Civeo secures accommodation building contract for Canada’s $30.5bn Coastal GasLink pipeline
American workforce housing builder Civeo has won a contract to build accommodation for thousands of workers who will be building the 670km Coastal GasLink pipeline in Canada.
Completing four separate projects amounting to approximately $76mn, Civeo will provide around 2,000 rooms during the 2019-2021 peak construction period of the pipeline, which runs from Dawson Creek to the west coast of British Columbia.
The award of this contract provides a confidence boost for potential investors in the project, which is heading towards a final investment decision later this year.

Bradley Dodson, Civeo's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are pleased to announce these contract awards, solidifying our position as the partner of choice for workforce accommodation solutions in Canada.
“The strength of our First Nation relationships was critical to these awards, and we look forward to collaborating with our partners to provide best-in-class accommodations along the Coastal GasLink pipeline project. Along with our recent acquisition of Noralta Lodge, this contract is a testament to our continued growing presence across Canada.”
Once complete, the pipeline will transport natural gas to LNG Canada’s facility near Kitimat on the western coast of BC. Much of the gas is expected to be exported to Asian markets.
Civeo already has experience in building worker accommodation for industries in Canada, notably for companies working on Canadian oil sands.
uPVC pipes, safety glasses and Spetz app launched
This week has seen a range of new product and service launches for the construction trade.
Vinyl Pipes has launched uPVC Column Pipes, which extend the life of pipes. Column Pipes with a power lock (patent pending) will not only to raise the safety standards but improve the efficiency of Borewell installations. This Lock system, a by-product of the in-house R&D team, is designed to bear load making the pipes stress-free, torque resistant and perfect for handling high pressure water.
Conscious that using the correct glasses could prevent 90% of jobsite injuries, Milwaukee's expanded range (pictured) features anti-scratch and fog free styles, new lens colours and magnification features, complementing its 'cut resistant' gloves.
Arriving on the UK app scene, Spetz is billed as a ‘one-stop shop’ for anyone "panicked by household flooding or electricity failure," as it unites tradespeople with consumers.
Spetz founder and CEO Yossi Nevo said urgent needs come in all forms and it’s unlikely that any household has tried and trusted tradespeople to match every possibility.
"The Spetz app rapidly connects them with a suitable ‘rescue service’ in as little as 30 seconds and that rapid reassurance is completely free - it’s the tradespeople who pay for these job leads. Those start at around £6 a time, but the tradesperson can then go on to make thousands from our automated system funnelling the best and most appropriate work their way.”
Spetz is now three years old operating in Israel, Australia and is now beginning a full UK rollout, after a ‘soft’ launch.
