The Minister of National Defence is undertaking new infrastructure projects amounting to over $200 million to modernize facilities at Canadian Forces Base Borden in Ontario.
The Department of National Defence holds a large number of properties all across the country, including some 21,000 buildings, 2.25 million hectares of land, 5,500 km of roads, and 3,000 km of water, storm, and sewer pipes.
Among the new projects announced for CFB Borden are upgrades to the Intrusion Detection System, a $4.5 million program that has been awarded to Smith Carter Architects and Engineers.
The other projects are still to be awarded and will soon be posted on MERX:
— Construction of a CF Military Police Academy
This project will provide one replacement facility for the current Military Police Academy Headquarters and four other structures.
The consolidated facility will consist of a central core comprised of the Library and Heritage hall, plus three wings housing lecture rooms, practical training areas and forensic identification facilities. Office areas will be along the main entrance and the faculty office will be on the second level.
It is anticipated that construction of the Military Police Academy will begin in 2012. The overall value of this project is approximately $49.4 million.
— Construction of Cambrai Road Quarters
This project will construct a new training quarters building of 18,000 m2. The new training quarters will provide 320 beds spaces.
It is anticipated that construction of the new training quarters will begin in 2012. The overall value of this project is approximately $57.8 million
— Canadian Forces School of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Consolidation Project
This project will involve the construction of a new 13, 292 m2 consolidated building which will effectively and efficiently accommodate the Canadian Forces School of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering.
It is anticipated that construction of the new school will begin in 2013. The overall value of this project is approximately $77.8 million.
— Consolidation of Canadian Forces Recruiting Group Headquarters. The existing Canadian Forces Recruiting Group Headquarters is currently housed in three buildings at CFB Borden, one of which is a trailer that was installed in 2003 as a temporary measure to address shortage of space. The existing buildings are aging and outdated, and no longer used as originally intended. The recruiting group will become much more efficient once accommodated in purpose built office infrastructure. It is anticipated that construction of the new CF Recruiting Group Headquarters will begin in spring of 2012. The overall value of this project is approximately $13.75 million
