The Town of Three Hills is spending $584,000 to retrofit and repair its 33-year-old Aquatic Centre.
Mike Glavin, Director of Operations and Infrastructure, said the upgrades will address deterioration and moisture-related issues with the roof and walls.
“The roof leaks,” he said, “its membrane is stretching and we have heat loss through exterior walls.”
In addition to a new R-30 roof, the two-month project sees metal siding replacing exterior brick walls.
At its April 14, 2020, meeting, Kneehill County council approved a $200,000 grant request from the Town of Three Hills for the upgrades.
Glavin said the wall retrofit will cost approximately $223,000 and the roof project $242,000.
The wall contract went to Greenough Construction in Edmonton and the roofing contract was won by Airdrie’s Top Roof and Exteriors.
