Mar Lan Construction was selected as Construction Manager at Risk to build the new 22,500 square foot facility.

The Ottawa Community Recreational Center provides regulation and youth-sized basketball courts, a large multi-purpose room that is used as an exercise room, elevated walking/running track, a fitness area, and all of the required amenities to make the Center a perfect facility for both youth and seniors alike. To make the facility more adaptable for community events, the building includes a warming kitchen and serving window so that large events can be scheduled in the activity area.

The exterior of the structure is a unique blend of masonry, metal and polycarbonate glazing which presents an open and inviting look to the facility. The translucent panels give a warm glow during evening hours while the clear glass allows views of the interior activity.
