NexSource Centre construction scheduled to begin in three weeks

The next phase of the NexSource Centre Multiplex Redevelopment Project is set to begin.

The next phase of the NexSource Centre Multiplex Redevelopment Project is scheduled to begin in a few weeks, said Ron Lebsack, director of community services for the Town of Sylvan Lake, at a sponsors and local businesses meeting held at Sylvan Star Cheese last week.

Lebsack said construction workers will be in the ground in about three weeks to move some dirt around and work on utilities.

The overall budget for this project was $30.4 million with the project aiming to be completed sometime in late 2016 or early 2017, Lebsack said.

He said the project is going very well as the design stage is being finished off with workers heading towards starting construction.

“We have a great team on board of architects, engineers and now our construction managers in Clark Builders,” Lebsack said. “Things are progressing really well.”

Guests of the evening were given a full sponsorship package, which included sponsor opportunities, as more sponsors are needed.

“The arena, the curling rink and the seniors centre are still available for sponsors,” Lebsack said.  “If you build it, they will come. With construction starting in about three weeks we hope to wrap up the interest again and get some more sponsors on board.”

When the facility opens it will serve many purposes such as being an overall sports complex, a place to hold community events, a seniors community centre and a town hub, said Clark Builders senior project manager Brent Siminick.

“This will be an all-in-one community building,” Siminick said. “Rather than separate facilities, it will be state of the art. Along with the town, we’re really excited to be a part of it. We’re excited to be providing a hub for the community.”
