Chandos is part of two separate Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) teams, designing and constructing three new buildings and a research centre at Canadian Nuclear Laboratories Ltd.’s (CNL) Chalk River Laboratories facility. The new buildings are non-nuclear and will include a business hub, main gate, and logistics warehouse as well as a support facility. This project will deliver a robust and reliable addition to the existing Chalk River Laboratories campus that will house essential business functions and increase efficient business delivery in the future at Canada’s premier science and technology facility. The business hub will improve productivity, efficiency, morale, and site safety by creating space for approximately 400 employees. Support facilities and amenities include a data centre, library, central records, health and wellness centre, flexible auditorium, and shared meeting spaces.
The Advanced Nuclear Materials Research Center (ANMRC) will be the backbone of CNL's research and development infrastructure and will be essential in the delivery of nuclear science and technology programs. This project will house a modern laboratory and research complex. It will prove to be the largest active research facility in Canada and will allow for world-class research in nuclear energy and environmental research.
Construction of these projects will be part of the planned 10-year transformation at the Chalk River site. This includes the revitalization of infrastructure, decommissioning of ageing buildings and investment in a world-class research facility. Support facilities and amenities include a data centre, library, central records, health and wellness centre, flexible auditorium, and shared meeting spaces. The support facility will enable CNL to provide uninterrupted preventive and corrective maintenance support, improve maintenance and work management, improve staff productivity and efficiency, and reduce the risk of equipment failure. The state-of-the-art research centre will transform this site and will serve as a state-of-art laboratory to grow research and knowledge. The investment into the renewal of infrastructure will help deliver world-class nuclear science and technology offerings for years to come.Back to projects
