The Granite Club

Aquatics Complex

The fourth Granite Club opened in 1972 on a beautiful twenty-two acre site on Bayview Avenue, bordering Toronto’s Don Valley. HH Angus was an integral part of the design and construction team for this premier facility, which provides members with one of the most complete and well-equipped athletic facilities in Canada.

HH Angus is privileged to enjoy a 40-plus-year relationship with the Granite Club and has been involved with many upgrades to the 80,000 ft2 structure since it opened.  

The mechanical, electrical and lighting design for the Aquatic Complex renovation included features such as a competition-scale swimming pool, training pool, whirlpool, and children’s pool with water features. Design of the addition also addressed the retractable roof and retractable perimeter walls.

The retractable roof posed a challenge for our lighting design team, who had to identify the location of the fixed structural members and incorporate the appropriate lighting design to address the sloped roof. The solution was the selection of luminaires and supporting details on the fixed structural members of the roof construction, accommodating the retractable roof elements.

HH Angus has also designed upgrades to seven squash courts, four badminton courts, eight curling rinks and separate skating rink, bowling alley, outdoor lawn bowling area, six tennis courts, and a fitness centre.
