John Hart project business event announced

There are business opportunity events March 31 and April 1 for the John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project.

BC Hydro and SNC-Lavalin have announced business opportunity event dates March 31 and April 1 for subcontractor and jobs opportunities for the John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project in Campbell River. There will be three separate business events. The first day is for construction-related companies only, the morning of the second day will be open to targeted ancillary businesses, and the afternoon will be for qualified, individual job seekers. All events require online registration. Space will be limited.

“This business event is a continuation of a process that began a few years ago to profile local business capabilities and capacity, and the opportunity to get involved in this billion dollar project,” says Campbell River Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Colleen Evans. “It all started with the major project business portal going online in fall 2011, the highly successful business speed dating event in summer 2012, and now this important interaction with the John Hart contractor. We hope businesses continue to get actively involved.”

Registration at closes March 26 at 4 p.m. or as soon as registration slots are filled. There is space for about 120 contractors and suppliers, about 112 spaces for ancillary businesses, and up to 600 job seekers.

“This event is the logical next stage in the procurement process for the John Hart project,” says Vancouver Island Construction Association CEO Greg Baynton. “It provides an excellent opportunity for contractors and suppliers to have a face-to-face interview with SNC-Lavalin to discuss the opportunities and requirements associated with the project. I would encourage all interested contractors and suppliers to register early.”

Online applicants need to select the appropriate job theme for which they are qualified.

“The third event on April 1 is an information event for job seekers to learn more from SNC-Lavalin representatives and team members about occupations that will be in demand and when they will be needed,” says North Island Employment Founds Society executive director Doug Preston. “It will be about the when and how to connect with employers involved with the project and will assist job seekers in targeting the right employment opportunity at the right time. Everyone wins when employers can connect with people who have the skills and experience they need. This will be an information session and resumes will not be accepted at this event.”

All three events are open to all businesses and individuals located on or off Vancouver Island.

SNC-Lavalin’s team consists of generator and turbine supplier, IMPSA, financial lenders and design builders that include AECON and Frontier-Kemper Construction ULC (tunnelling).
