Through ongoing work on the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre Aquatic Upgrade project, significant issues were discovered with a structural support column located in the original part of the facility that was constructed 40 years ago.
Upon discovery of the structural issue, the construction contractor notified City staff and an independent structural engineering company was brought in to examine all similar support columns. After doing a detailed assessment, the engineering firm recommended replacing all, or part, of 11 support columns in the facility. City staff moved immediately to undertake the column repairs and replacement. The addition of this work has extended the Leisure Centre Aquatic Upgrade completion timeline to early 2020.
