Design & Construction Services


Construction Section Construction


Construction Services falls under Transportation & Public Works.  The role of Construction Services is to administer and inspect most capital projects approved by the Regional Council.

The Construction Services section plays a unique role within the Municipality because of its overall responsibility in translating design and specifications of a significant component of HRM's Capital Budget into final project reality within a high profile and pressured environment.

Construction Services provides the following services:

  1. We administer and inspect HRM's capital program. See 2014 HRM Capital Works Projects for an up to date listing. For an explanation of various project types administered by Construction Services see Projects.
  2. We also inspect, on HRM's behalf, projects which are the responsibility of those noted below but affect HRM's property.

Construction Services receives numerous requests and inquiries. Many of these are related to information and projects we administer and track regulary. Other requests are of a more specific or complex nature and must be researched before an answer can be given.

To help with the common requests we've outlined what our department is involved with on a daily basis:

  • Approved Capital Construction Projects

          2012 Capital Works (Last Updated February 2013)

          2013 Capital Works (Last Updated Nov 2013)

          2014 Capital Works ( Last Updated April 2014)


  • Maps of HRM regions. These outline the limits of each of the regions including the core.

Construction staff for West District, East District and Central District are located in the Eric Spicer Building at 21 Mount Hope Avenue in Dartmouth.
