    Lindsay Construction Limited

    Parks Canada Agency (PCA) is seeking Construction Services to carry out site work of our proposed Trout Brook campground. In 2015 a major flooding event triggered landslides and river breaches in the Cheticamp River watershed, causing substantial damage in the Cheticamp Lower Campground which had to be completely evacuated along with the Upper Campground. A study from Stantec Consulting Ltd. concluded that the decommissioning of the lower campground and the development of a new campground offer at a lower risk, needed to be done. Trout Brook was picked as that location, offering spectacular views and hopes of a great camping experience for what is being seen as a rise in camping popularity.

    The project is well under way with this phase being the last of what will follow - the opening of a brand new, eco-friendly campground, adjacent to the world famous Cabot Trail. The project has seen different phases of work – Phase 1 site work of waterlines, sewer lines and septic field, campsites, well and water treatment building, phase 2 of buildings shells and interior finishes. The final stage consists of the installation of a solar powered electrical system, final grading of parking lots and access roads, trail and pedestrian bridge ocean access, site exit stairs and landscaping.
