Calgary Soccer Centre Soccer Centre Dome & Artificial Turf Field Upgrade

The Calgary Soccer Centre (CSC) currently has three outdoor artificial turf fields and one outdoor natural turf field. This project will upgrade the outdoor natural turf field to an artificial turf field and cover it with an air-supported structure. 

Design

The scope of work proposed in this project includes the following:

  • Upgrading the natural turf field to artificial turf.
  • Building an air-supported structure over the new artificial turf field.
  • Parking improvements.
