fiscal responsibility. On the Innisfree House project
Gateman-Milloy was able to adapt original construction plans to find efficiencies and save critical donation dollars for other uses. The team also worked

and less like an institution.
World-class Sporting Facility
Construction of the BMX Supercross Legacy
Project for the 2015 PanAm Games also earned
Gateman-Milloy an award for building excellence
in the Commercial $2 to $5 million category. BMX
Supercross racing became an Olympic medal sport
for the 2008 Beijing summer games under the
International Olympic Committee-recognized Union
Cycliste Internationale (UCI). It is a type of off-road
bicycle racing derived from motocross racing. Races
are held on purpose-built off-road single-lap tracks
which usually consist of a starting gate, a groomed
serpentine dirt race course made with jumps of various sizes, large banked corners for riders to maintain
speed, rollers and a finish line.
The 517-meter closed-loop track constructed by
Gateman-Milloy is reputed to be the premier professional BMX course in the world. It covers 2.55
hectares of Centennial Park in Etobicoke and is the
only track in Canada to be designed, constructed, and
certified to UCI standards. Because of its BMX track
building experience and other premier recreational
installations, Gateman-Milloy was invited to bid on
this project by the PanAm Games Committee as a
prequalified general contractor in May 2014. The
