Foreword

B+H has been designing distinguished sport projects for 34 years beginning with the Variety Village in Scarborough, an athletics facility for the disabled and predecessor to the internationally award winning Abilities Centre completed in 2012. This work has been a growing enthusiasm in our studios for a number of reasons but not least, the passion from the stakeholders and users behind each project. Whether it’s a community centre, a one rink hockey arena, a 33,000 seat football stadium or a major international event like the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games, the energy and purpose driving each project is similar and often based in a small group of tireless believers in the rewards of sport and physical recreation. It’s not easy to get these projects built. But they are essential. Our many clients often put weeks, months or more personal effort in development of and fundraising for these facilities and events innately aware of the social, health and indeed often economic benefits they will yield in their neighborhoods and towns. We have included in this small book a collection of our work culminating most recently in two large scale city building projects. These are the new Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan, the future home of the Saskatchewan Roughriders Canadian Football League franchise and the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Sport Venues project which included master planning for the entire event, overlay and facility planning and architecture for seven of the largest venues used for the Toronto 2015 games. B+H is excited to offer this quick summary of our work, our qualifications and as an introduction of our global firm with a 23 years legacy in China.

Toronto 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games INTRODUCTION As Infrastructure Ontario’s selected prime Master Planning, Planning, Design and Compliance (PDC) consultant, B+H Architects played a wide-ranging and vital role in ensuring that Toronto and 17 communities within an almost 200-km radius would be ready to take on the world for the Games. This prime role was amplified when the Abilities Center was selected as the premier venue for Parapan Am Sport and went on to win the prestigious Global Award of Distinction from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 2013.

B+H AND THE GAMES On an official visit to Toronto in March 2015, the International Paralympic Committee’s chief executive officer, Xavier Gonzalez, stated that Toronto was exceptionally well prepared for the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games. Marcel Aubut, head of the Canadian Olympic Committee, expressed a similar sentiment in June 2015. One month before the July 10 opening ceremonies, he declared that the Toronto 2015 games were already a “fantastic success,” due in large part to the world-class sporting venues built for the event and the organizing committee’s thorough preparedness. In May 2015, TO2015, the organizing committee for the Toronto 2015 Games, issued its fourth-quarter financial report 49 days before the start of the Games. TO2015 announced that they were approximately $53.5 million under budget for capital infrastructure spending, having spent $551.7 million of their $672-million capital

budget, with completion still pending at that point on only two venues. (B+H was PDC consultant on one of them, the CIBC Pan Am / Parapan Am Athletics Stadium at Toronto’s York University, and had no involvement on the other, the Pan Am Shooting Centre in Innisfil, Ontario.) Completion on both of these venues was expected well in advance of the Games, with the final construction total remaining well under budget. Our successful completion of our Games roles demonstrates B+H’s ability to design buildings that meet the highest criteria, often as Olympic pre-qualification fields of play for international competitive athletics, as well as reinforce the values of Infrastructure Ontario’s LEED® Silver minimum sustainability standard and track record of delivering 97 per cent of built projects on budget with 72 per cent delivered early or on time to date. It also attests to our strength in managing projects that have numerous and diverse stakeholders and sponsors. This project involved stakeholders from four municipalities, two of Ontario’s largest universities, a professional CFL franchise (the Hamilton Tiger-Cats), dozens of accredited amateur sport organizations, the Pan Am organizing committee, Toronto 2015, and municipal, provincial and federal funding agencies.
