OTTAWA, May 21, 2015 /CNW/ – The Federal Bridge Corporation Limited announces that the construction of the new CBSA facilities, the next phase of the Canadian Plaza Redevelopment Project, is set to begin in June.
Works completed last year in the first phase of the project included the construction of the new Duty Free Building and maintenance garage. The demolition of the old Duty Free building has made way for the construction of the new traffic building, which will temporarily house both traffic and commercial operations while the new commercial building is built. A great deal of planning has gone into ensuring that impacts to the traffic flow and bridge operations are minimized during the construction process.
The contract for this construction phase was awarded to EllisDon who will perform the work as the general contractor, the designer of the entire plaza project continues to be the local architectural firm EPOH.
The work which is valued at $32.9 million, is funded through the Gateway and Border Crossings Fund and is anticipated to be completed by March of 2018.
