The provincial government has announced that construction has started for a first-of-its-kind flight training centre for water bomber aircraft in Sault. Ste. Marie.
Orillia-based Quinan Construction Ltd. has won the contract to build the 6,700 sq. ft. structure and has hired local businesses McLeod Bros. Mechanical Inc., Phase 4 Electrical Contractor Ltd. And Avery Construction Ltd. for support.
The project will create 14 jobs, an Ontario government news release said. The news release did not disclose the project’s value.
“The building’s steel structure will be erected this summer and the flight training device will be installed in the fall,” the news release says. “The facility is scheduled for completion by the 2013 fire season.”
