Antares Construction LLP provided construction management, labour and civil services for BC Hydro's Prime Contractor, Allteck Line Contractors. Civil services were provided by locally by Summit Blasting from Lillooet, BC.
The Antares crew were all members of Sekw'el'was and neighbouring St'at'imc communities and had a key role in the successful completion of the ground work. The relocation was finished ahead of schedule, preventing the need for a second planned outage by BC Hydro.
Antares was pleased to welcome Rob Mellander, our new Senior Construction Manager, to our organization on this project.
Seton Canal Refurbishment, 2017
Antares was Prime Contractor for the refurbishment of a 3.8km concrete-lined power canal located in Lillooet BC. Seton Canal is a critical structure in the Bridge River system with impacts to water resource management. It is also normally the sole water source for two fish-bearing spawning channels.
While repairing the concrete lining and the deteriorating expansion joints were a primary objective, significant environmental planning and a multi-disciplinary effort was essential in the projects success in delivering quality while minimizing impacts to wildlife.
Nakusp Boat Launch, 2015
Our team has provided construction management for various recreational boat ramp construction projects throughout the province for BC Hydro, including the boat ramp located in Nakusp.
Cheakamus Penstock Inspection, 2016
Antares was Prime Contractor for the condition assessment and non-destructive testing inspection of the interior and exterior surfaces of the penstocks at Cheakamus Generating Station outside Squamish BC. The inspection of penstocks represent a unique challenge due to the combination of high-angle access and rescue requirements, confined space procedures, and potential exposures to lead and hazardous waste created during the work. We worked with our client, subcontractors, and safety professionals to ensure the inspection was both detailed and completed safely.
Lil'Tem' Hotel, 2014
Situated in the remote community of Seton Portage, the Lil'tem' Hotel offers 42 comfortable rooms with modern amenities. Antares acted as General Contractor throughout construction and worked together with the client and other stakeholders during project development and permitting.
