On Monday March 6 Council awarded the contract for the Aquaplex modernization to Pearl Rose Construction Ltd from Red Deer.
The work to be undertaken includes the modification of the existing pool liner, installation of a new liner system and hot tub as well as upgrades to mechanical electrical and architectural components within the Aquaplex.
“This bid was just over $217,000 below the previous tender and the contractor has a great deal of experience with similar projects, explained Darryl Drohomerski Director of Infrastructure, “ The next steps will be to meet with the contractor and staff to finalize the construction schedule and plan for the switch over to the outdoor pool in May. A priority will be to ensure the best possible service to users of the Aquaplex throughout the summer.”
“Unfortunately disruption to users is unavoidable but the new pool will be a great facility for the people of Drumheller”, added Paul Salvatore Director of Community Services. “We will be communicating as soon as possible about changes to schedules and will continue providing updates to do throughout the summer to keep people informed”.
