Federal contracts: Johnson Controls lands $3M job to maintain government chillers in Ottawa


The local office of global building systems operator Johnson Controls has received a $2.98 million federal contract to maintain the chillers used to cool dozens of buildings across Ottawa.

The deal job covers the Department of Defence’s national headquarters at 101 Colonel By Dr. as well as the Cliff Central Heating and Cooling Plant. The latter feeds into a distribution system in Ottawa-Gatineau that serves some 50 buildings and about 50,000 employees, including those working in prominent buildings such as the U.S. Embassy and those in the Parliamentary precinct.

The job was the largest federal contract, standing offer or supply arrangement awarded to a local business between July 31 and Aug. 6:
