Project Overview

Project Description:
Work under this contract consists of, but not necessarily limited, to supply, ship and erect construction of six (6) Five-Plexes in the Hamlet of Naujaat, Nunavut. The civil work includes removal topsoil before the construction and new backfill for parking with natural gravel and 1000m3 of crushed gravel. For the crushed gravel, we will have to dynamite in the quarry and crush the rock. The work will take place within the existing quarry. The amount of gravel being minimal, no expansion of the quarry will be necessary. In addition, given the small amount of rock to be blasted, an aircraft will be chartered for the delivery of the dynamite and no storage of explosive will be required on site. The work will take place over one or two days.
