The construction work planned for this year includes:
● Installation of storm, sanitary and water servicing.
● Installation of piping for the district energy sharing system.
● Stage 1 local road construction.
● Drilling boreholes under the first stormwater pond for the geo-exchange, which is one of the renewable energy sources for the district energy sharing system.
In addition to the construction work, recycling of the former runways is also underway at the site. The runway materials (concrete, asphalt and gravel) will be used to construct future roads in the community. The Blatchford Redevelopment Office and the Blatchford Renewable Energy Utility are also continuing with extensive planning, engineering and design work this year.
