Design Consultant Team for Sam Ketcham Pool Upgrade Project Selected

The Cariboo Regional District and the City of Williams have selected the Design Consultant Team for the Sam Ketcham Pool (SKP) upgrade project.

The successful firm is Vic Davies from Victoria.

A total of six responses to the Design Consultant Request for Proposals were received and the SKP project working group conducted on-site tours and interviews with four short-listed candidates.

Vic Davies Architecture was the most experienced firm and design team having completed forty 25-meter lap/competition pools, and 15 combined lap and leisure facilities for a total of 40 aquatic centres.

The firm is considered an innovation leader in aquatic design; the first to design a leisure pool in Canada (Maple Ridge); first to incorporate a wave pool in British Columbia (Langley) and the first indoor accessible waterslide in North America (North Saanich).

“The Sam Ketcham Pool Working Group and our project management firm were pleased with the quality of the submissions we received for the renovations and upgrade design,” stated CRD Electoral Area F Director Joan Sorley in a joint press release.

“Their extensive experience shows their ability to deliver exemplary designs on budget and on time.”

“The selection of the Design Consultant Team is another exciting step forward for this project,” said Williams Lake City Councillor Laurie Walters.

“I can’t wait to see the results of the next design phase.”

The full project team including Vic Davies Architecture and Tango Project Management will be attending tonight’s Central Cariboo Joint Committee meeting at Williams Lake City Hall at 5 p.m to introduce themselves.

All residents are welcome to attend.
