Binnie completed the Mickey McDougall Lawn Bowling Greens in Fall 2021. The Mickey McDougall Lawn Bowling Greens are now officially open for play. While the fieldhouse is slated for construction starting Winter 2021, the Lawn Bowling Greens are now open to rave reviews. Viewed by the local clubs as the best in the West, the Mickey McDougall Greens has been attracting positive feedback from members across the Lower Mainland.
Starting in 2018, Binnie staff worked with the City of North Vancouver to develop a new synthetic turf specification to allow greater competition in the Lawn Bowling supply and installation market. Working with suppliers in Australia and England, the eventual supplier was selected from England. While the supply and installation during the COVID pandemic and travel restrictions created immense challenges for an overseas supplier, Binnie’s construction team worked with a local General Contractor to source a local installation crew and ensure a world-class installation.
The site design was very difficult with the significant constraints in grading. With our staff’s creativity in retaining wall design and ramp/staircase transitions, the greens are artfully nestled into the North Shore slopes. Binnie’s skilled design and construction staff made the project a world-class facility that will soon be hosting National and International Lawn Bowling competitions.
