Martello Tower Electrical Repair - Royal Military College of Canada

The Department of National Defence (DND) has proposed a project which aims to replace the existing electrical line to Martello Tower, located at the Royal Military College of Canada. The Fort Frederick Martello Tower is a classified federal heritage building, because of its historical associations and its architectural and environmental significance. The old connection is unserviceable due to a burnt-out electrical box. The work will include exposure of the existing line from the manhole to the electrical box at the base of the tower. The excavation will allow the new wiring to be installed between the electrical box and manhole. The work is in an archaeologically sensitive area and the project will include the oversight of an archaeologist for excavations. The excavated portions will be restored with topsoil and grass seed to re-establish the areas natural flora and fauna.
