COMMUNITY STARTS HERE
Almost all community recreation centres have now become a symbol of operational efficiencies as Owners strive to reduce operating costs through more complex mechanical systems and controls. The Monteith approach applies early operational design review meetings to introduce both user groups, designers and construction partners to blend final technical specifications and applications to ensure seamless integration of the end product. From fitness centres to ice rinks to pools; simple renovations to full multi-service facilities, Monteith has experience with both construction management and design build projects that meet the demands of both the owner and the community.
