CNL begins work on new facilities

Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) says it has launched the construction process for three new facilities at its “Chalk River campus.”

The company says combined, the new facilities represent more than $100 million in new infrastructure.

“While renewal of our Chalk River site is already well underway, launching the construction process for three new state-of-the-art facilities is a major milestone in the realization of our long-term strategy,” Mark Lesinski, president and CEO of CNL, said in a statement.

“This is clearly an exciting time for CNL and our employees, but these capital projects will also have a positive impact on our communities, as we look to local businesses and contractors to help us carry out this work.”

CNL launched the first Request for Proposal (RFP) late last year, the initial step in the construction of the new buildings, which include a new logistics complex, a “business hub” and a support facility.

Once complete, CNL says the new buildings will serve as important “enabling” facilities for the site.
