Sir John Carling West Annex Demolition

The Sir John Carling (SJC) Main building and East Annex were demolished in 2014.  The SJC West Annex was left intact.  The building has been vacant since 2009 and it has recently been determined that it must undergo full demolition.  The West Annex is on the future site of The Ottawa Hospital and it has been determined that it cannot be used in the development of the new hospital.

The project will consist of full deconstruction with no rebuild, and include decommissioning, removal of all demolition debris off site and reinstatement of the site.  A temporary access road from Prince of Wales Drive to the site will be constructed as part of the deconstruction project.

The building contains asbestos, mould, and phenol-containing water. Prior to, and throughout the demolition activities, the West Annex must undergo a full dewatering plan. 

The comment period has now ended.
