Total Construction Value: $100,000,000

EllisDon was awarded a significant construction management contract with the Royal Military College in Kingston. The project includes a complete upgrade to the building envelope and HVAC and electrical systems, including mechanical penthouse additions for six buildings. The existing exterior precast concrete panel and aluminum windows are being removed and replaced with a curtainwall system with structural steel seismic bracing added at each building face. Additionally there are upgrades to elevators, washrooms, IT systems, and communication rooms. Prior to the renovation work, 65,000 square feet of temporary swing space will be built to accommodate relocated laboratory and classroom facilities.
Kelson’s mechanical scope includes the following work:
- Upgrade the ventilation system
- Replace the perimeter building envelope and heating system
- Upgrade building controls and laboratory control systems
- Install new lab piping (gas, compressed air, deionized water, domestic water and acid waste)
One of the interesting challenges of the project is working around the nuclear reactor located at the school.
