City of Prince Albert
Prince Albert, Saskatchewan
The project began with an extensive master planning exercise from which a precise program was developed to provide the user needs as expressed by the public. The Alfred Jenkins Field House houses office administration and an indoor soccer field that is half the size of a regulation outdoor soccer field. The focal point of the building is a climbing wall which is centrally located in the main entrance corridor. Adjacent to this space on the main level is a gymnasium and the City of Prince Albert administration offices. The second floor is comprised of an exercise facility, soccer spectator seating, three multi-purpose rooms for community events and private gatherings. The third level of the facility consists of a three-lane indoor running track for public and private use. The location of the field house offers employees and patients of adjacent hospital the opportunity to utilize the facility for rehabilitation and personal uses—creating a “health campus” on the West Hill.
