The Hartland Resource Management Group consortium will be led by Bird Construction, with Bird Capital taking a minority equity interest in the concession responsible for the design, construction, financing, operations and maintenance of the project.
The Facility will be located at the Hartland Landfill in Saanich, British Columbia, and is part of the CRD's Wastewater Treatment Project. The Facility will process the residual waste material from the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant to meet environmental regulatory requirements. The Facility will have capacity to treat over fourteen thousand dry tonnes of residuals per year.
The consortium plans to reach financial close in early February 2018, with construction expected to commence in the spring of 2018.
"Bird is proud to be part of the consortium selected as the preferred proponent to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the CRD's residuals treatment facility. This important project adds to our expanding portfolio of environmental and public-private partnership projects and further secures the Company as a key Canadian participant in this delivery model and in this sector," said Mr. Ian Boyd, President and CEO of Bird.
The team beat off bidders including Aecom and Acciona, which were also shortlisted for the deal in April.
