The building is mainly used for sea scallop farming, as well as research and development of new mariculture products activities.

 

Features

Special conditions

As this building includes a vast seawater tank, the moisture levels inside the building are high, thus requiring the installation of Murox panels adapted to a humid environment, as well as moisture-resistant Barrier Series interior metal cladding.

Canam also installed interior partitions to separate sections of the building with moisture and temperature variations.

The building also includes a five-ton underhung crane.

Area: 31,200 ft.2 (2,900 m2)
