UBC Aquatic Centre

UBC Aquatic Centre

The UBC Aquatic Centre, which opened in 2017, provides a state of the art aquatic facility with significant sustainability features. Rainwater is collected in an underground cistern and is used to top up the pool and provide water for toilets and irrigation. The pool, which is heated by District Energy and employs heat recovery is one of the only pools in Canada that is designed to harvest rainwater as an alternative to using only potable water. In addition, changing rooms promote use by diverse groups and maximize visibility and security.
