Petrowest has secured sub-contract on the workforce housing facility for the Site C hydro-electric project in northeastern British Columbia .

The Two Rivers Lodging Group was selected by BC Hydro as the preferred proponent for the construction of the workforce housing facility (announced May 4, 2015 ). BIRD Construction Inc., part of the Two Rivers Lodging Group consortium, has selected Petrowest’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Petrowest Construction BC Ltd., for site preparation work. The project is expected to commence the first week of August and has an approximate value of $7.3 million .

"We are pleased to have been selected by BIRD for the earth moving aspects of the Site C workforce housing facility contract", said Rick Quigley , Petrowest’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "Looking forward, activity levels in northeastern British Columbia have increased following spring break up, including additional infrastructure projects associated with both Site C and BC LNG, which positively signals stronger activity levels for Petrowest in the back half of the year and into 2016."
