Open House in West Fernie to Introduce Construction Contractor


The RDEK will be hosting an Open House this Thursday to introduce the construction contractor that will be completing the first phase of construction on the West Fernie Servicing & Restructure Project.

“Dawson Construction Ltd. will be mobilizing in West Fernie over the next week or so and we wanted to provide residents with an opportunity to meet representatives from the company. In addition, RDEK staff and our engineering consultant Kerr Wood Leidal will be providing information on the construction schedule and answering questions,” says RDEK Project Supervisor Elizabeth Ahlgren. “Having information sessions like the ones this week allows us the opportunity to be able to meet directly with the community and answer questions. Having said that, if people are not able to attend the Open House, we are always available to speak directly with them and provide them with the information they need.” 

The Open House will be held at the Park Place Lodge in Fernie this Thursday, March 31, 2016. There will be two sessions: 4:00pm to 6:00pm with a short presentation at 4:30pm and 7:00pm to 9:00pm with a presentation at 7:30pm. “Both sessions will feature the same information and same presentation, so people only need attend one,” adds Ahlgren.

There will be an official sod turning event on Friday, April 8th at 4:00pm in West Fernie.
