Work to start on Aquatic Centre air handling unit replacement

Work will begin on a replacement to the Aquatic Centre’s air handling unit.

Humboldt council voted to spend $40,000 to develop engineered drawing and tender documents for the unit’s replacement at its Sept 10 meeting. The money is coming from $100,000 that was set aside in the 2018 budget for the replacement.

“This will give us a better idea as to exactly what the cost estimates are going to be, what the engineer’s drawings are going to be, where the location of the unit’s going to be,” said Michael Ulriksen, the city’s leisure services director. “We can bring that back here and make it part of the 2019 budget process and decide what we’re going to do moving forward.”

The unit is expected to cost between $200,000 and $250,000 to replace. Complicating the matter is the fact a new unit would have to be located elsewhere in the Aquatic Centre as the current unit is in a place where a wall would have to be knocked down in order to replace it.
