Concrete Awards recognize Burlington Performing Arts Centre



The project team for the Burlington Performing Arts Centre has won the 2013 Ontario Concrete Award in the category of sustainable concrete construction. The LEED Gold project incorporated 3,800 cubic metres of concrete. Concrete played a major role in material re-use and recycling. High slag content was used in the massive concrete walls that provide acoustic separation around the main theatre. Sound resource management was achieved by the reuse of slag as an industrial by-product and contributed to the reduction of new limestone quarrying. The project team included Bird Construction, architect of record Diamond Schmitt Architects, engineer of record CH2M HILL and material supplier Hamilton Ready Mix Ltd.

The Burlington Performing Arts Centre facility includes a main stage theatre under a 75-foot high, five-level fly tower with seating for 730 on two levels and a studio theatre with capacity for 221 people.
