Over the next several years, new power and utilities projects, especially renewable energy-focused ones, will need to get built. The Government of Canada has announced measures for clean power generation, territorial transmission and storage for the future.
New power plant projects, though, are construction intensive initiatives that can require power and utilities companies to work with multiple operations over a long period of time. It’s important for both the plants and the construction companies to ensure they’re creating airtight agreements and properly handling any disputes that may arise.
At Osler, our Construction & Infrastructure team has helped contractors and power generation operators ensure all of the right documentation is in place before a project begins. They are also experienced in litigating issues both in court and in alternative dispute resolution settings.
As building activity in this sector continues, it’s important to work with a team that understands the utility-construction relationship so that your project can run smoothly.
