BioVectra’s API facility at the Airport Business Park is optimally located for our manufacturing operations. While our location is secluded enough from Charlottetown’s urban encroachment allowing for both expansion and unhindered operation, it is at the same time, only a few minutes to downtown which makes meeting and entertaining clients very effortless.
The convenience of essentially being on the Trans-Canada and adjacent to the only commercial airport in Prince Edward Island increases our efficiency in providing high quality services and products to our global customer base. The Charlottetown Airport Authority has made significant infrastructure investments in the business park, benefitting both current and future tenants. They are fully committed to the growth and success of the Airport Business Park.

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.
