Two pro­jects are par­ti­cu­lar­ly no­te­wor­thy at this time. The first, which al­rea­dy star­ted this spring, aims to com­ple­te­ly re­do the ou­ter shell of the po­wer plant buil­ding. The se­cond pro­ject be­gan in Ju­ly and aims to re­build an im­por­tant part of the tar­mac sur­roun­ding Han­gar 7. In the case of the ther­mal po­wer plant, about $ 4 mil­lion will main­ly be used to re­move much of the as­bes­tos used as in­su­la­tion, streng­the­ning the struc­ture of the buil­ding to meet new seis­mic stan­dards and re­doing the ex­te­rior clad­ding and fe­nes­tra­tion. If all goes as plan­ned, the work should be com­ple­ted be­fore win­ter. Al­fred Boi­vin Construc­tion com­pa­ny be­gan wor­king on Han­gar 7’ s tar­mac in midJu­ly. The contract is worth near­ly $ 10 mil­lion and the aim is to com­ple­te­ly re­do the struc­ture of the tar­mac in or­der to im­prove the slope sta­bi­li­ty. Buil­dings 223 and 59 ( single quar­ters) al­so need im­por­tant work. Near­ly $ 2.8 mil­lion has been in­ves­ted to im­prove the co­oling and hea­ting sys­tems in the two buil­dings. The ca­det camp has al­so re­cei­ved a sub­stan­tial sum of $ 200,000 to­wards as­phal­ting the ac­cess road and ma­king it lar­ger. A sum of $ 800,000 has al­so been in­ves­ted for the construc­tion of 25 houses re­pla­cing the tents used as ac­com­mo­da­tion. Other pro­jects that will soon be rea­li­zed in­clude the de­ve­lop­ment of a dog park and im­pro­ve­ments to the three play­grounds si­tua­ted in the re­si­den­tial hou­sing units ( RHU) sec­tor cos­ting $ 450,000. A com­mu­ni­ty gar­den lo­ca­ted near the new green­house will al­so be open next spring. On top of all these in­fra­struc­ture in­vest­ments, ano­ther $ 5.7 mil­lions will be spent on the construc­tion of 22 new RHU in the co­ming months. The com­pa­ny Lem- Tech Construc­tion de Can­ton- Trem­blay will build four buil­dings consis­ting of four units each and a mul­ti­plex of six RHU.
