Robert says of the contract win; "We are thrilled to have been awarded this prestigious three-year contract after a competitive tender process. Worth more than $500,000, the work will help to strengthen and preserve one of Canada's best known regional seats of Government."

He concludes: "Test anchors have already been installed to ensure that CINTEC's anchoring system is compatible with the structure of the building .The work will start once the weather improves."

Peter James, Managing Director of CINTEC, adds; "This new contract demonstrates, once again, how versatile and sustainable our anchoring system is. Every project we undertake around the world has different requirements and we produce a tailor-made solution which satisfies our client's specific needs. Robert and his team are to be congratulated on yet another very important contract."
