Le Vortex de Bagotville - - MOT COMMANDANT -

The construc­tion pro­ject of the new buil­ding that will conso­li­date ser­vices of the Trans­port sec­tion and the Elec­tri­cal and Me­cha­ni­cal En­gi­nee­ring sec­tion’s ( EME) ser­vices has just rea­ched a new mi­les­tone with the launch of the call for pu­blic bids.

The new buil­ding is ex­pec­ted to cost near­ly 50 mil­lion dol­lars to build and work could be­gin as ear­ly as this fall. The work is ex­pec­ted to last thir­ty months. Ac­cor­ding to Ma­jor Carl Gra­vel, com­man­der of Ba­got- ville’s real es­tate tran­sac­tions de­tach­ment, a bud­get for this pro­ject is al­so in­clu­ded in the 2016- 2017 fi­nan­cial year en­ding March 31st, 2017. "We ex­pect that the contrac­tor who gets the contract will want to start as soon as pos­sible. A sum has al­rea­dy been re­ser­ved to start the pro­ject this year, "says Maj Gra­vel. This new buil­ding will re­place four buil­dings ( 76, 102, 122, Han­gar 2), most of which were built in the 50’ s and 60’ s. These buil­dings will be de­mo­li­shed and the units will be mo­ved in the new buil­ding.
