Project Description

Timber Run Hydropower Corporation mandated Equinox Construction Services (ECS) to carry out the design, contracting, sourcing, execution 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 270 cubic-metre volume as
