Masset’s old hospital to be demolished

  • Feb. 10, 2014 8:00 a.m.

The old hospital building in Masset will be torn down and removed this spring, the Greater Massett Development Corp. has announced. Chair Andrew Merilees said the GMDC awarded the contract to demolish the building to Snaring River Holdings – Western Thermal and Demolition after a bid process. The GMDC received four qualified bids for the project. Snaring River’s bid was for $121,695, including GST. The old hospital was part of the CFS Masset complex and is located on Hodges Avenue. Mr. Merilees said the contractor expects to start working on the demolition in March, and that it will take about four weeks. Local residents and businesses will be provided with the opportunity to acquire materials from the building as the project progresses, he said. The recovered concrete is going to Old Massett for re-use. Snaring River has committed to hiring some equipment and labour from the local community, Mr. Merilees added.
