Project Description

Timber Run Hydropower Corporation mandated Equinox Construction Services (ECS) to carry out the design, contracting, sourcing, execution and
QA/QC, along with the Project Management tasks, of all hydromechanical equipment required at the Norland Hydropower Plant. After completing the
Dewatering, Excavation and Reinforced Concrete phases, ECS was responsible, through a turnkey delivery model, for delivering the equipment that was
designed by a 3rd party, under ECS supervision.

Also known as an ECI (Early Contractor Involvement) model, ECS was deeply involved in optimizing the designs, preparing realistic budgets and
timelines, updating the relevant stakeholders, and prioritizing the Client’s objectives.

Furthermore, ECS managed the approval process with the Parcs Canada Agency (PCA) as well as the Quality Control of the equipment including 4 intake
gates with guides, deck grating, handrails, embedded parts and a 1-inch spaced trashrack.
