Songhees Wellness Center

Victoria, BC

The Sohnhees Wellness Centre is located at 1100 Admirals Road in Victoria, BC. It is a 3 storey concrete, steel and glue laminated timber structure of over 54,000 sq.ft. The building was completed in December 2013. Challenges to this building included a sloping site with steep rock faces and deep glacial trenches. The foundations are founded on steel cased concrete filled caissons embedded 8.0m into bedrock. The Gymnasium holds over 500 people with truss spans to 117 feet.

Herold Engineering Limited carried out all structural design including the geometry and complex structural connections. The design included working closely with Songhees First Nation to develop totem bases and supports including retaining walls. The structural aspects of water features where incorporated as part of Songhees vision.
