Eagle Bay Hall Update

In January, we told you about our work leading the renovation of the Eagle Bay Community Hall. The regional district and many private and corporate donors came together to fund a much-needed update of the venerable old building, which dates back to the 1950s. The goal was to modernize, enlarge and equip the facility so that it could meet the ever-increasing demand from community members.

Since then, Project Manager Doug Mann and Construction Client Liaison Nancy Costerton have been pushing hard to keep this project on schedule. Last week, as you can see in the photos below, new stainless steel countertops were installed in the new kitchen addition. That’s Steven and Benjamin Neufeld of Madera Contracting, one of our most-trusted subcontractors, doing the work. As well, new hand wash vanities were installed. Meanwhile, the new flooring is complete, as is installation of interior doors and trim. This week, we’ve had our painting and drywall crews working hard to finish touchups.

Next week, we’ll have all hands on deck to wrap up plumbing, electrical, HVAC, appliance installs, and commercial bathroom fixtures. The community hopes to have the grand old hall ready for a soft opening sometime later in April.

“This has been an amazing project to work on,” says Mann. “It’s not often we get to work on a project like this and contribute directly to fabric of our Shuswap community. This lovely old hall has created so many memories for Eagle Bay residents and visitors over the last seven decades, and with the work of our dedicated staff and sub-trades, it will soon be ready to create even more memories in the decades to come.”
