City Centre District Energy Work Begins at City Centre Aquatic Complex

by GS GS |

COQUITLAM, BC, July 11, 2014City of Coquitlam is starting construction on its City Centre District Energy Project that will connect the civic campus buildings, Coquitlam City Hall, City Centre Aquatic Centre (CCAC), RCMP Public Safety Building and Evergreen Cultural Centre.

The first stage of this project begins on July 14 at the City Centre Aquatic Facility. This work will see trenching and pipe installation from CCAC across Guildford Way to Coquitlam City Hall. This work is anticipated to take approximately two and a half weeks with the crossing of Guildford to take place during the week of July 21. Construction fencing will go up at CCAC on Monday, July 14, and there will be changes to the sidewalk access from Guildford as well as a temporary relocation of the bus stop in front of CCAC further to the west of CCAC along Guildford.

There are no changes to the number of parking parking spaces available for facility users but for the first week of construction at CCAC the parking lot will be slightly modified to allow proper vehicle access resulting in a temporary loss of eight parking stalls. Traffic control will be in the CCAC lot during this time to assist the public.

This project will be underway through Fall/Winter 2014. Residents can visit: www.coquitlam.ca/districtenergy for updates and for more information about this project.
