Construction continues at Radium Hot Springs pools

Demolition done, slab for subfloor poured

Submitted by Parks Canada

Here is an update on the ongoing construction at the Radium Hot Springs pools facility. This project continues to progress during Parks Canada’s temporary suspension of visitor services.

Demolition was completed the week of March 23, and the contractor completed pouring the new slab for the subfloor by April 1. Demolition revealed that there were no additional issues that would impact the project’s progress, and contractors were able to quickly move to the next project phase.

Over the coming weeks, the contractor will continue to finish the concrete slab and replace mechanical services which were removed during the demolition phase.

We are pleased with the progress of the ongoing construction and continue to support the contractor responsible for construction at the pools facility. We do not have an anticipated date of reopening at this time due to the current health situation but will ensure to communicate as soon as one is available. Additional updates on the construction at the facilities will be shared as we move through the next phases of construction. Construction updates will also continue to be posted to www.hotsprings.ca/radium-construction.

We hope you are all keeping well.
