As of April 4, 2016 the Indoor pool is still closed, the asbestos has been abated, and mold that grew behind the walls as a result of the high humidity in the building (the mold was not caused by leaks in the roof as previously reported) has been abated.
The next steps include:
- Inspection by a structural engineer to determine the extent of damage to the building structure,
- Design, bidding, permitting, and reconstruction of the damaged bathrooms, and
- Design of new mechanical systems by a mechanical engineering firm (space heating, dehumidification system, hot water system, and pool water heating and filtration system), which was planned for replacement this year.
Our Association Staff is overseeing and managing this project. Kirk Wooldridge is the project manager, Tom Callahan is inspecting the day-to-day work by the abatement contractor, and Jim Brooks is working to obtain estimates and bids on the restoration work.
The staff is evaluating two options for moving forward:
- Open the pool temporarily by closing off the damaged bath rooms and using portable bath rooms between completion of the abatement phase and beginning of the major reconstruction phase and then closing the pool again for major mechanical system work. This option will require the approval of the El Dorado County Health Department.
- Keep pool closed until all planned work is completed. In either case, the work that is currently planned will likely continue into August and the current estimate of the cost is approaching $500,000.
Updates on the status of the Indoor Pool will be posted on the website: www.tkpoa.com.
