Construction Update (as of July 12th)

The Evergreen Seniors Centre construction project is progressing well. Passersby can see that the surface layers of asphalt have been removed from the parking lot and the interlocking pavers have been pulled up from the walkways. In addition, the waterproofing membrane has been replaced; new curb cuts have been added; and other small enhancements have been completed.

Staff have been busy with a variety of tasks inside the Evergreen Building. They have refinished the floors in the gymnasium and room 4; deep cleaned all furniture and windows; and repainted the kitchen. Now, they are working on the kitchen including steam cleaning oven hoods and all stainless steel components. Professional cleaning of all surfaces (tile floors, kitchen mats, counters, etc) is slated, too.

The ambitious work schedule for the summer project is on schedule. The facility manager and his staff look forward to welcoming Evergreen and GWSA staff; visitors; and GWSA members back to the refreshed Evergreen Centre in early August.
