Bird Construction Income Fund announces revenue recognition treatment of $147 million Royal Alberta Museum Project


    TORONTO, March 14 /CNW/ - On February 19, 2007, Bird Construction Income
Fund announced that Bird Construction Company ("BCC") had been appointed by
Alberta Infrastructure and Transportation as the construction manager for the
$147 million Phase 1 Renewal of the existing Royal Alberta Museum in Edmonton.
Upon further review, and in accordance with the Fund's revenue recognition
accounting policies for construction management contracts where the
construction manager is not acting in an agency capacity, the Fund has now
determined that the entire construction value of approximately $147 million
for this project will be included in the Fund's revenue and backlog. The
revenue, including the fixed fee that BCC will receive for its services, will
accrue through the construction period which is expected to commence mid-2007
and be completed in mid-2010.
