Upon further review, Kamloops processes are ‘effective’

The city hired Turnbull Construction Project Managers, a project management company, to review the Tournament Capital Centre track replacement, Westsyde Pool roof and envelope remediation and the Kamloops Fire Rescue training burn building projects

A third-party review of three challenging city projects has concluded city processes are “effective,” the city’s civic operations director, Jen Fretz, told council on Tuesday, while offering ways in which the city could improve going forward.

The city hired Turnbull Construction Project Managers, a project management company, to review the Tournament Capital Centre track replacement, Westsyde Pool roof and envelope remediation and the Kamloops Fire Rescue training burn building projects.

The trio was chosen based on complexities, challenges and because they were completed by different contractors. The company reviewed documents, conducted site reviews and had conversations with city staff involved with projects.

Fretz said the review found most issues were resolved quickly, with no cost or scheduling impacts.

Suggested improvements included alternative procurement contracts, adding time contingencies — especially to renovation projects — and a pool of standby, third-party consultants and contractors to supplement limited resources.
