Company responsible for buildings maintenance, facility systems and grounds keeping and signage maintenance
ATCO Structures & Logistics (ATCO) has been awarded a contract to provide facilities & operations maintenance services to five resource development sites in northern Alberta operated by a Canadian exploration and production company. The two-year contract, which began in March 2014, was awarded after a competitive bid process.
ATCO will be responsible for the maintenance of the interior and exterior of buildings, facility systems such as HVAC, electrical and plumbing, as well as grounds keeping and signage maintenance. All the work will be managed through a computerized maintenance management system.
“We are very pleased to continue to provide our facilities and operations maintenance services in this growing region of Alberta,” said George Lidgett, president, ATCO Structures & Logistics. “Whether these services are offered as part of our bundled solution or are stand alone, we are committed to the upkeep of our customers’ facilities and to ensuring the safety of all site occupants and visitors.”
ATCO will also collaborate with local Aboriginal communities for this project. The Chipewyan Prairie Dene-owned Northern Wolf Ltd. has been contracted to provide grounds maintenance services and certified trades contractors, which supports Aboriginal employment and local capacity building.
ATCO provides similar services to the Department of National Defence in eastern Canada and to the National Research Council. In Canada’s High Arctic, ATCO maintains various assets in the community of Resolute Bay and at the Eureka research base in Nunavut. Through its joint-venture company, Nasittuq, ATCO provides site services to the Canadian Forces Station Alert, the most northerly inhabited settlement in the world.
