Located in Kincardine, Ontario, Canada, the project will facilitate Bruce Power with an office complex and training centre for its nuclear refurbishment program.

A warehouse training space for the Bruce Power Major Component Replacement projects will be built.

Site services, a stormwater pond, and the extension of a municipal road into the site are included in the project.
