Three Teams Advance to RFP for New Schools Project

Released on October 31, 2014

Three qualified teams have been shortlisted to participate in the next stage of the competitive selection process to build 18 new elementary schools on nine joint-use sites in Martensville, Regina, Saskatoon and Warman.

Three experienced teams responded to the province’s Request for Qualifications (RFQ), which closed September 11, 2014.  After evaluating the responses, the teams have been invited to move forward to the Request for Proposal (RFP) stage for the bundle of six joint-use schools in Martensville (one), Saskatoon (four) and Warman (one), and the bundle of three joint-use schools in Regina.

The three proponent teams for both bundles are:
  • Joint Use Mutual Partnership
  • Plenary Education
  • Tandem Education Partners
“We are very satisfied with the level of interest and with the quality of the teams that submitted proposals,” SaskBuilds Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “This demonstrates the private sector’s very real interest in partnering with our government to build critically important infrastructure.  Moving forward to the RFP stage is a key step in our plan to have the schools ready for students on-time and on-budget in 2017.”

The new schools will be owned and operated by the public sector.  The five school divisions have been partners throughout the procurement process and will continue to be involved moving forward.

The project is a design-build-finance-maintain public-private partnership (P3) procurement model and a proponent is expected to be selected by summer 2015.  Construction of the new facility is expected to begin in summer 2015 with completion targeted for fall 2017.

The cost of the facility will be determined through the competitive process.
