As part of the new Maison de Radio Canada, general contractor Broccolini Construction awarded Roxboro the civil engineering works linked to the construction of the site’s buildings and planning.

These works started in May 2017 and included the installation of retaining walls, site decontamination, large-scale excavation, backfill and laying of stone in preparation for the building construction. Also executed was the deviation of a main aqueduct that divided the lot in two with the construction of a new 1,200 mm diameter aqueduct conduit.

Part of the mandate also included site decontamination (30,000 t of excavated material) from which 9,000 t of the demolished concrete and pavement was reclaimed.

These works are set for completion in summer 2019 with the final touches of repairing the roadwork and outdoor drainage around the new building perimeter.
