Britco Signs $100 Million Contract to Build Workforce Housing

Britco, the huge commercial modular company, just inked a $100 million deal with Devon Energy Corporation to build a workforce housing project in Northern Alberta, Canada. Britco will provide over 1,600 rooms and other auxiliary buildings for the project.

With over 1,000 employees in plants in Canada, the United States and Australia, it truly is one of the biggest system built manufacturers in the world.

Earlier this year, Britco provided Devon with another workforce camp that contains 880 rooms. These units will be built in British Columbia where they already have over 200 employees in their Penticon facility and hopefully will be adding more.  They have more than 500 employees in Western Canada.

Last year Britco signed a huge contract with Manitoba Hydro to build a 2,000 room workforce camp for them at the new Keeyask Generating Station in Northern Manitoba.

Congrats to Britco, it sounds like a great project to be a part of! Be sure to share images from the construction process. I'd love to see them and hear about some of the advantages and drawbacks of the project, especially building in this cold environment.
