New approach to NDCC renos

The RDCK is taking a one-by-one approach to the various parts of the renovations needed at the Nelson and District Aquatic Centre.

This after the Regional District tendered the project earlier this year looking for a lump sum contractor for the entire job – but all bids came in at least $1.2 million over budget.

CAO Stuart Horn says it’s a very complex project so they’re going to hire a construction manager to co-ordinate things.

Horn says the original $4.9 million budget could increase and the renos will still last approximately eight months. However, the pool is expected to stay open through June and July.

Meanwhile the Nelson and District Recreation commission will make upgrades after an ammonia leak at the Complex last month left an employee slightly injured.

Money slated for this year’s delayed summer shutdown will be directed towards system upgrades at a cost of about $150,000.

The RDCK is co-operating with WorkSafeBC and the BC Safety Authority to review the leak.
