Cowichan Aquatic Facility

District of North Cowichan / City of Duncan, Duncan, BC
Value: $20,000,000
Completion: Aug. 2008

Project and Construction Management of a new 25 m lap pool, leisure pool, waterslide and wave pool adjacent to the existing Cowichan Centre in downtown Duncan.

As PM and CM for this project, Unitech worked successfully with the Owner and the Project Team to develop timely and cost effective solutions to significant challenges that became apparent subsequent to our engagement and was able to have the facility available for the North American Aboriginal Games as originally scheduled. Examples of these challenges are high flow ground water that required 24/7 pumping, the introduction of piling and lightweight fill due to ground conditions delineated during the design development stage and the shortage of manpower during the busiest construction market in BC history.
