$40.5 million defence contracts awarded
Carillion Pacific Construction Ltd. of Vancouver, B.C. has been awarded a $40.5 million contract for two defense infrastructure upgrades.
New construction and upgrades to the Seaforth Armoury in Vancouver will cost $9.3 million, including a retrofit and seismic upgrades.
The remaining $31.2 million is for the construction of a new Canadian Armed Forces building. It includes the relocation of the Jericho Beach Armoury and will serve as the headquarters for 39 Canadian Brigade Group.
The four-storey building will also accommodate a variety of support organizations and will be adjoined by a three-level elevated parking space for military and personal vehicles.
“These projects will increase the efficiency of 39 Canadian Brigade Group and upgrade existing facilities, in order to meet the demanding requirements of the Canadian Armed Forces and will improve the operational effectiveness of the Canadian Army,” said Defence Minister Rob Nicholson.
