[5/15/2020] Canada: worksite staff on the Confederation Line Extension project support a community café

KEV (Kiewit, Eurovia, VINCI Construction) work teams, consisting of employees from the 3 partners collaborating on the Confederation Line Extension project – which calls for the development of Ottawa’s O-Train light-rail transit system – are supporting a solidarity drive led by a community café called Marcie’s and its owner, Jo-Ann.

The café is located near the consortium’s offices and was a popular spot with KEV employees. With the onset of COVID-19 pandemic, Jo-Ann had to close the café. Since doing so, she has been preparing meals and distributing them to the city’s most vulnerable and isolated residents as well as emergency-care staff who are in quarantine or self-isolation following their exposure to COVID-19.

KEV has encouraged employees to make a donation and devote a little of their time to help make deliveries and cook meals (while keeping safe by maintaining an appropriate distance from one another). In addition, the consortium has pledged to match the donations made by employees.

In April 2019, the City of Ottawa selected the KEV consortium, led by Kiewit (60%) and VINCI (40%) via its subsidiaries Eurovia, VINCI Construction Grands Projets, and Dodin Campenon Bernard, to build the Confederation Line Extension, one of two Phase 2 lines of Ottawa’s O-Train light-rail transit system. The contract calls for designing, building, and financing 27.5 kilometres of infrastructure to develop west and eastbound extensions for the Confederation Line.
