BC premier announces $100 million modular housing project
British Columbia premier Christy Clark met with Britco employees in Penticton, B.C. on September 27 to launch a $100 million modular housing project.
Britco will design and build accommodations for a large workforce housing project in northern Alberta for Devon Energy Corporation. Accommodations will consist of more than 1,500 rooms built at Britco’s Penticton and Agassiz facilities.
Earlier in the year Britco completed an 880 room project for the same region.
Work on the new project will start in October of this year and the project is scheduled to be completed and fully commissioned in December of 2015.
