Trust announces the appointment of DITT Construction for the repair works to the Brae Swimming Pool
Shetland Recreational Trust apologises for the extended closure of the North Mainland Pool. We now expect the pool to re-open at the end of September 2018. The delay has been caused by the protracted procurement and statutory approval process.
SRT Head of Assets and Business Support Andrew Lyall said “We are now delighted to confirm the appointment of DITT construction to carry out the storm damage repair works. DITT will commence works on Tuesday 17 July 2018 with the erection of a site access scaffold. Works will continue off site with the fabrication of the new roof structure which will then be installed during the month of September 2018”.
SRT General Manager James Johnston said: “We are sorry for the continued inconvenience for swimmers who wish to use the pool at Brae; staff are working to ensure that the pool re-opens at the earliest possible time, once the works commence we will keep customers up to date with progress”.
The dry side of the North Mainland Leisure Centre building remains open as normal, allowing customers to continue to use the fitness suite, steam room and squash court and attend dryside courses and classes.
