When Encana/Veresen began planning the development of the Cutbank Ridge natural gas processing plant in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, they knew they needed a building company that could meet their strict safety requirements, manage the entire construction process and supply the required buildings. A unique part of the scope surrounded the fact that the project required the financial flexibility to be a 24-36 month rental agreement. Encana had worked with Norseman Structures in the past and knew they were the right choice.

Since the decision to move forward with the project was made, Encana and Norseman Structures worked together to complete the construction of five buildings for the Dawson Creek site. The project includes a variety of models and sizes totaling over 37,000 square feet of clear-span storage and work space.

Construction began in November 2015 with all five buildings being fully functional by April 2016.

The structures serve many different purposes. Two of the buildings are heated with gas-driven radiant heat and used for material storage while two others are used for cold storage. The last building is used to keep emergency equipment such as ambulances and fire trucks ready to dispatch at a moments notice.

In addition to manufacturing and constructing the buildings, the following aspects of the project were managed by Norseman Structures:

  • Site preparation
  • Concrete block and screw pile foundation
  • Concrete floor slab
  • Insulation
  • HVAC
  • Electrical
  • Pallet racking

Norseman met all of Encana’s and Veresen’s detailed QA/QC requirements and also easily met all the Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) requirements for the project.
