Coastal Business Resource Centre set for Sept. 3 opening in Prince Rupert
Industry and training partners will come together under one roof next month with the opening of the Coastal Business Resource Centre (CBRC).
The centre, announced during the National Aboriginal Business Opportunities Conference in April and initially slated to open on June 1, will open in the former TriCorp building on the corner of 3rd Street and 2nd Avenue West on Sept. 3. Owned by the Metlakatla Development Corporation and managed by Greenwell Asset Management, the CBRC brings large companies like Pacific NorthWest LNG, Urban Systems, Fraser River Pile and Dredge, the Watson Island Development Corporation and the Blended Capital Group together with numerous consulting firms and the rebranded Coast Training Centre.
"The intent of the CBRC is to provide a centralized brain trust/business resource and meeting space hub for the various mega projects that are going to take place in the region," said CBRC's Client Relations Manager Rochelle Saddleman.
"There is a wealth of consulting expertise amongst the various tenants which will help facilitate the development of these mega-projects."
As well as new tenants, the CBRC building has undergone a refit to include state-of-the-art boardrooms with video conferencing and audio-visual capability, and new furnishings, office equipment and phone systems. Prior to the opening of the centre, www.thecbrc.ca will be launched to provide information on the tenants and the availability of office space and boardroom rentals.
