Work officially launched at Kuujjuaq airport
Last week, Transport Canada announced the start-up of work on Kuujjuaq’s new terminal and the expansion of the public parking area around the airport.
“These efforts will allow the airport to have more modern facilities, ensuring high levels of safety and security,” says a news release from Transport Canada.
Two construction contracts worth $11.4 million have been awarded to Laval Fortin-Adams, a joint-venture company formed by Laval Fortin and former Kativik Regional Government president and pilot, Johnny Adams.
The company will receive:
* $2.4 million for expanding the airport apron area, including the public parking lot;
* $8.8 million for building the new 1,225 square-metre terminal, which will be a certified “Green Building,” under the Canadian Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design system.
Work is set to end in the fall of 2007.
