor rink, sports fields and splash pad and has limited community program function and use.

The objective of this project is to increase recreational programming opportunities for the Rothwell Heights - Beacon Hill North community by constructing an addition to the existing Beacon Hill North Community Centre, renovating existing indoor space and developing a new courtyard patio. The design of the building addition is complimentary to the existing architecture. The new and renovated program space is designed with windows to bring in natural light.

The project will see the construction of a 140 square meter addition to the existing community centre and renovate the existing interior space to provide two (2) multi-purpose program rooms with dedicated storage, a full-size kitchenette and universal washrooms.
