North Cariboo Arena Replacement Project Open House
Quesnel, B.C. – The Cariboo Regional District and the City of Quesnel will be hosting an open house on Tuesday, September 29 from 6-8 p.m. in the lobby of the North Cariboo Twin Arenas. The open house will be an opportunity for residents to view the final construction drawings and ask questions of the project manager, the architects, elected officials and staff about the project status.
A Request for Qualifications was issued in the spring for the project and five firms have been short-listed. These firms will be invited to bid on the Request for Proposals (RFP) to be the General Contractor for the project. The RFP will be issued at the end of October and awarded in mid-December.
Ground will be broken for construction of the West Fraser Centre in the spring of 2016 with an estimated completion date of the fall of 2017.
The City of Quesnel’s Public Works Department has commenced relocation of a number of underground utilities in preparation for the start of spring construction. Water, sewer, and storm water lines will need to be moved to accommodate the building footprint and to service the building. Most of the relocation work will take place on Callanan Street and in LeBourdais Park, immediately east of the curling rink. Smaller portions of the work will take place on Vaughan Street, the Civic Plaza and the lane running north/south between Vaughan Street and Callanan Street.
