Notice for Concrete Slab Pour Hours of Operation Exemption

Please be advised that the City of Beaumont has approved an exemption of Bylaw Number 642-05 Noise Abatement, applied for by Clark Builders for multiple concrete pours as a part of construction at the Beaumont Sports and Recreation Centre. The exemption is applicable only for the dates listed below. However, due to weather and construction sequencing, these dates are subject to change with little notice.

  • June 28, 2019;
  • July 3, 2019;
  • July 4, 2019;
  • July 11, 2019;
  • July 16, 2019;
  • July 25, 2019;
  • July 31, 2019;
  • Aug 2, 2019;
  • Aug 12, 2019; and
  • Aug 13, 2019.

The exemption allows Clark Builders, and any of our subcontractors, to operate equipment at the Beaumont Sport and Recreation Centre construction site before 0700 hours or after 2300 hours on the identified dates above. This exemption is to complete the concrete slab pours. The structural slab floor pour is a critical phase of construction to maintain structural and architectural considerations. Commercial concrete pours require the water to bleed off the slab before the start of the finishing process, and this can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 4 hours depending on various weather elements (humidity, temperature and wind).

    FAQ’s


    When is the shutdown occurring?

    August 24-September 18, 2019


    Why is the shutdown occurring?

    The new roof is being tied to the existing roof and the pool needs to be closed so that the work proceeds in the correct environment and for the safety of all users and staff.


    Why is the shutdown happening now?

    The project plan has determined this needs to occur before there is any snow load on the roof.


    How will this affect programming at the pool?

    The first set of fall swimming lessons will be affected by the closure. This lesson set will be shortened and the price will be adjusted accordingly. Fall registration will continue on August 19 as scheduled online, in person and over the phone. Aqua-Fit classes and public swimming will not be running during the closure.
    If you have questions about a specific class please call Guest Services 780-929-7946.
