Burnt Cedar Swimming Pool Improvements Project – 3970BD2601

A 2021 Capital Improvement and Board of Trustees Priority Project, this project will reconstruct the two (2) existing pools (full size and toddler) at Burnt Cedar Beach, which were originally constructed in 1968.

This project requires complete closure of the pool and pool deck for the entire 2021 season, but residents can still enjoy use of the beach, picnic areas, and bar amenities at the site during construction.

The new pool will be wider, to accommodate an additional 6th swim lane. The orientation of the pool has been modified to showcase the site’s incredible Tahoe views. Kids are sure to spend hours enjoying the pool slide, and the wading pool will be very popular with its new fun water feature. The renovations will provide a modern, quality facility for Incline Village that will also include a raised terrace for dining and a new pedestrian path connecting the west parking area to the sandy beach and picnic areas.

Design of the pool was completed in early 2021, with a design team including TSK Architects, Aquatics Design Group, RCI, Inc., Design Workshop, Nelson-Wilcox Structural Engineers and MSA, Inc.

CORE West, Inc. was selected as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) and mobilized to the site to start work on May 3, 2021. Construction is on schedule, with all outside work currently buttoned up for the winter season. The contractor will return mid-January to continue working on piping and equipment installation inside the mechanical room.

Completion is on track for June 2022, just in time for residents and their guests to enjoy the new facility for the summer season.
