Now that demolition of the Borough’s 50-year-old pool has been completed, it is finally time for construction of the brand-new pool to begin! Bids for the project were opened at the Borough Building on January 11, 2022. At the January 19, 2022 meeting, Council awarded four separate contacts for the project as follows:
Contract 1: General Construction – Nello Construction Company
Contract 2: Electrical Construction – Merit Electrical Group, Inc.
Contract 3: Plumbing Construction – First American Industries, Inc.
Contract 4: Mechanical Construction – East West Manufacturing & Supply Company, Inc.
Additionally, several Add-Alternates were awarded as well including interior renovations of the existing bathhouse, the purchase and installation of new concession stand equipment, improvements at Brennan Plaza and the addition of underwater pool lights. A Deduct-Alternate for the installation of form lined cast concrete walls in lieu of stone veneer was also awarded for a savings of $157,000.00.
Contracts with the 4 companies were signed at the February 11, 2022 Pre-Construction meeting and Massaro CM Services, LLC was hired as the Construction Manager at the February 16, 2022 Council Meeting. Massaro will provide comprehensive construction administration on a full-time basis for the duration of the project.
Borough staff is finalizing funding in anticipation of a late March/early April start date for construction.
Project completion is set for April 2023.
The new pool will include zero depth entry, a dedicated exercise pool, a water slide, underwater pool lights for night swimming activities and so much more!
Whitehall looks forward to welcoming back old friends and new pool patrons next Spring. Any questions about this project will be answered by calling 412-884-0505.
