EllisDon to design the Future Fighter Capability Project Fighter Squadron Facility at 3 Wing Bagotville


EllisDon is pleased to announce that on 28 September 2020, it was awarded a contract to design the Fighter Squadron Facility (FSF) at 3 Wing Bagotville, Quebec, in partnership with EBC, Jodoin Lamarre Pratte architectes and Stantec.

Located in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region, 3 Wing is one of two major bases of operations for Canada's future fighter aircraft.The Bagotville FSF will will cover over 30 000 m2. This facility will provide space for daily operations, aircraft maintenance, administration, mission planning, and simulator training.Designed and constructed to be Net-Zero Carbon and to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standard, the new facilities will also support Canada's climate objectives. Construction is expected to begin in 2022. The facility will include operational headquarters for personnel, state-of-the-art security, training and information technology (“IT”), as well as support spaces that will ensure the long-term maintenance and operational capabilities.This contract, under a consortium between EllisDon and EBC Inc. will be carried out in Modified Design-Build mode, which combines the advantages of the design-build mode while allowing a more iterative process between the design-builder and the client.Photo provided by envato elementsLicense code: YN9ZLP45S2
