Infrastructure BC released its Spring 2024 BC Major Infrastructure Projects Brochure. This brochure showcases the public projects planned or underway in B.C., with a value of more than $50 million each. These projects range from early planning to pre-procurement and active procurement stages.

“Infrastructure BC’s publishing of the Spring 2024 Major Projects Brochure today comes during an important month for our province, Construction and Skilled Trades Month,” said Mark Liedemann, Infrastructure BC president and CEO. “This year’s theme, “Working Together to Build B.C.,” honours those whose expertise and experience have helped build the province. As part of our role in supporting the province and the industry in dealing with market dynamic challenges, Infrastructure BC will continue to examine and implement innovative procurement models, such as Progressive Design-Build, Alliance, and Target Price Contracts,” added Liedemann.

“At a time when B.C.’s construction needs are great, the ability to access high-quality, transparent project information is key to helping general and trade contractors plan and understand the direction of the market both locally and across the province,” says Chris Atchison, President of the BC Construction Association. “During this, the 7th annual Construction Month, we celebrate our industry’s rich legacy and vital contribution to B.C.’s economy. Together, we’ll work to build the infrastructure needed to support housing and our communities.”

Infrastructure BC supports government and project owners in choosing the most suitable delivery model to build complex projects such as highways, bridges, schools, and hospitals.

The Spring 2024 brochure includes projects from the Province of B.C., Metro Vancouver, BC Hydro, Capital Regional District, TransLink, and Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.
