ATCO Structures & Logistics (ASL) today announced it has been awarded a contract to provide a major oilsands operator with workforce housing facilities for 744 people. The project is located 200 kms south of Fort McMurray, adjacent to this new in situ oilsands development.
“Demand for camps is high in the resource sector and it’s a good indication that part of the economy is continuing to strengthen,” said Harry Wilmot, President & Chief Operating Officer, ATCO Structures & Logistics. “ASL has a great team in place and we look forward to delivering workforce housing that provides our customer with a safe, comfortable environment for their employees.”
The project includes the manufacture and installation of a 684-person temporary camp and 60-person permanent camp. The temporary camp will feature comfortable rooms in multi-storey dormitories, a large central area with dining facilities, lounge, theatre, fitness centre and coffee shop. The permanent camp will include “lodge-like” amenities similar to ATCO’s Creeburn Lake Lodge, built north of Fort McMurray in partnership with the Fort McKay First Nation, and will feature large hotel-style rooms with private bathrooms, high ceilings, an open floor plan, large entryway and well-appointed reception areas. The lodge experience will be enhanced by additional camp services that include a bar and theatre.
