The South Okanagan Event Centre (SOEC) was a P3 initiated development with the City of Penticton and consisted of adding a 5,000 seat spectator arena, a second ice pad, significant public galleria spaces and a hall of fame to the existing Convention Centre to increase its capabilities for attracting larger scale conventions, concerts and sporting events. This was successfully done with a signature architectural building which incorporated First Nation design elements at the front entrance to the complex and sculptural building forms which created a unified architectural whole.
