KITIMAT, B.C. – Bird Construction announced this month that its contract for LNG Canada’s Cedar Valley Lodge project has been novated to LNG Canada’s EPC contractor.
Cedar Valley Lodge will house workers for the construction of LNG Canada’s export terminal project in Kitimat, B.C.
The contract included the engineering, procurement and construction of the project. The EPC Contractor has issued a notice to proceed.
The project was pursued by Bird in 2015 as a joint venture with Civeo Corp. The joint venture, Bird-Civeo JV, won the project in May 2016 and the parties signed a contract with a limited notice to proceed until a final investment decision was confirmed by LNG Canada.
With the consent of Bird and the EPC Contractor, Civeo has elected to exit its participation in the joint venture.
Bird, the managing partner of the Bird-Civeo JV, continues to lead the design and construction of the Cedar Valley Lodge and has entered into a joint venture with the ATCO Structures LNG Limited Partnership, which is now a party to the new contract.
A notice to proceed has been issued and construction is expected to begin in spring 2019.
