Canadian Nuclear Laboratories Contractor Management Trailer Complex

Contractor Management Trailer Complex

The proposed Project involves the site preparation and installation of a modular office trailer complex to support the newly formed Site Integration Office at Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), Chalk River site. 

Currently, these site integration services are conducted inside CNL's built up area in a variety of locations.  The purpose of this complex is to create a centralized local where the management of contractor activities, including site access and associated work controls, are conducted.   The physical activities associated with this project will occur on an existing Atomic Energy of Canada site, on approximately 1 acre of land previously disturbed by past facility operations and construction.  The project work involves the installation of a granular trailer pad and associated footings with minimal clearing of vegetation proposed along existing access routes. The trailer complex will be serviced by tying into existing facilities with the exception of a septic system that will be installed separately for the new complex.  The trailers will provide office space for approximately 25 staff members who will move from various work locations on the CRL main site, as well as the temporary accommodation of all new hires and contractors employed at this CNL location. 

The Chalk River Laboratories (CRL) site is owned by Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL), a Federal Authority under the Impact Assessment Act 2019 (IAA 2019).  Canadian Nuclear Laboratories Ltd is responsible for the management and operations of AECL's sites, including the CRL site, pursuant to a long-term contractual arrangement. To help inform a determination under section 82 of the IAA 2019 in relation to the construction of the Contractor Management Trailer Complex at the CRL site, CNL is inviting comments from the public.
