Unforeseen damage adds $52,000 to cost of pool renovations

NORWICH – The Common Council met for a special meeting Tuesday afternoon to discuss the Kurt Beyer Pool and approve a continuation of repairs despite an additional expense of nearly $52,000 to the already costly renovation project.



Unseen damage was not counted into an original repair estimate given by contractor Wilcox Construction, which was awarded a bid of 219,698 for pool repairs earlier this year. According to the city’s Department of Public Works Superintendent Carl Ivarson, the extra damage – which includes extensive ice damage to roughly 500 square feet of Marcite lining the inside of the pool and four large cracks in the pool’s deep end – wasn’t unexpected.

Other additional repairs include: Marcite and tile work in the kids pool; repairs to expansion joints along the deck of the pool; and replacing broken depth mark tiles throughout the pool’s interior.
