Installation of Fire Suppression Infrastructure at Rideau Hall

The National Capital Commission (NCC) is proposing the installation of services to support fire suppression equipment at Rideau Hall in Ottawa, Ontario.


The proposed project will take place on lands owned by the National Capital Commission (NCC) and is subject to a federal land use, design, and real estate transaction approval under the National Capital Act.


The project involves both interior and exterior work. Finishes and landscaping impacted by the project will be replaced like for like. One tree will require removal. Some additional asphalt paving will be included to improve the condition of the roadway.


The construction area will be accessed with machines and equipment, and all work areas will be fenced accordingly. Construction is set to begin in spring 2023, with a completion date of fall 2023. Construction work will follow all municipal by-laws, including those related to noise. The project will be submitted to the Federal Heritage Building Review Office (FHBRO) for review. Recommendations from the FHBRO will be incorporated into the project.
