Structal-Heavy Steel Construction, a business unit of Canam Group Inc., has obtained a $23-million contract from Chardonnay Construction for the fabrication and erection of the structural steel that will be used in the construction of Phase 1 of the huge recreational and commercial complex Lac Mirabel, scheduled to open in the fall of 2009. Le Groupe Murray Frankel is the project manager for this mega-mall worth $1.2 billion on behalf of real estate developer Gordon Group Holdings of Greenwich, Connecticut.
The Lac Mirabel complex will occupy more than 2 million square feet (185,807 m2) and will be erected on a 330-acre property to the west of the Laurentian Autoroute (Highway 15) in Mirabel.
The structural steel components required for this project will be fabricated at Canam Group’s Quebec-based St. Gdon and Boucherville plants. Work is slated to begin in April 2008 and end by late December 2008. The Technyx business unit, specialized in the provision of engineering services, will also participate in this project from its offices in Boucherville, St. Georges and Brasov in Romania.
