Sydney Steel Corporation Business Plan 2004-05 (continued)
Core Business Areas
SERL/Sysco will focus on the following six core business areas in
2004-2005. Together, they form an ambitious agenda to further the
Province of Nova Scotia's commitment to remediate and redevelop
the Sysco site for the benefit of Cape Bretoners and Nova Scotians.
By the end of 2005, the demolition of the Sysco is expected to be
between 80 and 90 per cent complete. The largest demolition projects
to be completed this year will be the EAF and universal mill buildings
following the removal of their equipment. The remaining structures
will be assessed for their ultimate removal or re-use in the new
site development plan.
Local Labour and Supplies
Overall, the commitment to using local labour for Sysco projects
throughout the site will continue for the duration of Sysco's mandate.
SERL/Sysco is also committed to continuing its practice of purchasing
local supplies and services whenever possible and feasible.
