New regional OPP detachment building construction starts in Little Current



As reported in the Manitoulin Expositor, construction started on the new Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) detachment in Little Current on April 1 as part of the OPP modernization project.

“The contract was signed in August with Bird Construction, which will be building all nine detachments. They will start construction as site conditions allow,” said Cary Mignault, special advisor in the stakeholder relations and communications department of Infrastructure Ontario.

As has been previously reported, nine new OPP detachments are being built across Ontario alongside regional command centres and forensic identification units. All told, 18 facilities will be built and all will meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification.

“April 1 was our first day on-site and we’ve started laying things out,” said project superintendent Michael Sweeney of Collaborative Structures Limited, a subcontractor for Bird Construction.

He said much of the materials for the various projects have been purchased as a group from a single supplier to secure better rates, including the buildings’ HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems that will be standardized across the sites.

In Little Current, Belanger Construction is on-site beginning work to prepare the property. Mr. Sweeney said the 10,000 to 12,000 square foot facility is projected to be completed by late summer in 2020.
