MacMillan Bloedel Power Boiler #19

LOCATION: Powell River, BC
YEAR: 1997
VALUE: $120.0 million

The COLBORNE ARCHITECTURAL GROUP Pacific was architectural sub-consultant to
Sandwell Inc. for the design of this major new Power Boiler project at MacMillan
Bloedel’s Powell River pulp and paper complex. Our role in this project focused on the
architectural components of the complex; cladding and roofing systems, design of the
control room, electrical equipment rooms, laboratory and staff areas. A new control
room in this building consolidated several previous sub-control centers into the new
facility. Exterior cladding systems continued the Powell River gold colour scheme used
elsewhere in the Plant, with a deep blue accent colour used to express louvres and
doors. Documentation was produced to suit a fast-track, multiple tender process.
