Pacific National Exhibition
Phillips Barratt Hillier Jones and Partners Engineers
Originally constructed for the Pacific National Exhibition, this 17,000-seat arena was first built by CANA in 1968.
This facility is multi-functional and can be used for a variety of activities, including concerts, sports events, and trade shows. The coliseum is spacious, with a mean sweeping distance of 68 feet from floor to ceiling. All of the standard amenities, including dressing rooms, offices, press areas, the exhibitors’ lounge, and full ticket facilities were constructed to meet the client’s needs.
CANA was also involved in an expansion and renovation project of the arena in 1984. This endeavor included the construction of private box suites in the upper deck portions of the building. The total value of coliseum projects CANA has worked on exceeds $11M.
We are best known for our unique and one-of-a-kind projects, but these projects are just some of many institutional, commercial, industrial, residential and infrastructure work that we complete.
