Garmong Construction based in Terre Haute has been selected by the Evansville Board of Park Commissioners to manage the $28 million Deaconess Aquatics Center project in Gavin Park.
Construction will begin in the spring and the project is expected to be completed in August, 2020, News-14 reports.
Executive director Brian Holtz says the commissioners chose Garmong because of its connection to the community, price, and experience.
“We’ve had a handful of other aquatics related components to our construction portfolio and healthcare facilities or physical therapy facilities,” Garmong regional manager Jeremy Kunz told the broadcaster. “These are a unique trend here in Indiana. There aren’t a lot of them here in the Midwest. The city is embarking on a nice leading edge project for the community.”
The board is also considering bids for the demolition of Garvin Park Pool and the surrounding area. There were three bids, and these will be reviewed by mid-February.
