Ottawa announces start of construction for 2 Halifax military projects
HALIFAX – The federal government has announced the start of construction on two military projects in Halifax.
The first project is a housing and training facility for the junior ranks at Canadian Forces Base Halifax.
Aecon and SLI have been awarded that contract for $64.8 million.
The second project, worth $6.1 million, is going to PCL Constructors Canada for a new armoury in Bedford.
That facility will be named after Maj. Robert Campbell Risley, a native of Sydney, N.S., who was the first commanding officer of 5 Provost Company in 1947.
That unit later became the modern-day 3 Military Police Regiment.
