The Cariboo Regional District and the City of Williams Lake have awarded a contract for project management for the Sam Ketcham Pool (SKP) Upgrade project. The successful firm is the Tango Management Group from Vancouver, B.C.

A total of seven responses to the project management Request for Proposals were received and the SKP project working group conducted on-site tours and interviews with three short-listed candidates.

Tango Management Group and the lead project manager, John Bowser have extensive experience in the construction and renovation of aquatic centres — having been involved in more than 30 similar projects, including recent construction in Cochrane, Coquitlam, and Sechelt.

The proposal from Tango was the lowest price of the seven responses received and is within the budget target established for project management services in the overall SKP project budget.

“We were extremely pleased with the quality of the applications we received for this project,” said CRD Electoral Area F Director Joan Sorley. “The Sam Ketcham Pool Renovations Working Group was impressed with the experience of Tango on similar type projects and we are confident they were the best choice as Project Managers.”

“Being on schedule for the Sam Ketcham Pool renovations is a priority for the Working Group,” said City of Williams Lake Councillor Laurie Walters.  “I am delighted that this process is on track, and we are looking forward to moving ahead with the next steps of this important community project.”

Tango will begin work on the project immediately and will help coordinate the Request for Proposals for the architectural design team, which is expected to be released in the next couple weeks.

The Sam Ketcham Pool, located in the West Fraser Aquatic Centre at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex will undergo an extensive renovation upgrade over the next two years.

The next step in the project will focus on the procurement of the necessary consultants for development of detailed designs. The drafting of the procurement documents is in progress, as is the collection of all existing background reports and materials.
