Kieran Lightfoot (CVL '03)
Kieran Lightfoot is a Coordinator for Construction Services with Defence Construction Canada (DCC) at the 8 Wing, Canadian Forces Base Trenton. There, he is involved in the coordination and management of many construction projects.
Kieran and the DCC work directly with, and for, the Department of National Defence. DCC offices can be found on every base in Canada and employ approximately 750 personnel—70 of whom are located at Trenton. Wherever Canadian Forces are, you will find DCC. This includes locations such as Afghanistan, Alert, Jamaica, and at the most recent Olympics.
Kieran’s specialty is in heavy civil construction projects, such as runways, roads and landing pads. One of his most recent completed projects involved a night training flight runway, partially paved with red asphalt. The red asphalt shows up differently with night flights and improves night vision for the pilots.
