CALGARY, Alberta, May 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
ATCO announced today that it has secured a $70 million contract to provide workforce housing and camp support services for ECC Constructors LLC’s (ECC) 1,500-person Tuscan Ridge Lodge near Chico, California.
The nine-month contract will support ECC’s efforts to provide environmental remediation and debris cleanup in the Butte County region of northern California, in particular the community of Paradise, which was devastated by the “Camp Fire” wildfire in November 2018—the most destructive wildfire in California’s history.
“This contract marks an important milestone for our operations in the United States and clearly demonstrates our ability to provide a full suite of critical, essential services with maximal efficiency,” said Adam Beattie, President, Structures. “Providing our customer with a turnkey solution offers peace-of-mind and allows crews on site to focus on the task at hand.”
As part of the contract, ATCO’s Structures division will provide the rental of 390 temporary modular structures that will serve as dormitory, kitchen, laundry and recreation facilities, all prepared for occupancy in under 50 days. Our Frontec division will provide camp support services that include food, housekeeping, waste management, janitorial, maintenance and security services throughout the duration of the contract.
“This project represents one of the largest workforce accommodation facilities ever supplied for disaster relief efforts in the United States and is a testament to the strength and skill of our team in the region,” said Jim Landon, President, Frontec.
ATCO is becoming an established player in the workforce housing and permanent modular construction space in the United States. Recent projects include a 1,900-person workforce housing camp in Lake Charles, Louisiana; a 66-unit apartment complex in Truckee, California; and a secured contract to manufacture two Marriott International hotels with a combined capacity for 245 guest rooms, also in California.
