Notice of Construction & Detour – Athlete's Way

From early December through January, there will be construction and detours at Athlete’s Way (the pathway between the Student Recreation Centre and War Memorial Gym). As part of the construction, the work being performed will have the following impacts:

  • There will be trenches from between the SUB/north parkade, down to beside our building and all the way up athletes way for install of new water piping infrastructure.
  • Estimated this will take a month, but will be in phases where each area will be occupied for 2 weeks before the next section is started and the previous is re-filled.

Detours and Access Limitations

  • There will be a narrow walk-way along the east side (side nearest to the Student Recreation Centre) of the Student Union Building providing access to the UBC Aquatic Centre, War Memorial Gym, and along War toward Wesbrook Mall.
  • No access between the SRC and SUB for the first portion of the project (estimated to be the first 2-3 weeks after construction begins)
  • No access from the SRC to War Memorial Gym or Aquatic Centre without walking toward North Parkade and detouring around the Student Union Building or walking around the bus loop along Wesbrook Mall.

Also, please note that during this time, SRC building access will be limited to:

  • Main entrance doors only
  • The secondary entrance doors near the bike rack will only be accessible by a small walkway along the side of the building
  • For accessibility, a ramp will be installed to create a walkway through the garden and down the side of the building

Maps of the construction area have been provided to better outline the detours and impacts during this time.
