City of Saskatoon sues designers over issues at aquatic centre
City Hall seeks $1.845 million to pay for repairs
City Hall is suing after on-going problems with the environment inside Saskatoon’s Shaw Centre.
The city is seeking almost $2 million dollars from the engineers and architects who designed the heating and ventilation system for the indoor aquatic centre.
Since it opened five years ago, the Shaw Centre has been plagued with heating and humidity problems.
A consultant was hired, and repairs were completed in 2013. Some issues, however, remained and more money had to be spent to bolster the air exchange in the building.
Allegations contained in the statement of claim have not been proven in court.
