27-Oct-14 - A new analysis of Metro Vancouver’s business case for a proposed second
waste incinerator finds estimated costs could be off by $806 million to $1.3
billion. In its report, ICF International identifies a number of errors and incorrect
economic and engineering assumptions which could result in a total project cost
of $1.8 billion to $2.3 billion, a range which is more than 80% greater than Metro
Vancouver’s business case estimation of $1 billion.
