Sargent & Lundy is expanding its local operations and opening a second office location in Kincardine, which it will share with sub-contractor APTIM Services Canada Corp.
The office expansion is a result of a new agreement with Bruce Power to support its Life-Extension Program, which will allow the site to operate through 2064.
“Sargent & Lundy has been committed to helping Bruce Power achieve its goals since we first began working together in 2001, and we are pleased to have a new agreement with Bruce Power to enhance this relationship and expand our local presence,” said Delfo Bianchini, Sargent & Lundy’s Executive Vice President & Director of Nuclear Power. “We look forward to continuing to support Bruce Power and the local community as we move forward.”
Located at 807 Queen St., Kincardine, the office is directly adjacent to the existing office at 801 Queen St. The new office location will double Sargent & Lundy’s local footprint and employ an additional 20 engineering and construction professionals dedicated to Bruce Power.
“The long-term Asset Management Program is an important part of delivering our Life-Extension Program on time and on budget,” said John Soini, Bruce Power’s Executive Vice President of Finance and Commercial Services. “Sargent & Lundy’s expansion to support this program locally will create value-added, high-paying jobs in our communities and bring additional benefits for surrounding businesses and overall community economic development.”
Mitch Twolan, Warden of Bruce County, said it was just six months ago that Sargent & Lundy was welcomed into the region, when it opened its first local office.
“To see Sargent & Lundy already expand its footprint and create more local jobs is a demonstration of the important commitment Bruce Power suppliers are making in our region to establish a local presence and to continuously expand their local operations,” the Warden said.
