900 construction jobs expected; locals already working
A number of local workers and businesses are benefitting from the Mills Memorial Hospital Replacement Project – and the project has only just begun.
With construction activity on site for little more than a month, more than 15 local businesses have already been contracted for a variety of jobs. Local suppliers and contractors are doing work such as environmental monitoring, trucking, cleaning and watering neighbourhood streets, surveying, waste removal, fuel and septic services, and more.
Throughout the life span of the project, PCL estimates 900 jobs will be created with up to 350 workers on site at a time.
In addition to the jobs created on the site, approximately 40 more will be created to support the out-of-town workers at a workcamp on the outskirts of town.
