Water infiltration, concrete 'honeycombing' part of rectified defects at Rideau Station

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, February 12, 2019

Inspectors looking for construction snafus in Ottawa’s largest infrastructure project found water infiltration, drainage glitches and concrete defects at the Rideau LRT station last year, city records reveal.

The city recently released 25 more “non-conformance” reports to researcher Ken Rubin under access-to-information law. They are the same kind of inspection records whose details were reported by this newspaper last month and in August 2018. A ruling last year by the province’s information and privacy commissioner compelled the city and RTG, the project’s builder, to release the reports.
