MTS Centre – Sports and Entertainment Arena

This project consisted of a new 440,000 square foot sporting facility with the capability of seating 15,015 people. The challenge was to build a functional, modern building and to do so within a limited budget.

This involved a design assist approach, with a guaranteed maximum price in mind, with all the parties involved. The end result is a facility that is known for its excellent sound and has made Winnipeg a more prominent location for concerts. As of 2008, the new MTS Centre was listed as the 19th busiest arena in the world, (something that all Winnipeggers can be proud of).


Installation of the lighting system, energy efficient sport lighting system, building control systems, communication systems, energy efficient distribution system, state-of-the-art entertainment system (including jumbo-tron), and life safety systems.
