When looking for new premises we were looking for a commercial space, centrally located, competitively priced, and a Landlord who was willing to work with us to meet our needs. The Charlottetown Airport Authority has exceeded our expectations. As an Emergency Response Team we required certain changes to the building and the standard contract. The Airport Authority Officers were easily accessible and it was clear from the outset that they had a genuine interest in meeting our needs. We are looking forward to a long relationship with the Airport Authority.
Soils reports have indicated that the subsurface encountered may be summarized as 0.7 to 1.0 m (average 0.8 m) of existing fill/rootmat/topsoil that overlies a competent native till soil. Neither bedrock nor the groundwater table were encountered within the depth investigated.
The conditions encountered are considered to be favorable for site development and building construction. Site preparation for proposed buildings and parking areas would require the removal of the existing fill/rootmat/topsoil and the subsequent placement of structural fill up to the required subgrade level. Pit-run sandstone (Select Borrow) is typically utilized as structural fill on PEI and is available in close proximity to the airport property.
