Mattamy National Cycling Centre

The Project

The 17th annual Pan American Games was headed to Canada, but the Toronto 2015 Organizing Committee needed a suitable host venue for the Games’ cycling tournament. This prompted the construction of a brand new velodrome. 

The project to bring Canada’s first world class indoor cycling velodrome to Milton, Ontario was not without its obstacles. The velodrome’s exterior cylinder shape was designed to wrap around the Category 1-certified indoor track. While this looked impressive, the building’s unique design presented equally distinctive challenges.

KS Series Micro Rib and Optimo panel systems were specified to help increase build-speed and to ensure the venue was worthy of international competition.

A Speedy Response

Both the Kingspan KS Series Micro Rib and Optimo panel systems can can be installed vertically and horizontally. The ease of installation proved to be a valuable asset to the project’s build-speed as there was little time to spare before the 2015 Pan Am Games.

Factory built, they were assembled off-site and ready to be installed on arrival. This helped eliminate any additional weather-related setbacks. The ease of installation also meant that less trades were needed, phasing out the worry of scheduling delays.

Bringing Home The Silver

Creating an energy efficient building was of great importance to the construction of the Mattamy National Cycling Centre. The Kingspan insulated metal wall panels provided the building with superior air and weather-tightness by eliminating heat loss or heat gain. The insulated core of the Kingspan IMPs provided superior thermal performance thanks to a high R-value. These performance benefits helped the velodrome achieve the highly regarded energy efficient LEED Silver certification.

It is now recognized as a world-class venue designed as a Category 1-certified indoor 250-metre timber track, which features two 42-degree angle banks.
