"Over the past year Tyee Log Homes Ltd has successfully completed two construction projects for the Ministry of Environment - BC Parks, within Mount Robson Provincial Park. Mount Robson is the second oldest Park in British Columbia's park system, in a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The first project involved the replacement of two timber bridges (1.2km & 3.1km) along the Berg Lake Trail. The bridges were replaced due to deterioration and not being able to be used by park service vehicles. The Berg lake trail remained open for the public by establishing a re-route trail around the work site. All materials where transported using the trail.
The second project involved the de-construction and reconstruction of the Hargreaves Shelter at kilometer 21 along the Berg Lake Trail. The Hargreaves Shelter was originally constructed in 1927; it is used as a day-use shelter and has significant historic and cultural heritage value. This project involved upgrades to the structure and the re-use of the historic log structure where possible. Tyee did an excellent job reusing existing logs and maintaining the visual historic appearance of the building. In addition Tyee was helpful in managing helicopter logistics by reducing the weight of materials brought into the site.
The two projects involved working in a backcountry environment, involving the logistics of moving materials and crews by the trail system or by helicopter. Tyee was responsible for all on-site construction activities, safety and environmental protection. Both projects were delivered on time and within budget.
