The Ottawa Transit Commission “OC Transpo” was embarking on an ambitious plan to create a crosstown electrified Light Rapid Transit system. The Ottawa LRT system showcases important historical and cultural moments of the National Capital region and carries a significant number of passengers each day.
Contor Building Systems, in partnership with Siemens Energy Canada and Kiewit Construction, designed and built the Electrical Protection and Control building for the Confederation Line Extension Project Traction Power Substation.
We’re helping commuters get to work and school on time, and allowing visitors to Canada’s Capital region remember the many wonderful attractions in Ottawa, rather than being stuck in traffic or lost in the myriad of one-way streets in downtown Ottawa.
We are helping ensure Ottawa’s LRT system uptime and worker and passenger safety by working closely with customers and stakeholders to design a prefabricated steel building to house medium-voltage protection and control equipment for the LRT system.
Leonardo Environment Canada
Environment Canada needed to upgrade their weather radar system network as the old system was becoming outdated and was experiencing difficulty in responding to fast-forming weather emergencies, such as tornados.
Contor Building Systems, in partnership with Leonardo Germany, designed and built the Ground and Tower equipment steel buildings for the upgraded weather stations.
These buildings shelters are designed and built to withstand the rigours of harsh weather conditions that exist at the higher elevations where the weather stations are located across Canada.
Now, automated weather precipitation reports are delivered twice as fast as before and the sophisticated meteorological equipment is protected from whatever Mother Nature can throw at it inside of the custom steel buildings built by Contor Building Systems!
