The new $191 million, 26,332 m2 City of Calgary recreation centre reached completion in January 2018. The facility, now operating as the Shane Homes YMCA at Rocky Ridge takes the shape of the hilly grasslands that surround it. Proven by its long list of amenities, sustainable initiatives do not require the sacrifice of fun. Some features include: a 25 m 8-lane competition pool with an adjacent spectator area, a leisure pool with a wave system and water slides, hot tubs and a steam room, a multi-purpose ice rink, a leisure ice rink, 3 gymnasiums, a fitness centre and indoor track, a library, a 250-seat theater, food services, childcare services, and a clinic.


Mission Green Buildings provided LEED consulting, energy modeling, fundamental commissioning, and measurement and verification services for this project.
