The Build Your Own Activity Hub consultation process grew out of the master planning process as a way to engage service users on what potential enhancements to the Castlegar & District Community Complex (CDCC) should look like, and on which enhancements should be completed sooner versus later.

The Castlegar & District Recreation Commission, through the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK), is responsible for the governance of the CDCC. Incorporated in 1965, the RDCK is a local government that serves 60,000 residents in 11 electoral areas and nine member municipalities. The RDCK provides more than 160 services to residents, ranging from utility and environmental services, to community recreation centres and regional parks. For more information about the RDCK, visit rdck.ca.

HCMA Architecture + Design challenges the traditional boundaries of architectural practice by asking one question. “How do we achieve the maximum positive impact through design?”
That curiosity leads to technological innovations, valuable community engagements, and ultimately to positive changes in people’s lives. From planning and design, to consultation and evaluation, we take projects beyond what’s expected, and beyond what’s trending, to deliver places that maximize potential. In the ways that we work, design, give back, and connect – we are catalysts for healthier, more creative, more engaged communities. hcma.ca
