Bird Construction Inc. Announces Its Wholly Owned Subsidiary, Stuart Olson Construction Ltd., Has Been Awarded The Nanaimo Correctional Centre Replacement Project

Canada NewsWire


MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 11, 2021 /CNW/ - Bird Construction Inc. (TSX: BDT) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Stuart Olson Construction Ltd., has been awarded a $154 million design-build contract for the Nanaimo Correctional Centre (NCC) Replacement Project in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Bird previously announced being selected as the preferred proponent late last year. The Stuart Olson Construction Ltd. design-build team includes the local expertise of 17 collaborating partners.

The NCC Replacement Project features modernized spaces for educational, vocational and certified trades training in addition to rehabilitative and culturally responsive Indigenous programming. It also includes Vancouver Island's first provincial custody capacity for women. The two local First Nations, Snuneymuxw and Snaw'Naw'As, will also have input into the design as well as job and contract opportunities during construction.

Design activities are expected to commence in January 2021, with pre-construction proceeding in the first quarter of 2021.

"This project is one that demonstrates a strong fit for our institutional portfolio in British Columbia as well as an important and valuable piece of infrastructure for the community," said Mr. Teri McKibbon, President and CEO of Bird. "We look forward to working with our partners and the local community to successfully deliver this infrastructure project."
