Work un­der­way to cor­rect lev­el­ness is­sue at Har­bour Grace sta­dium

The Compass - - Editorial - BY AN­DREW ROBIN­SON ed­i­tor@cb­n­com­pass.ca

Work is un­der­way to ad­dress the lev­el­ness of the con­crete slab un­der­neath the new sta­dium in Har­bour Grace.

The town pre­vi­ously iden­ti­fied an is­sue when the Zam­boni would con­tact con­crete as it came close to the edge of the ice sur­face at the Danny Cleary Har­bour Grace Com­mu­nity Cen­tre. Once ice was re­moved in the spring, ex­posed pip­ing and re­bar were no­ticed.

Town coun­cil­lors unan­i­mously agreed to get in touch with the main con­trac­tor for the fa­cil­ity, Pomer­leau, to de­mand a fix. Pomer­leau agreed to take ac­tion, and the town’s chief ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer, Michael Sac­cary, pro­vided an up­date at the June 28 coun­cil meet­ing on how the work is go­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to Sac­cary, the com­pany had some ar­eas lev­eled off fur­ther and took some mea­sure­ments.

“They have just a cou­ple of more that need at­ten­tion, so they’re go­ing to go back at it again (be­gin­ning) next week to try and get that rec­ti­fied and get it to the specs,” he said last Wed­nes­day.

Stan­tec, an en­gi­neer­ing com­pany that also worked on the sta­dium’s cre­ation, will also do some mea­sure­ments once the work is fin­ished, Sac­cary added.

The new mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar fa­cil­ity opened last Septem­ber, fol­low­ing years of con­struc­tion and plan­ning.
