Pinkard Construction has been awarded the Bay Aquatic Park Phase IV renovation project in Broomfield. The project cost is estimated at $9 million. It will include removing and replacing the primary leisure pool, family slide, body slides, and slide plunge pool, along with the addition of deck space, shade structures, and a new mechanical building. 

Pinkard was the general contractor for the original aquatic park when it was first built in 1991. Additionally, it was the first community water park in the Denver metro area, and due to age, condition, and updated health and building codes, the facility needs renovation.  

In 2022, BHA Design, Inc. and its team, including Counsilman-Hunsaker, were selected to design the project. Schematic design drawings were submitted in September 2022, and the project paused while additional funding was secured. Currently, the design is progressing toward the delivery of final construction drawings. 

“We are thrilled to have been awarded this project,” said Tony Burke, president of Pinkard Construction. “We have a long history of successful pool construction projects in Colorado, and we are excited to bring our expertise to the renovation of Broomfield Bay Aquatic Park. Our team is ready to work closely with BHA Design, Inc. and the City and County of Broomfield to deliver a high-quality project that will benefit the community for years to come. It’s very rewarding to be able to come back over thirty years later and work once again on a project that the community has enjoyed so much. Many of our current employees remember coming here as kids.”

“Pinkard Construction has been invaluable during the preconstruction phase by helping to ensure constructability and that cost-saving measures are captured in the final design,” said Brian Graham, capital improvement program manager for Broomfield. 

Design work is anticipated to be completed in Spring 2024. The intent is to close The Bay Aquatic Park for construction in August 2024, with the objective to reopen the Bay Aquatic Park in July 2025, to ensure a partial Summer 2025 season at The Bay.
