ATCO Structures & Logistics (ATCO) has been awarded a contract to operate a 1,470 person camp for K+S Potash Canada GP in southern Saskatchewan. ATCO will provide catering, housekeeping, janitorial and maintenance services for the facility that houses workers constructing the K+S Potash Canada Legacy Project. The volume-based, multi-million dollar contract begins in April 2014.
ATCO's catering service will provide a six week rotating menu that will feature dining specials such as a full smorgasbord and summer barbeques. ATCO will also have responsibility for all cleaning and minor maintenance work, as well as operating a lounge and commissary that will provide convenience items for the workers.
ATCO pursued this project with its local Aboriginal partner, the George Gordon First Nation (GGFN) as the K+S Potash Canada Legacy Project is located on the traditional lands of the GGFN.
"We are very pleased to have the opportunity to expand our operations in Saskatchewan and to continue to work with the George Gordon First Nation," said George Lidgett, President, ATCO Structures & Logistics. "Working together we will ensure top quality service for the camp residents."
ATCO has partnered with the George Gordon First Nation on other large projects in Saskatchewan. Building on the success of this cooperation, the Legacy Project partnership demonstrates ATCO's commitment to growing capacity in local First Nations.
"The K+S Legacy Project is a significant economic opportunity for the George Gordon First Nation," said Chief Shawn Longman of the George Gordon First Nation. "Our joint-venture partnership with ATCO works towards our goal of establishing an active and healthy business community that sustains local jobs, particularly in the hospitality industry."
