The new Kindersley Aquatic Centre project officials are pleased with how the building has been progressing despite delays.

Construction of the new aquatic centre began in the middle of 2017 and, according to officials, their goal is to complete the project by the fall of 2018. Two companies including a local contractor have joined forces to build the facility at a cost of approximately $6.5 million.

The two companies working on the facility are Pro-Bilt Structures Ltd. of Kindersley and Western Recreation & Development Inc. Pro-Bilt Structures is working on the building, and its partner is working on components that relate to the centre’s aquatic features.

Mayor Rod Perkins said two council members sit on a committee with project officials. The two councillors are Gary Becker and Dean Galbraith. Tim Hanna, the town’s director of community services, also sits on the committee.

Perkins said the officials meet once every couple of weeks and all project updates flow from the committee to other town officials. He said a lot of work still needs to be done before the town starts operating the facility but the project is well underway.
