GREENSBORO, N.C. — The pool at Grimsley High School will be undergoing three months of repairs soon after engineers found several structural problems.

The engineering firm Sutton-Kennerly and Associates said two walls are unstable, and three support columns need to be stabilized.

The city will pay a Greensboro company $210,000 to make repairs to the pool. The company plans to start the repairs this month and expects repairs to take three months to complete.

The repairs will allow the building to remain structurally sound for several years while a permanent solution is determined, city officials said.

Down the road, the roof needs about $30,000 in repairs done to it, city officials said. However, contractors can’t access the roof to analyze the damage until the building is stabilized, city officials said.
