Renovations are still ongoing at the Fort Saskatchewan curling rink.
The $5-million dollar project is facing the effects of winter, as crews try and seal up the walls whle they still can.
Some of the new renovations to the Fort Saskatchewan Golf and Curling Club include new change rooms, a kitchen and a lounge area.
So far, the steel structure is complete and the roof and floor decking has been installed.
"They're currently working on the roof membranes themselves. Once they're those are done they'll start closing in the building and then they can start the interior," said Grant Schaffer, director of project management for the City of Fort Saskatchewan.
Contractors are projecting the job to be complete in March.
"It's pretty early in the project to say that's exactly when it will be done, but that's their projection at this point," added Schaffer.
