Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre

This three year renewal and rejuvenation project provided the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre with major infrastructure and “living quarter” upgrades. The facility had to remain operational during construction and involved complex building retrofits; Lundy developed an intricate phasing schedule designed to meet these requirements and minimize operational disruption. All construction logistics were closely coordinated with prison staff on an hour by hour basis.

Constructability Issues

  • The project contract underwent approximately 800 changes. Lundy documented and tracked every change, ensuring that the entire team understood the impact on the budget and schedule. 
  • The project was completed over 7 phases, each of which had to be completed before the next could be begun. Changes were made to the contract to accommodate the needs of the facility staff and operations, causing the phasing schedule to be altered during construction. Lundy oversaw these alterations to ensure that the coordination of the project did not suffer. 
  • Access to and from the building was carefully controlled by prison security personnel. Lundy had to plan entry to each work area at least 24 hours in advance and at times still could not be accommodated at the scheduled time due to prisoner transfers. The construction team had to adjust accordingly and moved the project forward despite only getting 4-6 hours of productivity per day.
