Installation of a Portable Storage Container Compound at the Technical and Protective Operations Facility (TPOF)

The project consists of the construction of a portable storage container compound in Ottawa, Ontario. It will require clearing of an existing previously disturbed and now overgrown greenfield area in the south east sector of the Technical and Protective Operations Facility (TPOF) site. It will be a fenced compound enclosing an open air facility within which, pre-fabricated storage containers (similar in appearance to a sea-tainer) will be placed. The compound will be divided in to 4 quadrants by free standing walls. The compound will have a secure perimeter fence and will require vehicle access by means of a new paved lane to ensure 24/7 access.
