PUBLIC CONSULTATION MEETING SCHEDULED ON ZOOM FOR DEMOLITION OF OLD ADMIN 2 BUILDING
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s Department of Housing & Infrastructure (DHI) along with Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) will be hosting a public consultation Zoom meeting to inform and engage the community on the upcoming demolition of the former Administration 2 building at 92 Third Street, Kana:takon (St. Regis). The building was the former location of Mohawk Government and offices of the chiefs. It was vacated in 2014 due to poor air quality and building conditions.
On behalf of Indigenous Services Canada (ISC), PWGSC is procuring the service required for abatement and demolition. The scope of services includes:
- Complete demolition and disposal of the Admin 2 Building, including foundations.
- Removal and lawful disposal of hazardous materials and designated substances identified in the Designated Substances Survey.
- Related locating, identification, disconnection and seal or cap off of utilities serving the building being demolished.
- Site restoration including uniformly site grading of demolished construction to a smooth surface, rough grading of below grade areas and ensuring smooth transitioning between existing grading and proposed grade.
The tendering process is currently being finalized with the abatement and demolition of the building expected to take place this summer and fall of 2020.
The community is invited to attend a video or audio Zoom meeting to receive information about the overall demolition and present any questions live to staff from MCA and PWGSC.
