MEDICINE HAT, AB — Construction to expand the Veiner Centre remains on time, six months after the project broke ground.

“That building is coming along,” said Scott Woodside, project manager with the City of Medicine Hat. “We’ve almost got the building closed in.

“We’ve started the interior steel studs, and we’re continuing on with all of the interior works, such as HVAC, sprinklers and electrical and everything that comes along with the building that makes it run.”

The construction at the former site of the Veiner Centre, which was rendered unusable since the 2013 floods, has been ongoing since the summer. The $9.6 million project broke ground in May, with construction beginning soon after.

The building was brought down to the foundation when construction started, but is beginning to take shape.

Woodside said the new Veiner Centre is expected to be open in Summer 2018.

The city is posting progress updates on its website, so members of the public can view the facility.
