Bruce Power provides low-cost, clean, reliable electricity to Ontario families and businesses. In fact, Ontario counts on Bruce Power to provide 30% of its electricity. Given its importance to the province’s energy supply, Bruce Power, is refurbishing six of its reactors through 2033. Beginning in 2020 with unit six, these refurbishment projects will extend the life of the Bruce Power site to 2064.
In December 2017, Concert Infrastructure secured the Bruce Power Office Complex and Training Facility project through a modified design, build, finance and maintain model. Located in Kincardine, Ontario, the new building will feature offices as well as unique technical training space that will support the Bruce Power Major Component Replacement projects, which ultimately form part of the Government of Ontario’s long-term energy plan.
“Since our beginning in 2010, Concert Infrastructure has sought to deliver critical public infrastructure assets to communities across Canada,” says Derron Bain, Vice President, Concert Infrastructure. “We’re excited to work with our partners to deliver this critical facility that supports Bruce Power’s reactor refurbishment program.”
Delivering on the project with design-build partner, Bird Construction Industrial Services Ltd., and Concert Realty Services Ltd., the team will also provide facilities management and lifecycle services for 25 years – commencing once construction is complete.
As of June 2018, the project was over half complete, with construction on track and set to be completed on-time in early 2019. The team is currently working to complete exterior landscape and civil works through the summer, as well as to seal the building for ongoing interior work during the final months of construction through Fall 2018.
