Company Overview:
A division of VINCI Construction Grands Projets, JANIN ATLAS is an industry leader in the construction of major heavy civil and building projects.

VINCI Construction Grands Projets is itself a subsidiary of VINCI, a world-class leader in construction and concession projects which employs more than 183 000 people in over a hundred countries.

JANIN ATLAS undertakes design-build projects, turn-key projects, as well as more traditional build-only projects, all with a high degree of technical difficulty. We are specialized in the construction of complex projects such as bridges, major highway infrastructure or large-diameter tunnels, all of which require important management and coordination resources.
Our projects are characterized by innovative contractual solutions: Partnerships, ECI (Early Contractor Involvement), FEED (Front-End Engineering Design) and EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction).

We also offer extensive experience in multiple project financing solutions (BOT, DBFOT, PPP, Concessions).

Project Overview:
The Confederation Line Extension Project - one of the components of the City of Ottawa Stage 2 O-Train system – includes the design, construction and financing of 27,5kilometres of light rail infrastructure. The scope of work also includes 4 kilometres of cut-and cover tunnels, 20 engineered structures, 16 stations and a light maintenance service facility.

When complete, Stage 2 will bring 77 percent of residents within five kilometres of rail transportation. It will greatly enhance the quality of life in Ottawa, contributing to shorter commutes, cleaner air and a stronger economy. It will also help the city prepare for continued growth, with a population that is expected to reach 1.1 million by 2031.

In April 2019, Kiewit-Eurovia-VINCI (KEV) was selected to design, build and finance the project. Construction is anticipated to be complete for the Confederation Line East extension in 2024 and in 2025 for the Confederation Line West extension.
