By STAFF REPORTConstruction Infrastructure
The Canadian government has awarded the joint venture of SNC-Lavalin Inc. and Aecon Atlantic Group with a $65-million contract to build a new housing and training facility for junior ranks personnel at Canadian Forces Base Halifax.
The project includes construction of a 12-storey tower with 300 new residence rooms for training, as well as dining and mess facilities, designed to LEED Silver standards.
SNC-Lavalin provided environmental, geotechnical and engineering design services for the facility under a previous contract. Once the facility design was delivered in February 2013, the fully integrated joint venture was awarded the construction component of the contract.
