Affiliated publications Building & Construction Canada and Energy & Infrastructure Magazine feature an article in their Winter 2013 issues on the construction of the Northwest Transmission Line (NTL). The article, titled “Powering Growth,” discusses various challenges associated with construction of the alignment, located in Northern British Columbia.
Valard Construction, a Quanta Services company, teamed with Burns & McDonnell to lead the 214-mile EPC project. Crux worked with Valard to provide design-build foundation services for seven lattice tower structures on the alignment located in particularly challenging terrain. Once completed, the NTL will connect remote areas of the province to the grid and pave the way for potential industrial developments.
