The Winnipeg Airport Authority (WAA) broke ground on a 96,000 square foot multi-use building on Monday morning that will save the city’s airport time and money, the WAA’s boss said.
“Today is about an investment to get ready for what comes next. It’s about taking advantage of the next opportunity,” said Barry Rempel, president and CEO of WAA. “It is actually not just about the building, but it’s about what this facility will then enable.”
The brand new Ground Services Equipment (GSE) Building will be the newest addition to the Winnipeg Richardson International Airport. The GSE Building will house the majority of machinery and vehicles that are used at the airport such as ‘Tugs’ to tow and reposition airplanes, belt loaders to move cargo, and refrigeration trucks to load food onto the planes.
