Construction Notices – North Campus Infrastructure Project

Construction Schedule: January 2017 to August 2020

Location: Various locations throughout the North Campus – The focus of the work will be on Carey Ave, English Street and Smith Street but work will be involved throughout the North Campus, including some work within the buildings. Some work will occur in south campus areas.

Description of Project: The project will involve the replacement of the existing Canada Way electrical receiving station and the installation of new Canada Way receiving station equipment to be located in the existing Goard Way Campus Hydro Station. This will involve the installation of new underground electrical utilities, new North Campus unit substations, underground civil upgrades and landscaping.

Customer Impact: Beginning February 20th, 2017 and over the next few months we will be doing some preliminary work for the North Campus Infrastructure Project. It is intended that this work will not significantly disturb training sessions. With this in mind we have developed a schedule of work in consideration of our operations. Various conditions including weather may cause the schedule to vary.

If construction activities are unreasonably disruptive, please contact Dominic Cuthbertson at 778-945-6137 / dcuthbertson1@bcit.ca or Steven Chu at 604-453-4095 schu85@bcit.ca so we may arrange the timing of our activities to avoid causing any disruption. We will also be working with Security to ensure that parking and vehicle access in the area is disrupted minimally. PCL Constructors West Coast Group has developed a traffic management plan including flag persons, signage and hoarding for each area of investigation.
