As the Chautauqua season approaches, progress on the Grindley Aquatic & Wellness Campus continues to spring forward.

Recently, the pool building's interior was painted, railings and ventilation were added to the mechanical room, and the exterior furring strips were added in preparation for the siding. In the pool building, the epoxy floor coating was applied. Patterson Pools will soon be installing the pool equipment, and hardie plank siding is currently being applied.
The entry building and pool are also blossoming! The exterior furring strips have been added to the entry building in preparation for the siding. Also, the counter space was measured, and fabrication has begun. Concrete has been poured for the pool's floor, and now must cure. The surrounding area is filled with stone in preparation for the pouring of the concrete deck. In addition, final piping and electrical was installed for pool skimmer drains and pool lights, and slide foundations were poured. The pool, entry building and pool building are set to open for the Fourth of July.
In the Wellness Center, the trusses are in place and framing is complete. The roof decking and ice guard were installed and installation of the metal roofing is underway. Also, HVAC final plans are being developed, including the duct routing. The Wellness Center windows are being installed, the cupolas were placed, and the porch floor will be poured in conjunction with the concrete pool deck.
As construction progresses, we want to thank everyone who made this dream a reality. We are very excited about this new addition to the community this summer!
