PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — Officials with the City of Prince George announced crews are making major progress on the city’s new downtown pool facility.
Chandos Construction has begun installing large steel beams near Dominion Street and between 7th and 6th Avenues.
Roughly three to four dozen steel columns, some as long as 15 metres, will be erected at the site in the months to come. This phase of the operation will involve the construction of the pool’s mechanical rooms and penthouse level, as well as the change rooms.
Officials explained that the column erection represents the start of the next phase of construction of the new facility, which will replace the Four Seasons Leisure Pool, located across 7th Avenue from the construction site.
Officials expect this work to take all spring. Once complete, crews will then start building the facility’s envelope.
Last month, crews finished the facility’s concrete building foundation, which was the first phase of the construction operation.
