100 Saskatchewan Businesses Building Provincial P3 Projects

Released on March 4, 2016

InterWest Mechanical Ltd., a Saskatoon-based business, is the 100th Saskatchewan business to work on one of the provincial government’s four public-private partnerships (P3) infrastructure projects.

“This proves what we’ve said all along, that using P3s would not only allow us to build multiple projects at once, but also create significant opportunity for Saskatchewan businesses to help grow the economy,” SaskBuilds Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “This is just a start because there will be more opportunity for more Saskatchewan businesses to get involved as the projects move farther into construction.”

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our business and we are very pleased to be working on the new schools project with the Joint-Use Mutual Partnership team,” InterWest Mechanical Ltd. President Ken Swann said.  “We are proud to be recognized for the expertise we have developed after working on several Saskatchewan schools and other projects around the province.”

Interwest Mechanical Ltd. employs 55 Saskatchewan people and specializes in commercial, institutional, industrial, municipal and multi-unit residential projects.  The company will provide mechanical services including the boilers, piping and heat distribution systems, displacement ventilation systems, and heat recovery equipment for four of the 18 new elementary schools.

After detailed financial analysis, the government selected the P3 model to drive savings and ensure the projects are delivered on-time and on-budget for Saskatchewan people.  The Joint-Use Mutual Partnership consortium was selected through a competitive process to design, deliver, and maintain the new schools as part of a 32-year agreement.

The Government of Saskatchewan is using P3s to concurrently build an unprecedented 18 new elementary schools on nine joint-use sites, the Regina Bypass, the largest transportation infrastructure project in the province’s history, the new Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford with an integrated correctional facility, and a state-of-the-art long-term care centre in Swift Current.
