CSI Pacific Announce Completion of High Performance Centre Fitness Outdoor Expansion at the Whistler Athletes’ Centre
WHISTLER, BC – The Canadian Sport Institute of the Pacific (CSI Pacific) is proud and pleased to announce our brand new expansion to the high performance outdoor fitness center at the Whistler Athletes’ Center. This project was carried out in partnership with Whistler Sport Legacies.
The exterior surface expansion project which uses rubber from recycled BC Tires was completed in July 2020 and is ready for use.
This project will provide Canada’s elite athletes and coaches who train with CSI Pacific in Whistler with additional space for daily training and sport development. This additional space and new surface will allow CSI Pacific to help Canada’s athletes continue to achieve global success at the Olympic and Paralympic Games, now and in the future.
In early 2020, CSI Pacific kicked off construction on the expansion project located next to the Whistler Athletes’ Center gymnasium. After months of disrupted work due to COVID-19, construction is finally complete. CSI Pacific is excited about this new expansion as it will provide more training opportunities for the organization as well as the public.
This project uses rubber from recycled British Columbia tires to create an environmentally friendly and sustainable surface. Marathon Surfaces, the supplier of the rubber materials, is a 14mm Spurtan BV, a 14mm two-layer sandwich style polyurethane track system. The base layer consists of a black mat of SBR rubber granules, polyurethane bonded, with a thin layer of waterproofing. The topcoat is a fluid applied polyurethane topcoat with a dense matrix of diffusing EPDM rubber granules.
Our new outdoor fitness extension was made using 12,400 lbs of BC rubber from recycled tires. This environmentally friendly surface material was chosen because it allowed us to incorporate sustainable materials into the project.
CSI Pacific would like to thank our financial partners for supporting us throughout this project: Tire Stewardship BC and Real Estate Association of Whistler.
Real Estate Association of Whistler is the most comprehensive resource for real estate listings in Whistler and Pemberton and proudly supports community and local projects in the Sea-To-Sky Corridor.
