Mississauga design and construction management company Maple Reinders Constructors Ltd. has won a $29 million waste water plant contract from the federal government.
“Construction of the wastewater treatment plant will benefit the regional economy and create a significant number of direct and indirect jobs,” Minister of Natural Resources Joe Oliver said in a statement.
The plant is located at the site of the planned long-term, low-level radioactive waste management facility in Port Granby, about 30 kilometres east of Oshawa.
Surface and groundwater will be treated during construction of the waste management facility as well as contaminated water from within the engineered aboveground mound once it is built.
Work is expected to begin in early spring and be completed in about two years.
In addition to this project, Maple Reinders also shared an existing contract for the $200 million expansion of Peel Region’s Lorne Park Water Treatment Plant expansion in Mississauga’s Jack Darling Park.
The other contracting company was Mississauga’s Kenaidan Contracting Ltd. The project was expected to be completed last year.
There may be an opportunity for Maple Reinders to bid for two new contracts located nearby. The first is a planned upgrade for the Oakville water purification plant worth an estimated $84 million. The second is an expansion project for the Skyway Wastewater Treatment Plant in Burlington.
Headquartered on Argentia Road in Mississauga, Maple Reinders Constructors Ltd was founded in 1967 and now employs more than 400 across Canada.
