LimogesThe Limoges Lagoon project will cost The Nation Municipality an extra $28,280, bringing the total cost of the project to over $400,000. According to a report presented the municipality’s council, “due to the additional scope and effort on the design and approvals phases for the Limoges Lagoon project, R.V. Anderson has requested an increase of the engineering budget.”

The additional amount requested on behalf of R.V. Anderson Associates Limited was $25,027 plus HST, notably $16,697 for “Additional Work by the Structural Group” and $8,330 for “Additional ECA Approval Effort.”

As noted in the request to council, the professional fees for the $7-million project now total $393,337 (not including taxes). It is noted that at 5.6% of the estimated capital cost of $7 million for the project, “this is a very industry-competitive percentage and well below the recommended percentages.”

The 7 November request was approved by The Nation Municipality at their 12 November 2018 council meeting.
