The nine Saskatchewan joint-use schools project that began construction in September 2015 has now passed the halfway mark. Thanks in part to a mild winter which allowed for continued construction, the $635M public-private partnership project is expected to be completed by the 2017 school year.
The project, which began with a consultation process that included administrators, teachers, parents, students, and the community at large, is now being called the best learning place for children in the province by Saskatchewan Deputy Premier & Minister of Education Don Morgan.
“The positive progress and feedback throughout the community are a testament to the Concert Infrastructure team and their strong relationships with all project stakeholders – in particular with the Government, school boards and our design build partners Bird Construction and Wright Construction,” says Derron Bain, Concert Infrastructure Senior Vice President.
