Project Profile

  • National Research Council

    Maintenance Services across 98 buildings

    Advancing the frontiers of scientific and technical knowledge. This is the mandate of the National Research Council (NRC), which was established in 1916 in support of these research efforts.

    Headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario, the NRC is distributed across three campuses and three satellite locations within the region. These structures host nearly 3,500 NRC employees including scientists, researchers, engineers, administrators, and support staff. An operation of this size requires a comprehensive facilities maintenance program that keeps on ticking, and since 2003 our team has been on the job.
