ATCO TO HELP WITH U.S. REBUILD
A second Canadian company is going to Paradise to help rebuild the community nearly destroyed by last November’s devastating northern California wildfires. Calgary-based Atco Ltd. says it has a nine-month, $70-million contract to provide workforce housing and camp support services for ECC Constructors while it remediates the environment and removes debris in Paradise and the surrounding Butte County. Atco’s Structures division is to provide 390 temporary modular rental structures that will serve as dormitory, kitchen, laundry and recreation facilities. Its Frontec division will provide services that include food, housekeeping, waste management and security. Last month, Calgary-based Black Diamond Group Ltd. said its U.S. business unit had won a $20-million contract to rent portable housing units at Paradise.
