Acting through its wholly owned subsidiary, ATCO Structures LNG Ltd Partnership, it has entered into a joint venture (JV) with a subsidiary of Bird Construction Inc. to design, engineer and construct a 4500-person workforce accommodation centre, known as the Cedar Valley Lodge.
This centre will accommodate workers involved in the construction of LNG Canada’s export facility. According to the statement, the JV will execute a modular supply contract for 4500 accommodation rooms for the Cedar Valley Lodge Project through a JV between ATCO and the Haisla Nation. Design and engineering for the project is currently being carried out, with construction scheduled to start in spring 2019.
The centre will be one of the largest accommodation facilities ever built in Canada and will provide high quality amenities for the LNG project’s workforce. Since 2011, the company has operated a successful joint-venture partnership with the Haisla Nation, which will also benefit from the Cedar Valley Lodge project.
Nancy Southern, Chair and Chief Executive Officer with ATCO, said: “We are proud to support this crucially important energy infrastructure project in Canada, which is vital to the prosperity of our nation, and to build upon our proven track record of providing premier modular workforce housing solutions to LNG projects around the world.
“Our long history of delivering major workforce housing projects throughout the world continues to position us well to support landmark infrastructure development in the years ahead.”
