Chilliwack Coliseum

144,000-sf Multiplex Arena and Community Space


Chilliwack, BC




Wally Neumann MQN Architects



The Chilliwack Coliseum is the product of successful collaboration between Ventana Construction, Wally Neumann MQN Architects, Kor Structural, and the City of Chilliwack. It features a 144,000-sf multiplex arena with 5,000-seat NHL ice surface, a secondary NHL-size surface with 300 seats, and 20,000-sf of community space.

The facility was delivered through a design-build financeoperate venture with Hocket Capital Corporation. Community support, as evidenced by overwhelming referendum approval, marked the Chilliwack Coliseum as a very successful small-scale Public-Private Partnership project in BC.

The structure features long-span curved steel trusses and steel bracing which proved an economical solution to frame the building without impeding the rink space.
