Abstract
DRES Building 12, an obsolete structure containing underground lead-lined concrete vaults and a chemical laboratory facility, had been used since World War II for a variety of purposes, including the storage of radioactive and pesticide wastes, the synthesis of radioactive chemical warfare agents for research purposes, and as a site for training Canadian Forces personnel in nuclear, biological and chemical defence. A systematic approach was taken to remove chemical hazards and residual radiological contamination during the decommissioning of this building. The report describes the decontamination and decommissioning activities undertaken to ensure Building 12 could be safely demolished.
