Work is progressing with select demolition of the interior and exterior of the Veiner Centre. You will see that the roof is currently being removed and the entire East side of the building should be demolished to the foundation within the next couple of weeks. Demolition of the Lion’s Kitchen is underway to be replaced by another kitchen and washrooms on the North side of the building that will be part of the new Seniors Centre building itself.

A great crowd of City officials, members of the Senior Citizens Advisory Committee and project staff were on hand for the official sod turning at the Veiner Centre site of the Seniors Centre Redevelopment Project.
Updated detailed designs of the Seniors Centre Development Project were shared with the public at an open house at the Strathcona Centre on Nov. 28. Attendees were able to ask staff and the architect questions, see site plans and floor plans, and learn more about the project.
Seniors Centre Development
Detailed design of the project is approximately 60% complete. Revisions to the design will be shared with the public at an Open House scheduled for November 28, 2016 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Strathcona Centre.
Changes to the design have been made as a result of the input and comments from the Open House in June, which included discussion on the trees, pathways etc. from the nearby home owners. The project continues to be on schedule, and the next major steps include tendering the work in January / February 2017, with the intent to start the actual construction in the spring.
Council approved the Seniors Centre development design for the Veiner Centre and Strathcona Centre at its Aug. 2, 2016 meeting.
Staff worked with FWBA Architects to create a design that would maximize the use of the current Veiner Centre main floor, minimize the size of required expansion and take advantage of the Strathcona Centre for specific functional programming. A combination of renovated space, demolition/construction and new expansion will occur at the Veiner Centre building.
Design development continues.
Met with SCAC and Building Committee representatives on June 7 and 14 to review proposed site plans, floor plans and basic building elevations and receive feedback.
