BC Hydro finalizes worker accommodation project for Site C

On September 28, 2015, the Two Rivers Lodging Group was awarded an eight-year, approximately $470-million contract with BC Hydro to design, build, partially finance, maintain and operate a worker accommodation complex in conjunction with BC Hydro’s Site C Clean Energy Project.

ATCO is the primary partner in the Two Rivers Lodging Group.

The worker accommodation complex will provide lodging and recreational facilities for the majority of workers at the dam site for the duration of the construction of the Site C Project. The complex will have an ultimate capacity of 2,200 people.

The complex is one of several components of BC Hydro’s Site C Clean Energy Project, an 1100MW hydroelectric project near Fort St. John, BC, with capital cost estimate of $8.335 billion.

BC Hydro was represented by Dentons Canada LLP, with a team that included John Haythorne, Ryan Chalmers, Colin McIver, Ed Harrison and Michael Alty.
