Redmond Pool Update - 11/8/19
The Redmond Pool is currently in the first phase of essential improvements which include new mechanical and electrical systems, air handling units, boiler systems, roof and windows, and improved circulation. These improvements will result in better air and water quality, energy efficiencies and operational savings. Phase 2 includes locker room and lobby improvements, pool deck re-surfacing and ADA improvements.
Recently contractors discovered an existing but unknown condition. The substructure of the pool is compromised; there are areas where concrete has deteriorated leaving aggregate and rusting rebar behind. The damage extends sporadically from approximately 1’ to 5’ off the bottom of the pool’s deep end. This unexpected repair will take approximately 3 months to correct the substructure and complete the pool lining. To accommodate this unexpected delay the Redmond Pool will not open in November as previously scheduled and will remain closed to complete both Phase 1 and 2 and is expected to re-open in fall of 2020.
Redmond Pool Update - 10/24/19
While our contractor was demolishing the lining in the deep end of the pool, an existing but unknown condition was discovered. The substructure of the pool is compromised; there are areas where concrete has deteriorated leaving aggregate and rusting rebar behind. Anderson Poolworks investigated on Tuesday, 10/22/19 and found the damage extends sporadically from approximately 1’ to 5’ off of the bottom of the pool’s deep end.
The pool was scheduled to open in November after the first phase of work was completed but due to these new developments, we will calculate a new timeline for the pool when we have determined the scope of work for the structural engineers and Anderson Poolworks. We hope to have the new timeline available next week.
