The Lower Mainland is on the verge of a construction boom that will see the upgrade and replacement of major transportation infrastructure including bridges, tunnels and rapid transit; hospitals; Kindergarten-Grade 12 schools; port facilities; and 75 major projects at YVR over the next 20 years.
VRCA is therefore partnering with the region’s largest procurers of public infrastructure – Partnerships BC, Port of Vancouver, TransLink and YVR – to present its new Infrastructure Series. These exclusive networking events are designed to inform members about each owner’s pipeline of bidding opportunities and how VRCA members can participate in the bidding process.
Join us for the first event of the series featuring Partnerships BC, in which the presentation will include advice on how to respond to Partnerships BC design-build RFQs, and how small- to medium-sized contractors can get involved in these projects.
What: Infrastructure Series featuring Partnerships BC
When: Monday, July 15, 4-7 p.m.
Where: Civic Hotel, 13475 Central Avenue, Surrey
