Our ideas make inroads

Barrette-Chapais’s operations extend over a vast area covering over 100,000 km2. To access this territory, the team plans and builds the infrastructure needed to open up hundreds of kilometres of roads, like preparing the sub-base and installing bridges and culverts. Barrette-Chapais is recognized for the excellence of how it works on the land. Our attention to access planning and maintenance means that raw materials are transported efficiently and safely.

  • Timber harvested all year round
  • Use of non-standard vehicles and equipment
  • Compliance with environmental regulations
