When a new 287 kV transmission line was needed in order to power the expanding industrial presence and economic development in northern British Columbia, our experts were chosen to provide environmental protection and monitoring for the project.
Spanning 344 km of difficult terrain from Terrace to Bob Quinn Lake to the north, new power line rights-of-way, clearing, and access to construction sites required thorough regulatory support. Overseeing the environmental components for construction, our work included developing protection plans, management and monitoring systems, training programs, and First Nations engagement. Incorporating a quality control and quality assurance system kept the project moving forward in order to stay on schedule.
The environmental monitoring program, as developed to include participation from all nine First Nations, included training and equitable and dependable job opportunities (as environmental monitors) for up to 18 people.
Acting as the environmental/permit manager, our team prepared, liaised and submitted various project permits on behalf of the client.
