WINNIPEG – Another project built by Caspian Construction is under investigation by the RCMP.
Mounties have confirmed the commercial crimes section is looking into the construction of the Canada Post mail processing plant on Wellington Avenue.
The facility near the airport was built by Caspian in 2010.
The same company was hired by the city to build the new Winnipeg Police Headquarters.
In 2014, a search warrant was executed at Caspian Construction’s offices on McGillivray.
RCMP allege Caspian manipulated documents in order to inflate payments on the police headquarters, which opened in 2016, 75 million dollars over budget.
In an email to Global News, the RCMP say they cannot provide further details as it is part of an ongoing investigation.
No charges have been laid and none of the allegations have been proven in court.
