Scotia Bank Arena

Large Assembly
Toronto, Ontario

Project Overview

The Scotiabank Arena (formerly the Air Canada Centre), located on Bay Street in Toronto, ON, opened its doors in 1999. The arena is a multi-purpose public facility of over 1,000,000 square feet that includes a 15-storey office tower and nearly 20,000 seats. LRI provided a comparative cost and time analysis, enabling increased exit capacity versus the provision of a smoke management system. We also offered building code review services to the design team so that expansion plans address the life safety needs of occupants. In addition, LRI provided a Fire Alarm system audit, as well as design, tendering, contract administration and close-out services for the retrofit of the fire alarm system serving the Scotiabank Arena and its adjoining office tower.

Our impact on the project

LRI’s experience with similar arena facilities allowed us to help the design team achieve greater design flexibility for current and possible future adaptations while ensuring compliance with Building Code regulations. The project achieved a LEED Silver Certification. Additionally, LRI has significant experience in providing Code, Systems and Fire and Life Safety services for Large Assemblies across Canada at some of the country’s most iconic arenas and auditoriums.
