Contractor Cost:

1) We expect savings when BC Hydro/TELUS/Shaw conduit is placed by the same contractor at the same the same tender.

2) Does not include the cost to punch a pipe under the railway since cost savings are possible when utilities jointly.

are placed

3) When the public portion of the job is tendered, an optional separate cost can be requested from the contractor for the private property portion. Due to the efficiencies of scale in doing the 62 lots at the same public portion, we expect the cost to be each homeowner arranging for their own time as the lower than contractor.
