Cover completed a condition assessment and design proposal for the Salmo Valley Swimming Pool in Salmo, BC for the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) in 2021.
The assessment provided an evaluation of the existing pool basin, circulation system, and buildings in order to understand the critical issues for immediate maintenance and repairs, as well as a longer term outlook of the modifications and renovations that would be required to extend the life span, usability, and sustainability of the building.
The proposed building renovation reimagines the change room spaces and prioritizes accessibility and inclusivity. A large Universal Change Area is provided which will better serve families, people with disabilities, gender diverse people, and increase privacy and safety, as well as efficiency. This forward-thinking design provides flexibility and is intended to serve the community needs well into the future.
