Concrete problem won’t be costly, says heritage centre

  • Nov. 24, 2004 6:00 p.m.

The Qay’llnagaay Heritage Centre’s concrete problem may make the project a bit late, but it won’t cost a dollar more than planned.
“The people of Skidegate and the islands won’t be paying for any remedial measures, I can assure you that,” said administrator Robert Dudoward.
Some spots on the centre’s concrete foundation will need to be fixed. The foundation was poured last summer, but recent tests revealed some weak spots that will have to be fixed somehow. David Nairne and Associates, the overseers of the project will decide this week what needs to be done, and make their recommendation to the Skidegate Band Council.
The construction of the project was originally supposed to be completed in June or July of 2005. Project manager Bob York has told Mr. Dudoward that he now hopes to be done by September 2005, depending on what measures David Nairne and Associates recommend.
After the construction is completed, the exhibits will be created. Mr. Dudoward expects the building will be open for the 2006 tourist season as planned.
