Bluebird Investments is the contractor selected to build a new industrial and construction trades facility at the Grand Falls-Windsor campus of the College of the North Atlantic (CNA).
Education Minister Darin King made the announcement today.
"This new facility will improve student access to in-demand trade programs and support employment in central Newfoundland," King said in a news released.
The tender was awarded for $3.75 million to construct the 12,600 square-foot facility which will feature two multi-function shops - one focused on industrial trades and the other on construction trades. The building will also house a multi-function classroom and multimedia centre which can be used to provide training for construction managers, contractors and supervisors.
Bruce Hollett, CNA interim president, said the project will have a positive impact on student success at the campus and throughout the region.
"Students will experience active learning in multi-functional shops equipped with new equipment and technologies," he said. "The college, in turn, will be meeting current and future workforce demands for highly skilled tradespersons."
The $5.5 million project is a joint initiative of the federal and provincial governments, with a $2.75 million investment from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency through the Community Adjustment Fund, $1.375 million from the provincial government, and $1.375 million from CNA.
