OTTAWA, June 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Broccolini has broken ground on the newest Amazon fulfillment centre in Canada, set to be completed in 2021. Located within the CitiGate Corporate Business Park in Barrhaven, the new fulfillment centre will be the second in Ottawa. Broccolini’s expertise in fast-paced construction projects will help the project meet an anticipated 14-month construction deadline. Broccolini will hire technical experts from a wide range of fields to ensure timely project delivery, creating over 700 jobs at construction launch.
“We are excited to once again partner with Amazon and begin construction of a new, technologically-advanced fulfillment centre. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve trained our employees and set new protocols to ensure workers can do their jobs safely while respecting the latest health guidelines,” said James Beach, Director of Real Estate and Development at Broccolini in Ottawa. “Amazon will benefit from our considerable and diversified expertise to coordinate all development and construction aspects from the outset through to delivery, as well as our management experience that comes with our impressive portfolio of properties.”
Once completed, Broccolini will act as landlord and property manager for the new fulfillment centre.
