This project consisted of the design-build construction of an autoport depot at the CN Rail’s McMillan yard.  The work completed included the design of structures, erection of the pre-engineered building and an office building/autoport complete with necessary electrical, plumbing, HVAC, partitions, roofing, fixtures and finishes, erection of a guardhouse and security gate, construction of full sized tractor trailer scales, approach ramps, scale house and traffic lights complete, and construction of necessary concrete pads, ramps, curbs and sidewalks.

Over the course of the project, as the needs of the client changed, DeMan worked with both CN, as well as AECOM, the project management company, to ensure that the requests were met and that the over schedule of the project was maintained.

Over the course of approximately one year, DeMan worked CPR with Toronto Locomotive Reliability Centre project, which included the renovation and retrofitting of two existing shops at their McCowan Yard, over the course of two phases.

Canadian Pacific Railway Grand Opening

​In Phase 1, DeMan completed major building renovations as well as a building addition on the existing wheel, Truck Shop and SBI facility. Work completed including building exterior retrofit, major electrical and mechanical work, including a new refuelling station, as well as all required concrete, railway, and finishing work.

CP Railway Finished Structure

At the end phase 1, DeMan begun Phase 2, which centred on the renovation and building addition of the nearby diesel Shop. Work completed was similar, including an exterior retrofit, major concrete, rail, metal, electrical and mechanical work as well as installation and modifications to existing craning systems.

Completion of Canadian Pacific Railway

DeMan was also able to make recommendations for specifications alternatives that, while meeting or exceeding the project design requirements, the alternatives saved CPR tens of thousands of dollars over the course of both construction and post-construction maintenance.

The complexity of the work completed was high, and was increased by the tight scheduling required for the projects. Equipment from the second building had to be installed in the first in order to re-open the facility, however, the equipment could not be unavailable for any extended period of time. DeMan worked closely with CPR’s head office and on-site staff as well as CP’s equipment installation contractors to ensure that the project proceeded smoothly and on schedule over the year long period.
