CNL announces IPD team for Chalk River research centre

CHALK RIVER, ONT. — Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) has announced that an integrated project delivery (IPD) agreement is now in place for the design and construction of the Chalk River Laboratories’ new laboratory research complex, the Advanced Nuclear Materials Research Centre (ANMRC) in Chalk River, Ont.

Construction is scheduled to begin next year, stated a recent release. The ANMRC will be one of the largest nuclear research facilities ever constructed in Canada.

The project is part of a 10-year overhaul of the Chalk River campus, funded through a $1.2-billion allocation from Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, the owner of the site, on behalf of the federal government of Canada.

The IPD team leading the construction of the ANMRC includes CNL, Chandos Construction, Bird Construction, M. Sullivan & Son, Eclipse Automation, J2PG Consultants, Merrick & Company, Modern Niagara, MSE, Plan Group and Siemens.

“After an extensive validation phase, I’m very happy to announce that we have all the necessary organizations in place to move into the next stage of the design and construction of this exciting new research facility,” stated Joe McBrearty, CNL’s president and CEO, in a statement. “The revitalization of the Chalk River campus is designed to position CNL as a world leader in nuclear science and technology, and the ANMRC is at the centre of this vision. It will be constructed using a model where all participants work collaboratively with one another towards the same goals, and which maximizes the economic impact to local businesses.”

Among other projects at the campus, a new science collaboration centre recently began construction, a new industrial-use support facility was inaugurated, a new site entrance building was completed, and several science facilities have been opened over the last few years, including a new hydrogen laboratory complex, a new materials research laboratory and a new tritium research facility.
