City begins deconstruction of historic stadium
The City of Regina is preparing to begin deconstruction of the historic Mosaic Stadium after recently awarding a contract for the project.
“The demolition of a stadium is a once in a generation experience in our city,” says Mayor Michael Fougere. “We are confident that the deconstruction plan will be implemented safely, respectful of the nearby residents and mindful of the environment thanks to its waste minimization strategy.”
This summer, the City partnered with McDougall Auctions Ltd. to dispose of a wide range of assets from our historic stadium, and fans answered the call to own a piece of history. Among many other items sold, 114,500 square feet of turf and 880 benches were diverted from the City landfill.
The auctions have been the first phase of the Stadium’s decommissioning. Work to deconstruct will begin in September. All above grade elements will be removed by December 2017, with site restoration complete by spring of 2018.
The City plans to host a public Open House in partnership with contract recipient Budget Demolition to inform residents about the deconstruction process. Residents are invited to drop in, ask questions and learn more on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Sportplex, 1717 Elphinstone Street.
