PRHP Celebrates our first female Superintendent!

PRHP is very proud to congratulate Natasha, our first female Structural Superintendent on the Site C Project.

Natasha has been working in construction for over 11 years.  She began as a labourer and as her passion grew, she decided to go back to school for civil engineering to pursue a career in construction.  Since then she has worked in Canada and the USA before joining Site C in 2017 as a Field Engineer.  Her hard work, dedication, teamwork, and tenacity have not gone unnoticed.  In April, Natasha earned a promotion to Structural Superintendent, the first woman on the project to hold the title of Superintendent.  It is very encouraging to watch her work with the crews and achieve great results.  I am very proud to have her as part of our PRHP team and especially proud of what she has accomplished to move the project forward.  Congratulations, Natasha!


We were incredibly privileged to have CJDC TV visit the site recently for a feature on Women in Construction, and to highlight Natasha and her experiences.

Major Project Milestone Achieved: Diversion Tunnel Breakthrough

On Saturday, June 22 at approximately 1:30pm, we reached a major project milestone at Site C: tunnel breakthrough on the first of 2 diversion tunnels on the left bank.  Once complete, the tunnels will temporarily reroute a short section of the Peace River so we can build the dam across the river bed on dry land.  Crews commenced tunnel excavation on August 22, 2018, and worked diligently to excavate over 60,000 cubic metres of rock.

Congratulations to the Tunnel Crews for this fantastic achievement! All the hard work, dedication, and perseverance helped deliver this milestone safely.  Thank you as well to all the supporting teams both in the field and in the office for their contributions to this terrific result.
