The renewal of the Terrace Aquatic Centre is well underway, with contractors blazing through the upgrades to be finished in early-2018..
The pool closed in early-February and Viking Construction started work in March, tearing up concrete in front of the pool to make way for the building addition along the front, which will be a windowed fitness centre about 2,000 square feet.
Crews are also building a family changeroom, re-doing the hot tub, and overhauling to the leisure pool.
When it’s all done there will be a lazy river, more water features, and wheelchair access.
The total expected cost for the project is $8.8 million, which includes construction, contingency fees, professional fees, improvements to the parking area and new energy-efficient lighting.
