Concert Infrastructure completes five high schools in Alberta

June 10, 2024, Vancouver, BC – Concert Infrastructure, the lead investor and manager of Concert-Bird Partners, is thrilled to announce the successful completion of five high schools across Alberta. These state-of-the-art learning facilities were constructed under a public-private partnership (P3) with the Government of Alberta, meeting the critical educational needs of growing communities while exemplifying excellence in infrastructure development.

The five high schools, located in Leduc, Blackfalds, Langdon and two in Edmonton, have been designed to provide new space for more than 6,900 students. Constructed with sustainable practices and energy-efficient systems, each school is poised to achieve LEED Silver Certification, aligning with Concert Infrastructure's commitment to environmental stewardship.

"We're proud to have delivered these much-needed schools on time and within budget, reinforcing Concert Infrastructure's reputation for community-building and our quality infrastructure," expressed Derron Bain, Chief Executive Officer of Concert Infrastructure. "These high schools are more than mere buildings; they epitomize modern educational institutions poised to nurture learning for generations, enhancing the economic and social vitality of our communities—a commitment further underscored by the investment of Canadian union and management pension plans in this essential public infrastructure."

“Alberta Infrastructure is proud of the award-winning work Concert-Bird Partners has done building these five high schools for Alberta students,” says Pete Guthrie, Minister of Infrastructure, Government of Alberta. “P3 builds represent our government’s commitment to ensuring schools are built efficiently, and Alberta taxpayers get the best value for their investment.”

The project lead investor and manager is Concert Infrastructure, with construction by Bird Design‐Build Construction Inc. and Wright Construction Western Inc.; design by BR2 Architecture; and maintenance and renewal by Ainsworth Inc., ensuring optimal functionality for years to come. Under a 30-year design-build-finance-maintain contract, the high schools will be owned and operated by their respective school jurisdictions.

As part of Alberta's commitment to educational modernization, the facilities are designed to foster '21st Century Teaching and Learning,' integrating collaboration, technology and creative spaces to inspire students and educators alike. Concert Infrastructure extends its gratitude to the Government of Alberta, local communities, school boards, parents and students for their partnership and support throughout the project's lifecycle.
