April 25, 2018 - Skeena Sawmills' $10-million modernization plan has been put on hold as a result of weaknesses in old sawmill buildings that were exposed following periods of heavy snowfall last winter.
Operations vice-president Roger Keery told the Terrace Standard that the mill is re-engineering its plans and has structural upgrades in mind for the existing sawmill building, which will take place before the mill moves forward with its modernization.
“We had some problems with old buildings over the winter,” Keery told the Terrace Standard. “With the snow we had, some of the weaknesses in our older buildings became obvious. Our original plan was to use the existing buildings, but we are rethinking that now.”
