Infrastructure BC announced the release of the latest edition of the BC Major Infrastructure Projects Brochure.
“Our government committed to taking quick action to modernize aging hospitals throughout British Columbia so people can continue to access public health-care services in modern surroundings,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health. “Hospitals around the province have served their communities very well, with dedicated health-care workers providing care for generations over the decades, but the time has come for many to be upgraded or replaced.”
“Through this informative brochure, Infrastructure BC continues to support the market with details that allow companies to better prepare the financial and human resources needed to bid on the broad range of opportunities available within British Columbia,” added Mark Liedemann, Infrastructure BC president and CEO. “This latest edition offers details on 85 projects throughout British Columbia, 12 of which are in the health-care sector.”
The BC Major Infrastructure Projects Brochure focuses on prospective public projects greater than $50 million from the early planning stage through to pre-procurement and active procurement.
