An overhaul of the infrastructure inside the Daniel J. MacDonald building, which houses Veterans Affairs Canada in Charlottetown, is in the works.

Public Works and Government Services Canada has issued a tender seeking proposals from architects, energy, electrical and other mechanical specialists, to carry out the modernization inside the nearly 35-year-old building, which is on Grafton Street.
