TransAlta is a power generation company and marketer of wholesale electricity. Beginning as a small, local power company in 1909, TransAlta has transformed over the last century to become an experienced and respected power generator and wholesale marketer of wind, solar, hydroelectric, natural gas, and coal electricity. The Big Level Wind project is located on about 6,900 acres of privately owned land on Big Level Mountain. Each of the turbine sites required approximately 10-acres of timber-clearing and road construction. The project consists of 25 wind turbines utilizing a mix of 131-metre and 110-metre towers.
Welliver was hired to perform as general contractor for the construction of the office and warehouse/maintenance space for the overall project including numerous new windmill towers. Utilizing pre-engineered metal building construction, the new 5,000 square foot building was erected as the client’s ‘home base’ for managing the windmill farm.
