The construction project is on schedule and has already started
The construction of the main facility is scheduled for next summer. In the meantime, we have to build the access road, parking and underground power line in order to be ready for 2020. Gely Construction was contracted to manage this specific project and has started their work since the end of July. The construction should be completed in early October.
The first fourplex to lodge employees will be built in the new town area of Kuujjuaq. The pad was completed during the last week of June by the Northern Village of Kuujjuaq. Kautaq Construction has started construction work and the building shall be made available for Isuarsivik staff sometimes in January or February 2020.
As for the two other fourplexs, the municipal council approved the derogation –on June 26th to zoning regulation to allow construction along the access road. Nayumivik Landholding of Kuujjuaq has already issued construction permits and geotechnical studies that will be completed during the summer to determine best construction method for both pads. Construction work is planned to commence in the summer 2020 and be completed by January 2021.
Besides Gely Construction, we also feel privileged to count amongst our construction partners SNC-Lavalin for civil engineering, EVOQ for architecture matters, NCK for structure expertise and BPA for electricity and mechanic knowledge.
