Request for Proposals for Feasibility Study for a Pool,
Recreation Centre / Sports Multiplex

The City of Parksville seeks a qualified consultant to examine the feasibility of constructing a recreation centre with a swimming pool and sportsplex within City limits. The consultant will be required to identify funding models for the facility and provide a range of options for the facility’s size and scale of uses. It is acknowledged the capital and operating costs of a multiplex facility can vary greatly. In this respect, the City is interested in understanding the basic lower level costs as opposed to award winning designs incorporating a host of supplementary amenities such as public art, LEED certification or premium architectural finishes.
