Completion of the $7 million window and cladding replacement has been pushed back to the end of the year according to city staff.
Originally, the project was to take a year by general contractor Cy Rheault Construction Ltd. of Timmins who began the work in June of 2018. The project was to be completed by summer 2019.
It’s nowhere near done.
SaultOnline.com / ONNtv reached out to the city for comment. Our request for comment has not been answered as of yet.
We want to know, does this mean there’s a cost over run on the project? Will there be any new contractors brought in to assist with the project and if so, where are they from? Was any local contractors allowed to bid on the project?
To date, some glazing with waterproofing, membrane application and framing is complete on some of the floors.
CORRECTION: An employee working for Cy Rheault Construction Ltd. contacted SaultOnline.com to advise it was a sub-contractor hired by the firm which was terminated. Employees of Cy Rheault Construction Ltd. were on site as of today working on the project.
