Bird Construction Inc. will be taking part in work at a major LNG liquefaction export terminal in northwest B.C.

The Canadian contractor announced last week it has won a contract to build the concrete foundation at the unnamed facility. Bird’s scope also covers paving the area of the site that will house the LNG trains — the processing stages used in the gas liquefaction process.

Bird did not disclose further details about the LNG facility, or the value of the contract, but said the concreting package is one of the largest ever awarded to the company.

“This project spans three fiscal years and is a great example of the scale that our industrial self-perform capabilities can execute,” Teri McKibbon, the company’s president and CEO, said in a release. “We will draw upon our expertise and resources from across the country including our Bird Heavy Civil team.”

The concrete work began earlier this month and will continue until 2022.
