Kelson is pleased to announce that it will be providing mechanical services on the new Thunder Bay Correctional Complex (“TBCC”).  The facility will be one of the largest and most technologically advanced infrastructure projects ever built in Ontario.  The new facility will update automation and technology to address issues of health, safety and security. This includes the introduction of efficiencies related to design, technology, and the use of space, specifically:

-Behavioural and Mental Health housing options;
-Improved programming and health care services in units;
-Indigenous design and artifacts; and
-Better access to natural light and outdoor spaces.
