Vinci Construction to build Springbank Off-Stream Reservoir in Canada

WCN Editorial Team 9 May 2022 NORTH AMERICA ENERGY & UTILITIES

Vinci Construction, via its earthworks subsidiary, will construct the Springbank Off-Stream Reservoir, situated 15km west of Calgary, Canada.

The subsidiary will build the reservoir on behalf of Canadian province of Alberta.

This project will help protect residents of Calgary and its nearby areas by re-routing and temporarily storing water from the Elbow River during peak volume events to prevent flooding.

The €263m (C$379 m) worth project is expected to complete in three years.

This project features a regulation structure on the Elbow River, a 29m high earthen dam stretching around 3.8km, and a 4.3km diversion channel.

The earthwork for this project in total is estimated at around 5 million cubic metres.

The contract also features road development works and construction of engineering structures on adjacent roads.

Vinci has over 5,200 employees and generated revenue of €1.6bn in 2021 in Canada.

In March, Monaco appointed Vinci Construction to construct the new Princess Grace Hospital in the country.

Scope of this €98m contract includes construction of the first new building, which will have 16 storeys and a six-level underground car park and cover a total of 65,000m2 of floor space.

This project is part of the government’s plan to extend and modernise Princess Grace Hospital.

The new building will be adjacent to the current hospital.

Construction work will not disrupt the hospital's activity, stated Vinci.

Vinci’s construction team will use a Building Information Modelling (BIM) system for construction design.

Construction works will be completed at the end of 2025.
