LISTING: TSX
SYMBOL: BDT

Bird Construction Inc. announced today that it, as part of the Harbour City Solutions consortium, executed a contract on March 28, 2017 to design, build, finance, operate and maintain a biosolids management facility for the City of Hamilton, Ontario. Bird has a 50% interest in the construction joint venture that will design and build the project. Bird has also taken a minority equity interest in the concession responsible for the design, construction, financing, operations and maintenance of the project through Bird Capital, a wholly owned subsidiary. On January 30, 2017, the Company had announced that it was part of the consortium named preferred proponent for the project. The consortium has since achieved financial close.

The facility will use a thermal drying process to produce pellets which will be used as fertilizer or fuel. The plant will process up to 60,000 wet tonnes per year of biosolids over the 30-year term of the contract.

Bird expects to start site preparation this summer with full construction commencing shortly thereafter. The facility is expected to be operational in the spring of 2020.
