Prince Rupert Airport–Terminal Upgrade

Projects / Institutional

Project info

Prince Rupert is a key transportation hub for BC’s North Coast, serving as a vital link for land, air, and water transportation. The Prince Rupert airport, consisting of the air terminal building, maintenance building, fire hall, and runway, was built in the 1960s and early 1970s and required a significant upgrade.

Our scope consisted of fully renovating all electrical systems on the existing 20,000 square feet air terminal building. The project was completed in stages and involved completely gutting the terminal building down to the framework and rebuilding accordingly for each project phase. This included supplying and installing interior and exterior lighting fixtures, public address system, lighting controls, fire alarm, video surveillance, Canada Border Services Agency equipment infrastructure, and NAV CANADA systems infrastructure. 

To overcome challenges with access to the site and materials, we utilized prefabrication to reduce our on-site footprint and ensure consistent quality of the installation. As a result, the upgraded air terminal building now provides a modern and safe facility that meets the needs of travelers to Prince Rupert and the surrounding area.
