Greely firm wins $16M Lansdowne contract

Ottawa firm D&G Landscaping has beat out three other qualified bidders to win the right to build the urban park that’s part of the City of Ottawa’s Lansdowne Park redevelopment project.

The Greely-based company will receive $16.28 million for its contribution to the project, which will include installing underground utilities and building a shuttle bus loop.

D&G submitted the lowest bid among the four companies who qualified, according to the City of Ottawa’s media relations department. That beat out Carillion Canada Inc., Doran Contractors Ltd. and the Ottawa Greenbelt Construction Co.

Elsewhere on the Glebe property, Frank Clair Stadium is currently being renovated and in some places rebuilt.

Local developer Minto is constructing new condo towers at the site while Trinity Development Group is getting ready to add close to 400,000 square feet of retail to the space. However news about one of the tenant’s exit from the movie industry has left one of the largest components of that space up in the air.

The firm is set to begin construction later this month, with a lot of the work will be done by spring 2014. D&G’s work is scheduled to be completed by summer of 2015, according to a City of Ottawa news release.
