Interior to Lower Mainland Project
Owner: BC Hydro
The Interior to Lower Mainland Project (ILM) involved the construction of a 255 km of 500 kV steel tower transmission line from Nicola Substation near Merritt to Meridian Substation in Coquitlam, BC.
R&R Utility participated in QA/QC checks, constructability reviews for field work, and design reviews which reduced the total number of structures needed for the project. R&R also participated in value engineering exercises with BC Hydro, which provided significant cost savings for BC Hydro.
