Journal of Commerce Preview for the week of January 27th, 2014

In this week's preview, we look at some of the stories we'll be covering in the Journal of Commerce for the week of January 27th, 2014.

Five lawsuits have been filed against the Northern Gateway project in British Columbia. Environmental groups and First Nations have launched the suits in federal court to challenge approval of the pipeline, and allege there are serious flaws in the Joint Review Panel’s final report.

Staff writer Richard Gilbert has a story about a joint venture between Fluor Corporation and JGC to do pre-construction work on the proposed LNG project in Kitimat, British Columbia.

Richard also has a story about opening of bids on a $1.6 billion electrical transmission line in Alberta. The winning company will build, finance, own and operate the line, which runs from Wabamun to Fort McMurray.

Daily Commercial News staff writer Patricia Williams has an article about the design process behind the construction of the Canadian Museum of Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Stephen Bauld has a column about the true costs of refurbishing and upgrading projects, and this week’s feature video is an interview with BC Association of Consulting Engineering Companies president Keith Sashaw from that organization’s recent economic outlook session.
